GEOMETRY, FLEXIBLE, PSYCHEDELIC

 

Annexe expands the Art Gallery of Ballarat function spaces, creating a new frontage to historic Camp Street and the adjoining plaza of Alfred Deakin Place. The project shifts across hybrid postures of public hall, verandah and bandstand, formally and programmatically recalling local typologies.The project transforms a simple ‘events marquee’ brief into a flexible response to site and program providing an enclosed multi-purpose space for talks, workshops, installations and gallery functions. Operable glazed panels open the facade for summer openings and transform the project into a bandstand for public performances toward the adjacent plaza.
