Description

The Market Hall project forms part of our original master plan for the Belconnen Loop Precinct with a value of $280M. Stewart Architecture developed the master plan for the site and continue to be the head consultant for the project.

Belconnen Markets is to become an iconic food market destination modelled on a European food hall. As part of the design Stewart Architecture took part in a European study tour of market halls to explore retail trends and market best practice. The design incorporates a large market hall with adjacent ancillary service and retail buildings. The markets is serviced by a large service dock as well as basement parking for 190 cars.

Modern industrial style brick, steel and timber forms make up the service and lower buildings with an expansive steel framed shed forming the main hall and tying everything together. A facade of steel mesh has been designed with distinct pitched ‘arches’ reminiscent of the traditional market hall edifice
