Arts Centre Gateway

Concept Master Plan Study

Client: Arts Centre Melbourne
Status: Complete 2014

Team with John Wardle Architects & PVH Architects

The Victorian Arts Centre Precinct contains Victoria’s most prestigious arts venues: including Hamer Hall, the Theatres Building, The National Gallery of Victoria and the Australian Ballet Building. The Arts Centre Gateway concept master plan builds upon the 2013 Melbourne Arts Precinct Blueprint which proposes a series of urban strategies to unlock Southbank and connect it to the city. The focus of the study was on five key objectives; a new home for the Australian Gallery of Performing Arts, a new front door to Hamer Hall and the Theatres Building, a dramatic gateway to the arts centre precinct, a landmark development on the Y site and an enhanced public realm and activated Sturt Street.
