A cultural precinct unlike any other on the Gold Coast.

Take a guided tour of the HOTA, Home of the arts precincts with architect ARM Architecture, landscape architect ARUP and key staff from HOTA. They will be showcasing the three most recent additions to HOTA including The HOTA Bridge, Outdoor Stage and HOTA Gallery.

The Gallery façade is a distinctive architectural beacon for the Gold Coast: colourful, celebratory and contemporary. BUT the inside is a sanctuary for art with calm neutral palettes for the works on display.

Each of the six gallery spaces is digitally enabled, immersive and destinational with 5m ceilings and roof-loading capability. It contains a 1,000m2 AAA-rated exhibition hall plus 3 x 300m2 permanent collection galleries, artist workshop, children’s gallery, casual fine dining on the ground floor and Exhibitionist Bar on the rooftop with 360-degree views of the Gold Coast skyline, Nerang River and hinterland.

Further information:
