The Glasshouse Port Macquarie

The Glasshouse in Port Macquarie is a 600 seat high specification theatre space, three-storey art gallery, dance studio, and function space located in the heart of this community. As a much-needed venue for theatre and musical performances, the Glasshouse has become the proud host of theatre and musical performances, gallery spaces, and travelling exhibitions. It also acts as the local community hub, enabling social and community functions and workshops throughout the area.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged to provide initial cost plans and manage the inception of the design in 2007 with involvement until project completion in 2009. In addition, we were required to incorporate and display archaeological heritage and features through glazed flooring and wall sections to share the history of the venue.
