Oxygen Youth Facility

Project background

Oxygen Youth Space is Moreland's first youth centre and is a place for young people to hang out, meet friends, learn new skills and participate in a range of activities.

The centre was built as part the Moreland City Council Oxygen Project. This project is looking at ways to improve and create spaces and services for young people in Moreland. The Youth Centre offers shared spaces, including free wifi, pool table and Xbox. 

The current spaces include:

Council's youth centre, Oxygen Youth Space, is expanding in 2017. The expansion will allow the centre to have a multipurpose room, internal courtyard, kitchen and an office space for youth in Moreland to access throughout the week.

Project update - 5 October 2017

Oxygen Youth Centre - constructionFollowing the successful completion of Stage 1 of the Oxygen Youth Space in 2013, Council resolved to implement the remaining stages (stages 2 - 4) of the Oxygen building masterplan.

Similar to Stage 1, the building will consist of prefabricated modules constructed by Modscape – the team engaged to design and build the facility – at its factory.

Construction of the modules is well underway. They will be transported and craned into place the week of 21 October, weather permitting. The remaining works will then be completed on site, including landscaping, with the project expected to be completed in November 2017.

The expansion of the multipurpose, shared facility will mean more meeting spaces, a kitchen, offices and an internal courtyard for existing youth services and activities.

The project contributes to the overall wellbeing of the community and provides a safe and interactive space for young people to socialise, learn – and access information and services, all under one roof.
