Armadale District Hall

Feature Image


The conservation of the historic Armadale District Hall in the civic centre of Armadale was a successful undertaking which was spurred by strong support from the community and a local government in touch with their constituents. The sensitive conservation and detailed restoration were the culmination of investigations, research and a commitment to the Burra Charter principles which guided the works. The result is the retention of the Inter-War Art Deco inspired building which contrasts beautifully with the new contemporary multi-purpose hall accessed by a glazed passageway.

The works included the refurbishment of the 1936 Armadale District Hall and extension to construct a second large scale community hall space complementing the existing hall. Atelier JV provided structural design services for the new extension and the refurbishment of the Heritage Hall.
