Queensland Art Centre

This row of buildings has been adapted and added to over the past 100 years. Recently it has become adapted as an arts centre. The house typology remains evident.
The ambitious breadth of courses on offer matches that of larger arts institutions, yet at the same time the compact nature of the centre can provide an intimate social setting in which to try out new interests.

Our proposals for accommodating more use included the following ingredient-based changes; a new café, a garden next to the chimney, sound studios, a unified façade, a welcome mat treatment at the forecourt, a raised roof, and a big extension with work spaces to let.
