Returned Soldiers’ Memorial Hall


The Returned Soldiers’ Memorial Hall grew out of the returned soldiers’ associations that were established throughout Australia during and after World War I. Recent conservation works by Lovell Chen have included the removal of past extensions and, as the building is sited over old mineshafts and on a compacted mullock heap, underpinning. A new gallery designed to Passive House standards and conceived as a contemporary interpretation of the arcaded loggia, nestles behind the Institute.
