Located on Phillip Island, the Cowes Cultural and Community Centre will be a new purpose-built public building supporting a range of uses including a theatre, library, gallery, museum, community function rooms and offices.

The design creates a dynamic and interactive destination that is set to become a source of civic pride. It will bring together the cultural and social aspirations of the community and draw in visitors to showcase the region’s rich history and culture.

Designed to Passivhaus Standards and incorporating mass timber construction, the new centre will expand and diversify existing community programs and services. 

With community engagement ongoing, the aim is to craft a centre that supports the local community’s needs both now and into the future as well as the region’s projected population growth.
