RUNAWAY BAY PRIVATE RESIDENCE Guymer Bailey responded to the unique location of Runaway Bay in designing a waterfront family home overlooking the Broadwater, South Stradbroke Island, and Brisbane canal entrance. The house features a hollow two-story limestone masonry base over-sailed by a floating light-weight aluminium sheathed roof. The form of the house exhibits Guymer Bailey’s commitment to passive sustainable design. It entails the thermal mass of the thick limestone masonry and the shading and solar control provided by the inverted parasol roof and deeply recessed glass.

SINNAMON VILLAGE PRIVATE RESIDENCE Establishing a relationship with the Brisbane River was a key component of the design of the Jindalee Residence. A northern facing view to the river allowed for a design that takes full advantage of the local breezes, and natural light to selectively penetrate into the main living spaces of the home, while interacting with the view up and down the river. In order for this view to be experienced from all areas of the upper floor, a large void was placed in the centre of the home. Circulation spaces interact vertically and horizontally within this void, accentuating the connection with the view. Verandas on the north east side with large sliding doors allow for a strong connection between inside and outside and opens up the main living area to a semi outdoor space. Full height glazing and glazed balustrades open up and allow natural light to fill the front of the home.

THE GAP PRIVATE RESIDENCE This Brisbane residence is a home designed by architects with fervour and dedication for an architect and displays many creative architectural and creative principles that distinguish the credentials and reputation of Guymer Bailey. The design is driven by environmental sustainability principles, through the use of materials that have a long life cycle and are low maintenance. Wide, unlined eaves shade the glazed walls and protect openable windows. All the principal living spaces have large full-height windows linking the internal spaces with the external landscape to offer good cross ventilation. Clear-finished ironbark is used in both the flooring and decking, as well as the skirtings and door and window trims.


ST KILDA PRIVATE RESIDENCE An extension and renovation to a Californian Bungalow style home in the bayside suburb of St Kilda, has evolved into a captivating addition. The young family had recently settled in a quiet leafy avenue, tucked away from the hustle and bustle, came to us with some ideas for their ‘dream home’. The design would allow them to grow as a family, with large communal areas to entertain, focussed around the idea of the backyard, porch and pool being central to family living, but also providing for more intimate spaces for study and quiet time. A large central void that acts as a thermal chimney has been designed for natural ventilation and improved daylighting, among the many ESD features incorporated into the project. Water sensitive urban design treatment through raingardens, along with rainwater harvesting, PV cells and other initiatives have been a key factor in the design of this home for improved indoor environment quality, energy and water efficiency.

KENSINGTON PRIVATE RESIDENCE This proposal for additional living and working spaces for a growing family in an urban fringe Melbourne suburb included the re-activation of hard and soft landscape components. The existing house was in need of an increase in overall floor area, whilst improving the amenity and connection to the existing, and largely unused, pool and pool house. The east-west aspect allowed for opportunities to open up the existing openings for improved natural daylighting. Connections between the existing kitchen and the garden were through a proposed outdoor kitchen and courtyard area.

The Red Hill residence demonstrates how modern architecture can respect the traditional ‘Queenslander’ character of its neighbours. The home’s contemporary building form and architectural detailing applies a palette of materials used traditionally in residential design in Brisbane, yet satisfies the clients desire for a modern aesthetic. The main upper level comprises the kitchen, living and dining spaces which open to a large veranda area under a floating roof to take advantage of the excellent views over the Brisbane suburbs and west to Mt Coot-tha. The residence’s white rendered masonry walls are adorned with angled hardwood vertical battens for veranda railings and window screens, which re-create the layered look of traditional houses. The lower level of the house is painted a dark charcoal to create the appearance of a house floating above the site.

LIFECARE BUILDING The LifeCare building primarily houses the LifeCare organisation of Crossway Baptist Church. LifeCare offers subsidised and free services to the community. The building provides administration space to facilitate these services, and also includes suites for Counselling, meeting rooms for life coaching sessions and even a food bank. The upper level has been assigned to the Church Administration offices; this position facilitates good pedestrian links to the neighbouring car park and existing building beyond via a bridge. The LifeCare functions have been assigned to the lower level, offering a more discreet entry from the south, and more privacy to the counselling rooms. Environmentally sustainable design initiatives incorporated include configuration of building, orientation and glazing, high levels of insulation, solar hot water, excellent daylighting levels, fresh air cycles in ventilation systems, tailored mechanical systems to suit varied usage profiles (rather than one large centralised plant), rainwater harvesting and storage for reuse in toilet flushing.

SAMOAN INDEPENDENT SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH Situated along Redbanks Plains Road, Bellbird Park this development provides a new Church and Community /Sports Hall for the Samoan Independent Seventh Day Adventist Church. The building is fundamentally expressed as two separate elements, the Church Hall and the Sports Hall linked by a central two storey service and administration “wedge�. The compositions is unified with simple clean lines and a strong basic form. The Church Hall faces the main approach and presents a polite yet confident welcome towards the neighbourhood. This space can accommodate a seated congregation of three hundred and focuses on a proscenium stage and a baptismal pool. The Sports Hall provides a flexible timber floored space for a two volleyball courts or a competition size basketball court. It also doubles as a functions hall with a stage, kitchen and associated storage areas. Passive climate control has been an important consideration. Deep verandahs, large banks of adjustable louvres and sliding doors provide complete shading and promotes cross ventilation. This is supplemented with specialist reflective paint and appropriate roof insulation. Landscaping is an equally important aspect of this development and native planting gives shading, colour and soft relief to the elevations. Safe childrens play areas area an important focus. The objective has simultaneously been to provide a place for worship combined with recreational opportunities in the true community spirit.

