The historical town hall at the gold rush town of Inglewood is an important example of regional architecture from the Victorian era. This masterplan and feasibility study provided us with the opportunity to work with Loddon Shire Council and local residents to identify their needs and explore key development opportunities for creating a community hub within this existing town hall building.
Our concept masterplan proposes a single storey extension of the building to the north to provide a main reception area for the community rooms and hall. A larger two storey addition is proposed to the south to accommodate new amenities and storage areas.
The concept for the new additions is to create elegant contemporary building forms that are reflective of the present and respectful of the past to enhance the architecture of this historical town hall.
