Kerstin Thompson Architects' (KTA) Concept Design, presented in May 2017, was based on a Masterplan for Riversdale developed by architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer in 2012. The scheme was designed to transform Bundanon Trust's Riversdale property into the central hub of the Trust's activities, protecting and displaying the Boyd art collection and providing more opportunities for engagement with the arts for students and the general public.
The proposed development will ensure Bundanon Trust is an outstanding cultural asset in regional Australia for many years to come.
A NEW HOME FOR THE BOYD COLLECTION
The new Boyd Gallery will display artwork from Bundanon’s unique collection of nearly 4,000 artworks, valued at over $37.5 million, and provide safe and defendable art storage.
WORLD CLASS FACILITIES FOR STUDENTS AND ARTISTS
A Creative Learning Centre will house the Boyd Gallery and contemporary spaces for performances and learning. The new residential wing will triple the Trust’s current accommodation capacity.
RIVERSDALE - THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN OF THE SHOALHAVEN
Riversdale will be open to the gallery-going public and for concerts and events, increasing visitation and attracting national and international audiences to the region.
AN ECONOMICALLY SUSTAINABLE BUNDANON TRUST
The proposed expansion at Riversdale will generate revenue to enable Bundanon Trust to be financially sustainable and will deliver substantial economic benefit to the Shoalhaven region.
