Hassell has unveiled the design for a $38.5 million redevelopment on the Geelong Performing Arts Centre. Major upgrades will be done to the building’s façade and facilities and position the centres as one of the leading cultural venues in Victoria.
Upgrade works focus on a new entranceway with an impressive contemporary façade that improves the venue’s accessibility and amenity.
According to Hassell Principal and Head of Design Mark Loughnan, the redevelopment on the performing arts centre is proof that Geelong is paving the way in regional arts.
“The expansion will also include rehearsal facilities, new dance studios and provision for creative industries offices. As the only state-owned arts centre outside Melbourne, Geelong Performing Arts Centre will not only be a landmark destination it will also service the needs of the growing creative and cultural community.” – Mr Mark Loughnan
