Luggate Memorial Hall

Whare Mahana

After Luggate Memorial Hall closed in 2017, we've been working closely with the Luggate and wider Upper Clutha community to plan for an innovative, future-proofed replacement community hall that will meet current and future community needs. 

This hall is the test case for future community facilities in the Queenstown Lakes District, and will be potentially the first Passive House Certified community facility here in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The goals of the project are to provide a space which:

  • is a focal point for the community heart
  • is a smart and viable solution for a growing community
  • offers a healthy, comfortable environment to help foster vibrant communities. 

Project timeline


Luggate Community Centre - An interim solution

While work on the permanent replacement is underway, a fully-accessible building has been installed on the Hopkins Street Reserve in Luggate.

The Luggate Community Centre opened in November 2019 and is expected to be in use until the permanent replacement is completed in mid-2021.

The Centre is a fully-accessible relocatable building which includes a kitchen, bathrooms and a main function space and is the perfect place for events, meetings and classes.
