The MCA’s extensive collection is housed off-site from their Sydney Gallery. Facilities needing to be incorporated in the 3000+sqm space included general art storage, sensitive object storage, conservation workshops, crate workshop, archives, exhibition workshops as well as catering for future collection expansion. A loading dock was also incorporated.

The existing warehouse building was fitted out so that the thermal environment of the storage area is largely passively controlled with only the most sensitive objects storage lightly air conditioned. Design of this solution required detailed thermal modelling analysis and is expected to yield very stable storage conditions at a low ongoing cost.
