Immigration Museum, Melbourne, VIC
Jackson Architecture, in association with Allom Lovell Conservation Architects, sensitively restored and developed the Old Customs building, with its strong historical links to the development of immigration in Australia, into an exciting interpretive centre that captures the rich and important history of migrants to Victoria from the 1800’s to the present day.
The interpretive displays are themed around Leaving, Settlings, Journeys and Getting ln. The restored Long Room features a contemporary installation, and the Tribute Garden records the names of more than 7,000 registered migrants. A restaurant, function and seminar spaces offer contemporary amenities, to complement the museum functions and enhance the economic viability of this important cultural project.
