Shellharbour Civic Hub

The new cultural heart of Shellharbour, in the NSW Illawarra region, incorporates a plaza and public library, a 350-seat auditorium and museum space, community rooms, local council chambers, offices and service centre, with 170 car parking spaces for staff and public use. Occupying a steep site between commercial and residential zones, the building has a complex curved roof structure that mediates the different street alignments and contours, and extends shading around its perimeter.
