Magabala Books

Magabala Books are Australia’s only indigenous publishing house. Whilst being very well placed at the entry to town, this original bus depot building turned its back to the street and was an inviting place for itinerant use. A significant part of the brief was to create building prominence from the main roundabout and brand identity through the form of the building and not through overbearing signage. Being on the edge of Chinatown, the building was also required to comply with the historical precinct design guidelines.
