It’s been in the works for quite some time, but we can finally announce that McCorkell have been awarded the $16.8m design and construct contract for the Jewish Holocaust Centre Redevelopment project in Elsternwick.
Partnering once again with the renowned Kerstin Thompson Architects, the Jewish Holocaust Centre will be redeveloped to accommodate the growing number of visitors to the centre each year.
The museum will feature a stunning unique patterned transparent glass brick facade and internally the project is fit-out with the highest quality joinery and fixtures.
As part of the redevelopment, the new centre located in Selwyn Street at the heart of the Elsternwick Village precinct will include a purpose-built children’s museum to help boost Holocaust education for younger students. The centre will also feature a larger foyer and permanent exhibition spaces, flexible learning spaces, it will host enhanced contemplation and memorial spaces and have an expanded library and research facilities.
This redevelopment will ensure that the JHC, with its strong local and international reputation, will be cemented as a must-see museum and education experience.
