The new Orange Regional Museum will deliver a vibrant place where the local community’s history and stories will be displayed, studied and celebrated.
Urbis, in collaboration with Crone Partners, designed the museum’s public domain. It includes a rejuvenated civic plaza with a network of public spaces at ground level and a rooftop sculpture terrace. The grass rooftop terrace provides a new elevated viewing platform within the city which provides an enchanting connection to the adjacent Victorian Park and the Holy Trinity Anglican Church spire.
The Orange Regional Museum has transformed the city’s civic and cultural precinct, it has deliver a vibrant space where the local community’s history and stories will be displayed, studied and celebrated and provides an wonderfully optimistic new public domain.
Urbis led the landscape design for the museum’s public spaces. The design is focused on sustainability and cleverly incorporates elements to cope with the extreme temperatures experienced in Orange. Visitors will be able to take in their surrounds while walking, playing and picnicking on the museum’s sloping rooftop lawn.
