The Goods Shed, Ballarat redevelopment is an exercise in restoring the heritage-listed goods shed building and surrounding plazas into a vibrant activity space that balances the charms of yesteryear with the expectations of today and tomorrow.
The spaces include a 300 seat theatrette, a ballroom and an event space, partnered with a dining precinct encompassing a distillery, restaurants and cafe. These were supplemented with a completely new external events space and public plaza to be used for markets, displays, civil activities, performances and general community use.
The Goods Shed redevelopment precinct consists of a 77 room Quest apartment hotel, 500+ multi-deck carpark, a bus interchange, events hall, 1200m2 retail development and a landscaped community outdoor plaza.
i2C have been engaged by Pellicano Group to design (architecture, interiors and wayfinding) the redevelopment of the historic The Goods Shed and precinct into a performing arts, events, dining and community centre.
The Goods Shed is due to be completed early in 2022, with the exception of the retail aspect which is expected mid year.
