Ulumbarra 5

Another view of how this conversion from gaol to arts centre works. Taken from within the central hub.

The red carpet gives it a supreme look and new tiles are so clean and perfect! Wonderful old stone walls!

@777margo Absolutely!

@maggiemae Thanks MM, you can see now why I was so taken with the place.
November 5th, 2018  
Wow -- this is just incredible.

@taffy Incredible is the right word, has to be seen to be believed. I have all digits crossed that something like this could happen to the old Geelong Gaol which is also a Pentonville model structure. The bluestone will require outstanding architects to make the place bright like this though.

Goodness, I love a gaol (architecturally speaking, of course). What a beautiful space.

Very impressive architecture shot.

@rosiekerr Absolutely! and the amibience is warm and welcoming. Quite an achievement.

@yaorenliu Thanks Yao, wide-angle lenses come in handy sometimes.

This is stunningly beautiful! I somehow can't shake off how dreadful life there once must have been, however!

@Weezilou I was completely gob-smacked by the conversion of this notorious hell-hole into vibrant community asset. I wonder if you'd feel the same if you were there.

I like this a lot, think colour gives it a warmth. Very different from the interior you posted a few days back, although I realise they're not identical.

They have done such a good job of converting it to an arts centre, but I bet it would still give me the shivers if I went in there.

Great lines and shapes. It looks like a fascinating place. Our local historic prison from the 1820 Settler times is much smaller and is now a coffee shop on campus

Very pleasant looking now :) fav
November 5th, 2018  
Wow, it is most beautiful. It looks so bright,airy and welcoming :)
November 5th, 2018  
What a fabulous conversion. I'll have to add this to the list of places to check out when we next head east :)

@golftragic I'm sure I'd feel as you do and in awe of the beauty of this place now. Back when we visited and saw several of the goals, it was heart-breaking to consider what people were put through. I'm so glad to see this put to a more beautiful use, but those first impressions will ever remain!

Attracts architecture - deters history. Fav!
November 5th, 2018  
what a fabulous shot, marnie. and you made it even more fabulous with the silhouettes at the end of the corridor. blazing aces, my friend. aces!
November 5th, 2018  
What a metamorphosis! It really looks beautiful now. The red carpet is so striking it catches and holds your attention and gives everything a warmer glow. Great shot!

@fbailey Thanks FB, this one cried out for colour.
November 6th, 2018  
@onewing I wonder.
November 6th, 2018  
@dibzgreasley Sounds good to me, repurpose the old.

@gilbertwood I wouldn't've known about this gem except my daughter had to pick up granddaughter #2 from there after some school thing while I was last visiting.

@hermann Extraordinary place.
November 6th, 2018  
@Weezilou I hear you Louise, but in this case I do think the positive has out-weighed the historical negatives. Added to which the alternative probably would've been demolition of a piece of history.

@haskar Thanks Haskar

@summerfield Thank you so much Vikki, you've made my day.
November 6th, 2018  
@merrelyn Definitely.

@olivetreeann You've hit the nail on the head Ann.
