The completion of Lighthouse Theatre marks the beginning of a new and exciting era for performing arts in Warrnambool.
The $9.3 million redevelopment has injected new life into the heart of the CBD and secured the cultural vitality of the city for decades to come.
It is one of the biggest of several transformations the building has undergone since its original inception as the Warrnambool Town Hall in 1891.
The latest redevelopment designed by Williams Ross Architects has brought the building into the 21st Century, with improved access, amenities and theatre technology, a versatile boutique performance space for grassroots theatre and a contemporary glass façade which has redefined the face of Warrnambool's cultural precinct.
With a nod to the theatre's art deco style branding, the Primera Arctic was selected for their main auditorium. Ferco installed nearly 500 seats with the distinctive stitching design.
The Arctic is an ergonomically designed and durable theatre seat which is installation and maintenance friendly with no finger traps.
