Queensland Architecture Awards commend Architectus Conrad Gargett projects

The annual Queensland Architecture Awards were hosted last friday at Brisbane’s iconic city hall. We’re proud to announce Architectus Conrad Gargett won a named award and three commendations across two categories.

In the Heritage Architecture Category, UQ Brisbane City by BVN with Architectus Conrad Gargett won the Don Roderick Award, while Catherine’s House was awarded a commendation. Both heritage projects were congratulated for their creative approach to retrofitting new program and function into strict heritage floor plans. Catherine’s House is now Queensland’s largest and most comprehensive perinatal mental health facility already transforming the lives of mothers, babies, and families. The project involved balancing the preservation of the building’s heritage with the integration of a Level Six mental health facility. UQ Brisbane City revitalised one of Brisbane’s most significant heritage buildings – the National Australia Bank, into a home for entrepreneurs and changemakers.

In the Public Architecture Category, Eromanga Natural History Museum and Redlands Satellite Hospital by Fulton Trotter Architects with Architectus Congrad Gargett both received a commendation. Eromanga is an enduring contribution to research and science in one of Australia’s most isolated regional communities, the concrete bunker frames the landscape while visitors look past the red rich soils to the fossils buried beneath. A world away, Redlands Satellite Hospital forms part of Queensland’s Satellite Hospital program, delivering seven hospitals aligned under guiding design principles.

Congratulations to our project teams for these remarkable contributions, and thank you to the jury for their recognition of the complex design challenges these projects have solved for their communities.
