Abstract

Most community centres were developed to meet the basic function as the operating office for committee meetings. Depending on the level of creativity of the local community, the functions varied accordingly. The paper covers the theoretical basis and precedential review of community centers with expanding functions: community resource and neighbourhood library. The inclusion of the paper offers methods of the conduct of content analysis and precedent study on community centres. The variation of functions such as for education, heritage incubation, charity, meeting and gathering is categorized in the precedent study's findings. The current function and future development shall meet the local community's needs in the digital age. Their aspiration on the new community centre shall be translated to a new revitalized space such as 'one roof community complex'.
