With several public spaces built upon the seamless integration of the urban inspirations and this regional workplace, the Gov Hub connects plazas, laneways, a central lawn, and a conservatory. Together, these spaces complement the existing character of the city.
Our team, alongside John Wardle Architects and AECOM, created several new public spaces and a wayfinding strategy for this civic space, including a glassed public conservatory link between the Civic Hall and the Gov Hub, a civic plaza on Mair Street, a central community square, and the pedestrian links to the Ballarat CBD and station.
The completion of this project is a considerable milestone for Ballarat, opening hundreds of new jobs and reshaping movement around the space to reinvigorate a major part of the city. We hope that projects like the Gov Hub help to encourage and inspire new approaches to civic infrastructure and government buildings.
