Port of Sale

A new civic cultural hub

Wellington Shire council engaged fjmt to revitalise the historic precinct known as the Port of Sale into a multi-use cultural and civic hub. Originally designed by Stephenson & Turner as an office building in the late-modern brutalist style, the brief for its alteration encompassed redeveloping the precinct of shared multifunctional spaces and revitalised links to the local port, providing the coastal town with a new cultural and community heart.
The project includes a regional Art Gallery with four gallery spaces, a public library, multi-purpose meeting rooms and Art space, Council Chambers and function space. It also offers a Visitor Information centre and a Cafe.
