Birds Australia Discovery Centre

Newington Armory, Sydney Olympic Park, N.S.W

Six former explosive workshop buildingson the former Royal Australian Navy Armament Depot were adapted for a new facility for the Birds Australia Discovery Center. The building included a new gallery, library, office space and general purpose education areas. The entire facility was designed so that it could be completely removable, having been designed with no permanent fixings or destructive alterations. This meant the existing heritage fabric of the buildings would remain intact.
