Belmadar has been engaged by the City of Sydney to transform the Heritage-listed Pyrmont Community Centre. Welsh and Major have designed a “bold” extension to a community Centre in inner-city Sydney. The building was designed by William Kemp in 1884 and refurbished by Jones Brewster Regan in 1993.

The bold gesture that is the new building, and the way it connects with the existing spaces and structures with a series of architectural stitches and splints, assemble all the building fabric built across a timeline of over 100 years into a cohesive Pyrmont Community Centre.

The redevelopment of the Pyrmont Community Centre is an assembly of materials and spaces that creates a flexible and vibrant community hub that should serve the local community well for the next 50 years and beyond.
The works include:

  • Demolition of the existing foyer, office, toilets, and gymnasium;
  • Construction of a new lift, foyer, community room and gymnasium;
  • Refurbishment of the original heritage buildings and more recent link structure;
  • Associated site works, including refurbishment of the courtyard and plays structures.
  • The existing childcare facility will continue to operate during construction.

All other operations will be relocated.
