The Hedberg is a new creative-industries and performing arts precinct built around the historic Theatre Royal (1837). The award-winning development consolidates an important urban nexus of Hobart, presenting a performing and creative arts destination and education precinct that fuels Tasmania’s cultural offering in a contemporary global context.
The design strategy balances the theatrics of the building’s purpose and sensitivity to its urban and heritage context. The external expression suggests a shimmering theatrical curtain, pulled open to reveal the warmth of the activities within. Its sparkle takes its cue from the opalescence of abalone shells, traditionally used to carry fire.
Co-located with the Theatre Royal, The Hedberg integrates performance hubs and venues, rehearsal spaces, creative workshop ‘laboratories’, front and back of house spaces and adaptive reuse of the heritage-listed Hedberg Garage. Take a behind-the-scenes look with the team from LIMINAL Studio.
