Brisbane City Hall
Brisbane City Hall has re-opened following 3 years of intensive work on site with the re-vitalised building widely praised. Tanner Kibble Denton Architects has had the privileged of leading the design consultant team on this major project.
Since 2009, TKDA in association with GHD (TannerGHD) has guided the architectural and heritage outcomes for the revitalisation of one of the most significant buildings in Queensland - involving conservation and adaption works, new building services coordination and the design of new components for the building, including the Museum of Brisbane.
The final stage of the Joan Freeman Science and Technology at SCEGGS Darlinghurst is now complete and is being used by staff and students.
Completing the Masterplan developed by Tanner Kibble Denton Architects
for the school's future growth, the Joan Freeman Science and Technology
Centre includes six science laboratories, four TAS rooms and six art
classrooms over four levels within the inner city suburb of
Other facilities include a 254 seat tiered lecture theatre, underground carpark, a new pedestrian entry and landscaping from St Peter's Street, a large outdoor roof terrace, new canteen and an undercover eating area. A light filled and active central circulation space extends the School's primary pedestrian spine, from which the facilities of the centre are accessed.
The building responds to privacy issues to neighbours through appropriate setback and massing, restricted openings and viewing, paths screening and planting buffers and is a sensitive addition to a dense urban precinct.
The building incorporates a number of environmental initiatives, including natural ventilation and daylighting, use of thermal mass and night-time purging, rainwater collection and reuse, plus energy and water efficient fittings.
