Hire Our Space

Our Ethics Centre in-house events are held in a unique event space that is also available for hire.
 
Legion House, constructed in 1902, is a textbook example of ‘creative adaptation’ – reinventing old spaces for contemporary use.
 
This modestly sized, four-storey heritage-listed structure began life as the YWCA’s Central Institute, functioning for more than 60 years as a women’s hostel and outreach service. As part of the new Liberty Place development, the building was adapted with every effort to conserve the original bones, and was reopened in 2013. The building generates its own energy through a gasification system, and was constructed with sustainably sourced materials from demolition sites and managed forests. The Ethics Centre now occupies a long-term gifted lease over two levels.
 
The Ethics Centre’s event space boasts soaring ceilings, an abundance of natural light, and industrial design features. It has a spacious entry foyer for event pre-registration, and a generous extended marble bar area for food and drinks. The space is suitable for functions including talks, corporate events, workshops, product launches, meetings and cocktail parties for up to 120 people.
 
In-house audio visual, including PA system, radio lapel microphones, music playback and two linked plasma screens are also available and the space is close to hotels, parking and transport. Furniture can be removed to suit your event needs.
