TRANSITION EXHIBITION BY HERE STUDIO
Did you catch the Transition exhibition at the Civic Hall today? The launch took place last night and the Grand Old Lady looked spectacular in her mood lighting. The lighting captured and highlighted the ornate Art Deco features…The Embossed ceiling, the gorgeous suspended light fittings, rare, solid Otway Timber floor, original stage and drapes. and the bold geometric pillars. The scene would have been complete except for the boarded windows. Could you imagine watching a concert or wining and dining at a function here at The Civic Hall complete with lighting and all the Art Deco fittings and features? The hall has a presence that invites you in and leaves you wanting more…
This event marked the end of the 1st phase of the Community Design Process. The 10 Concepts were on show and will be available for further viewing and feedback from this Tuesday….please post more comments at the Foyer on Tuesdays 9am-5pm and Thursdays 12pm-7pm. The Here Studio Staff need to know what you liked or did not like about the concepts…they are not set in concrete and the next phase of the process will refine them down to 5 concepts based on your feedback and that of the whole community…so get involved!!
Thank you to Mairin Broidy and her hubby for creating this beautiful portrayal of what could be at the Ballarat Civic Hall.
