Architects: Liminal Studio with WOHA (2021)

The Hedberg is a new creative industries and performing arts precinct built around the historic Theatre Royal. The award-winning development consolidates an important urban nexus of Hobart, that presents 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.

Tours: Saturday 12 November, 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. Sunday 13 November, 10 am, 11 am and 12 pm.
