The new Coffs Harbour Cultural & Civic Space will deliver a vibrant place where the local community’s history and stories will be “ Welcome to All.”

Urbis, in collaboration with BVN Architects, designed the museum’s public domain in conjunction with Coffs Harbours future masterplan.

It includes an engaging “Internal street” connecting the wider public domain to the pedestrian corridor with a network of spaces at ground level and a level 3 terrace.

The Significant existing Moreton Bay Fig tree is retained and becomes the focal point of the site and design.

As part of the State Significant Application, Urbis led the landscape design for the museum’s public spaces.

The design is focused on sustainability and cleverly incorporates elements to create a seamless transition from the external and internal spaces. Visitors will be greeted with a generous series of considered spaces , including a civic sloped lawn and level 3 amphitheatre for gatherings and outdoor stage performances.

To create a sustainable, engaging & inclusive series of different spaces steeped in local identity & story “welcoming” to all
