Orange Regional Museum Museum and Community Centre by Niall Durney & Ashley Dennis

Home > Winners > #61439


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Orange Regional Museum

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Museum and Community Centre

INSPIRATION:
-

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The building connects a series of previously unsuccessful public open spaces and disparate buildings by incorporating layers of Building, Landscape and Events Spaces to respectfully integrate the new building into the existing precinct, creating a new identity and strengthening civic conditions within the site. The design can be understood and experienced in different ways at the human scale as visitors move around, up or through the building, blurring the distinction between architecture and landscape with each interface responding uniquely to its immediate context.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The design can be understood and experienced in different ways as the user walks around, up, or through the building. It blurs the distinction between architecture and landscape with each interface responding to its context. The grassed roof is a defining feature of the design, rising from the existing lawn, providing a public green space and new vantage point to the adjacent park and across Orange City. Intended as a flexible space, the lawn can be used for a variety of functions including outdoor exhibitions or simply an area for locals and visitors to relax or play.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Located in the City of Orange, a regional town 260km (162 miles) northwest of Sydney, Australia and with a population of approximately 42,000 people, the Orange Regional Museum development was designed to form an integral part of a community and cultural precinct for the town and surrounding area. Crone was awarded the project via a competitive tender process in early-2013 with the project completion and launch date in November 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The building envelope is shaped to accentuate a line-of-sight to the existing library and gallery, giving prominence to a significant public building. The public domain strategy incorporates a new civic square to accommodate events while large seating steps create a public amphitheatre and a ramp loops the building, providing access to the lawn. The resolution of the complex, angular geometry and attention to detail were critical for a building that uses a minimal material palette of concrete, glazing, metal panel and grass.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1,300 square metres or 14,000 square feet

TAGS:
Architecture, Community, Civic, Public, Architect, Modern, Landscape, Cultural, Museum

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The Orange Civic precinct site encompasses a suite of existing buildings including art gallery, library and theatre as well as a series of vacant lots within a large block of council owned land. The chosen museum site was in some ways the most challenging and constrained portion of the precinct but also presented the greatest potential to connect a variety of programs, pedestrian routes and desire lines with a strong presence to the city centre and adjacent park.
