Museum Discovery Centre Expansion Project
The Museums Discovery Centre Expansion Project in Castle Hill is a collaboration between Create NSW and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS).
A new state-of-the-art building designed by award-winning Sydney-based architectural practice Lahznimmo Architects, will be constructed on the Castle Hill site, and will include spaces for the storage, care, research and viewing of the Powerhouse Collection, as well as flexible spaces for education and public programs, workshops, talks and events.
PSA Project is pleased to be engaged on this project providing programme management services and supporting the project team. This includes master programming services and undertaking program review workshops with key stakeholders, to understand the staging and interdependencies of the work within a larger program of works.
This world-class facility will enhance the site’s ability to protect valuable State, heritage and cultural assets in a secure, environmentally-controlled and sustainable space.
Inside the Museums Discovery Centre, visitors can find hundreds of items on display and thousands more waiting to be discovered through Behind the Scenes tours.
The proposed expansion of the Museums Discovery Centre will increase opportunities for storytelling, skill-sharing, education programs, tours, events, partnerships and temporary exhibitions, and provide greater access to the Powerhouse Collection for the people of Castle Hill and broader Sydney community.
