“Green-roofed regional museum dubbed best public architecture in NSW”

Awarded the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture at the recent NSW Architecture Awards, the Orange Regional Museum by Crone Architects boasts an expansive grass roof – a continuation of the ground-level lawn.

“This bold, large-scale intervention re-organises a whole city block through the application of a combined landscape, architectural and urban solution,” the Sulman jury noted. “Simple, bold and confident moves have created a destination for locals and visitors, which [provides] a clear and active address to the larger civic precinct.”

The roof extends the site’s available public green space and enhances it with a vantage point across the city.

Inside, the Orange Regional Museum houses a collection of permanent and temporary exhibition spaces in addition to a visitor information centre, a cafe, and council offices.
