Cultural and Civic Space fly through videoYou can now fly-through Coffs Harbour’s new Cultural and Civic Space with BVN Architects now at the stage to give the community a better look inside. The fly-through video highlights the project's design, focusing on how the community will experience the inside of the building on the various levels.
A Cultural and Civic Space for AllThis is the first in a video series where we will hear more about the Cultural and Civic Space from a number of user perspectives. In our first episode we hear from the Architect, the Artist and the Librarian. Featuring Matthew Blair, Lead Architect for the project, Ash Frost, Coffs Harbour Regional Museum and Gallery Program Coordinator, and Judy Atkinson, our much loved children’s librarian at Coffs Harbour libraries. Each of them outline their vision, the creative scope and community benefits that will flow from the Cultural and Civic Space.

The Coffs Harbour Cultural and Civic Space: Accessible to AllThis building has been planned and designed to enable everyone in the community easy access to cultural experiences and civic resources.
Coffs Harbour: A growing cityIt’s important that we invest in infrastructure that will serve the current and future population of the Coffs Harbour area, and the Cultural and Civic Space is just one of the projects that will support our city’s growing population now and into the future.
Civic spaces and the city of Coffs HarbourThe co-location of council and cultural services will create a central hub, improve customer service, internal communications and efficiency, as well being more cost-effective than upgrading and maintaining the two existing administrative buildings.
How will the upgrading of Cultural spaces benefit Coffs Harbour?Expanded, modern and centralised cultural spaces will create a vibrant community hub, generating improved health, educational and economic outcomes and bringing colour and vitality to Coffs Harbour and its region.
