Gaden Community Centre

The Gaden Café at the Holdsworth Community Centre involved alterations and additions to the existing Woollahra Seniors Centre to make way for a new ‘meals on wheels’ service and revitalised community centre.

KAA’s design for a new lift and outdoor eating area as well as alterations to the existing café and kitchen has re invigorated an underutilised and under appreciated community resource.

The provision of a lift was key in the centre’s success, opening up the previously inaccessible building to a broad range of community members. The centre now regularly holds events in the re-vamped café area, which opens to the public for breakfast and lunch alongside its ‘meals on wheels’ function.
