Brighton Municipal Offices & Council Chambers
The foundation stone of the Brighton Municipal Offices was laid on 13 February 1959. The building was officially opened on 21 July 1961 and includes a municipal library, council offices and council chambers.
The building design is similar to that of the famous Guggenheim Museum in New York, USA. The exterior is rendered in red brick with white concrete decoration. The interior decoration and furniture was by Grant Featherston who designed the circular foyer, council chamber, and two circular meeting rooms, including extant furniture and light fittings.
The building is still used by the City of Bayside for council meetings and a public library continues to operate from the complex.
Visitors are invited to experience the circular meeting rooms of the Brighton Council Chambers, designed by Grant Featherston.
