Armadale District Hall Conservation and Extension
What's on this page
Despite some rather heavy rainfall which has turned the car park in to a giant mud patch, progress on the District Hall is going well. The lesser hall has been re-roofed and the main hall is expected to be re-roofed in the coming weeks. The opening for the new entry foyer has been cut in and the old toilets have been removed. The addition to the gallery, that was added on in 1938 has been removed, reverting the gallery back to the original 1936 version. This has greatly opened up the hall, both from the perspective of the main floor and the upstairs gallery. In the coming weeks, the main hall floor will be strengthened to accommodate new foldaway tiered seating, the main hall roof will be replaced and a new ceiling will be installed. Keep checking back for more updates.
Work has now commenced on the conservation and extension of the Armadale District Hall. The aim of the project is the refurbishment of the hall to satisfy the needs of the local community. The Armadale District Hall has cultural heritage significance and is listed on the state register for heritage places and on the Municipal Inventory for the City of Armadale. It was constructed in 1936 with a tiled terracotta roof, masonry walls and timber flooring. It was originally used as a cinema house and the ticket booth and stage off the Main Hall are still extant. All these features are to remain and be protected. The existing trees in Centenary Grove and around the building are also to be protected.
Apart from the conservation works, there is also a new multi-purpose hall, new amenities and a reconfigured car park included in the scope of works. Please click on the links below to view the site plan and floor plan.
