Meet the designers behind our new Community Centre
Arkee Creative are the brains behind the bespoke changes coming to Patterson Lake’s Community Centre. We had a chat with their director, Paula Bowen, who told us why they’re so excited about this project.
The changes Arkee Creative are making to the Community Centre won’t just revitalise existing spaces, they will add more features to keep it contemporary.
“We are making large changes to modernise and open the space up to the wonderful views of the lake. We are inspired by the waterside location and have designed a space that will be welcoming and create a backdrop for the residents to really enjoy” Paula said.
The lakeside location helped inspire the choice of colours “a natural palette of light timbers, soft greys, marble, blues and yellows provide a costal and warm mood.”
As a creative studio Arkee Creative thrive on working with communities and people that inspire their creative team, which is why Patterson Lakes was such an enjoyable project for them.
And of course the community behind the spaces are just as important as the changes, and Paula has enjoyed her time working with our residents.
“It has been a great process working directly with the residents committee to make sure the area meets the needs of the residents.”
With the fantastic work from Arkee Creative adding an extra touch of magic to Patterson Lakes, we can’t wait to showcase this in early 2018 when the Community Centre opens.
