Saturday the 19th of September 2015, marked the official opening of the Koorie Heritage Trust's new home in the Yarra Building at Federation Square, a Lyons & IADV (Indigenous Architecture & Design Victoria) designed fitout. The relocation is a significant symbolic move of Koorie culture from the margins of the city to its centre.
Officially launched by the Honorable Natalie Hutchins MP, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, along with opening remarks by the Right-Honorable Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, the event coincided with the Trust's 30th Birthday celebrations.
The Trust is a peak indigenous organisation in Victoria and its new premises allow it to share its heritage collections, create a place for the Koorie community to take pride in their identity, and where the wider community can come together in the spirit of reconciliation.

Sannah is one of Lyons' most experienced Senior Architects, with extensive experience in major health projects. Sannah's role includes the management of projects through the design documentation and delivery phases, working closely with each client to ensure that their project solution reflects their unique requirements.
