Brisbane City Hall, the city's most notable example of a classic revival building, is a significant national heritage structure. Brisbane City Council appointed GHD and Tanner Architects to undertake a restoration of the building, to continue to provide strong cultural connectivity to the people of Brisbane for future generations.
Tanner Architects brought heritage and institutional building design experience to the project, which complemented our Brisbane-based multi-disciplined design management skills. Both firms had significant design input, with GHDWoodhead providing particular emphasis on interior design, including space planning, design of joinery, bespoke carpets, colour schemes, finishes selections, wet areas, window treatments, co-ordination of services with design elements and furniture selections.
The original building fabric of Brisbane City Hall remains largely unaltered. The core of the restoration work was to carry out an internal re-fit in the context of heritage, environmental sustainability and internal building constraints.
