“The vision is to make Broken Hill a “destination” that provides a rich collection of art, architecture, entertainment and culture. ”
AJ+C were appointed Project Manager and Lead Designer for the Broken Hill Civic Centre (BHCC) upgrade by Broken Hill City Council. The upgrade of the BHCC is crucial to the success of the Council’s strategy to double tourism by 2020, integrating various sites across the city. The vision is to make Broken Hill a “destination” that provides a rich collection of art, architecture, entertainment and culture. The strong heritage of the outback city and its resplendent Civic Centre provides the perfect vehicle to transform and revive the city and launch the vision of “fostering creativity, innovation and inclusion”. The interiors are strongly influenced by the local context. The strong rural and mining history of Broken Hill provided inspiration for new elements and materials. Our design retains the integrity of the original design and its inherent character while bridging the span in time with a compelling and contemporary design response. The result, a scheme with a depth and complexity not possible with a new building.
