Bundanon Art Museum


A subterranean Art Museum sits at the heart of the new Bundanon. Sensitively embracing the existing landscape and its ecology, the design responds to current and future climatic conditions.


Situated on the picturesque Shoalhaven River, spans 1,100 hectares and serves as a tribute to renowned Australian artist Arthur Boyd. The expansion project aims not only to provide a haven for artists but also to showcase Boyd’s original art collection, currently valued at $43 million and housed in Sydney under stringent preservation conditions.

This national public treasure, bequeathed to the Australian public by Arthur and Yvonne Boyd in 1993, is a space for creativity and contemplation of the landscape’s intrinsic value. The project, designed to house the Boyd art collection and offer world-class facilities for adults, school students, and artists, encompasses two major elements: a 160-meter suspended accommodation bridge and an art gallery ingeniously carved into the side of a rock escarpment.

Our role

WSce undertook the hydraulic and fire services design through to a design development level of documentation.  The site had poor access to authorities water supplies and is in an area prone to bushfire which where key design issues we resolved with the client.

WSce was later involved in the construction administration and commissioning phases of the project as a peer reviewer.
