Mitchell Gate Relocation
This project has put an iconic piece of history back in its original home, and made a statement entrance along our border with the Lot Fourteen precinct.
As part of the Public Realm Strategy the Mitchell Gates were removed from their previous location on Victoria Drive. After a period of storage they were renovated by local craftspeople and then restored to their original setting on Frome Road, where they provide a stunning frame to the Barr Smith Library steps, as intended. The gates also provide a distinctive pedestrian access point from the University’s Helen Mayo buildings across Frome Road.
