Fig Tree Galleries delivers a much-needed artist precinct for a coastal community while retaining and celebrating the significant history on the site. A colourful series of playful screenings invite passers-by to enter. The creative design approach ignites curiosity about the site’s past and inspires interactive action from visitors through the series of playful experiences and signage. Simple, white-painted gallery walls allow the interior to showcase the artwork, highlighted with dimmable track lighting, whilst the raked ceilings accentuate the feeling of space. Fig Tree Galleries is a testament to the broad and meaningful impact that creative arts can bring to a community.
