The new ‘Hyphen’ Library Gallery space acts as a cultural hub of the city, and is an exciting state-of-the-art addition to the Wodonga city area.

Situated on the corner of Lawrence and Hovel Streets, the new library project is a great example of how SUPAWOOD is supporting communities – particularly in regional areas – in making inspiring spaces easy.

SUPAWOOD collaborates with architects and designers who have creative challenges. The Wodonga Library & Arts Space was no exception, with our qualified engineering and CAD team guiding JWP Architects through the process, providing shop drawings and helping them to achieve a suitable solution for the space.

This project is one of the largest WAFFLE blade projects SUPAWOOD has created, and it houses over one kilometre of blades, and over 150m² of SUPASLAT – both finished in the SUPAFINISH Blackbutt concept veneer.

All SUPAWOOD panels and linings provided for the project not only accommodated access hatches and services for the building but were also custom-shaped to fit the space. Installed by 23 Carpentry, SUPAWOOD products also featured their fire retardant MDF substrate, in order to meet the fire regulations and standards for the public building.

SUPAWOOD Fire Retardant (FR) panels continue to meet all requirements for Fire Group 1, 2 and 3 for any interior area within any class of building. This is despite more stringent BCA fire-hazard regulations continually being introduced.

In keeping up with the newest regulations and requirements in the industry – be they fire, acoustic, or sustainability-related – SUPAWOOD gives designers the confidence that the products they specify are compliant.

If you’re in the area, pop into Hyphen and check out its several galleries, full library service, workshops and meeting rooms. Observe the effects of the stunning new interior linings on the space, and how the harmonious blend of SUPAWOOD products contributes to the final, premium completed library space.
