The Sanctuary at the Bunurong Memorial Park in Dandenong South, Victoria is a reflection space at the newly transformed community parkland. Designed by BVN Architects and built by Hansen Yuncken, the Sanctuary is partially suspended over the lake, features a sweeping ceiling, and opens out to stunning views.

The SBS Group design team worked closely with the plastering contractor to provide prefabricated solutions as an alternative to conventional time-consuming onsite construction methods.

The project involved replacing the structural steel and secondary ceiling with lightweight 3D curved framing modules using SBS Ultra Frame. The complex architectural framing was executed through accurate and precise shop detailing and fabrication undertaken in-house with frames manufactured into manageable units and delivered to site for a quick and simple installation.

The rigid clinch riveted design proved superior to the originally documented furring channel system, removing the guesswork out of forming the ceiling traditionally onsite. The contractor was also able to directly fix the linings to the frames.