MT ISA NEIGHBOURHOOD CENTRE The Mount Isa Neighbourhood Centre is a modern facility designed to accommodate the growing communities needs and activities. Guymer Bailey was commissioned to design the Centre to be versatile, flexible, functional and sustainable. Guymer Bailey were tasked with reviewing an original scheme that was designed and documented by BAS but not progressed due to budgetary constraints. We were to maintain all the functional elements of the design, while creating a sense of place and community. We worked closely with BAS, The Department of Communities and local user groups through regular skype meetings which were undertaken in short succession in the early stages. Design decisions were made collaboratively and the final design reflects a well thought out and considered building that relates to the local users and visitors. The facility was designed and constructed in a very compressed programme, all team members worked together in a “solutions driven� approach that maintained momentum and enthusiasm. With open communication, concerns were discussed and resolved within a timely manner. The client was kept fully informed during the process and the result is a building that was completed in 9 months. The building has several flexible spaces that allows the facility to cater for groups of varying sizes and uses. With operable walls, a strong connection to outside and the covered veranda, areas are able to expand when required. A spine or spacious corridor runs through the centre of the building, and allows for small meetings and break out areas to be used without booking meeting rooms and formal spaces. The Landscape design complements the building and has several covered areas that allow users to meet informally and enjoy the amenities of the outdoor spaces; such as the yarning circle, children’s play area, vegetable/kitchen garden and several shaded seated areas.

BRISBANE SUPREME & DISTRICT COURTS BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA The recent Brisbane Supreme and District Courts completes an entire city block creating a legal precinct comprising the existing Magistrates Courts and a new public square with shade trees and a cafe. Guymer Bailey assisted Architectus to design and document this significant building, contributing their experience in the design of Court & Secure Environments. The new courts building comprise 64,000 square metres of floor space over 17 floors. The $600 million building is one of the largest court buildings in Australia and is designed to suit the Department of Justice and the Attorney General’s needs for the foreseeable future. Guymer Bailey Landscape worked in association with AECOM’s landscape team on the landscaping of the streetscape, square and various decks of the building’s levels Internal and external gardens and courtyards throughout the building are important design elements reflecting the subtropical character of the building.


CALOUNDRA COURTHOUSE AND WATCH HOUSE The Caloundra Courthouse and Watch House complex has become a landmark public building within the regional hub of Caloundra being prominently located in view from the Caloundra Road, the main entry into Caloundra from the Bruce Highway. Guymer Bailey was approached by the Department of Justice and the Attorney General (DJAG) to design a regional courthouse complex. The completed project demonstrates Guymer Bailey’s skill in creating a building that has an appropriate civic presence in a relaxed tropical Queensland coastal style. The building features large roof overhangs and a variety of sun shading devices to the expansive areas of glazing, which fill the interiors with natural light. The Courthouse consists of the Magistrates Courts and chambers, mediation facilities, registry counters, and spacious public waiting areas well connected to the external landscaped surroundings. The Watch House is a secure building containing cells, holding cells, search rooms, secure officer control areas, and amenities. A feature of the design is the direct connection between the Watch House and the courts, not often achieved in new courthouse developments. Accessibility to and transparency of the justice system is an important philosophy apparent in DJAG’s contemporary justice projects. Guymer Bailey has achieved this by the prominent welcoming entry and the open, light and airy spaciousness of the reception, waiting areas and courtrooms. Contrasted against the accessibility of the Courthouse is the internalised nature of the Watch House, turning inwards from the public both physically and visually Guymer Bailey’s preoccupation with environmentally sustainable architecture is evident everywhere in the building form, choice of materials and detailing. The roof falls to a central box gutter, which discharges onto a kinetic, built-in artwork, symbolising the “Arrow of Justice”. This is a large, pivoting shard which collects the discharged roof rainwater and, when full, gravity spectacularly tips the arrow dumping the water into a collection pond from which it is pumped to storage in tanks and recycled.


PINE RIVERS COURTHOUSE AND WATCH HOUSE Following soon after successful completing the Caloundra Courthouse, Guymer Bailey was requested by the Department of Justice and the Attorney General (DJAG) through Project Services to design another courthouse and watch house project on a challenging site in Strathpine. The site is in the commercial hub of Strathpine between two developed commercial enterprises. The existing storm water canal running from back of the site to the Gympie Road frontage influenced the site planning and motivated Guymer Bailey’s decision to partially cover the canal by a podium two metres above street level. We consequently created an entry promenade that served to conceal basement parking. In developing DJAG’s model of transparency, legibility and openness in justice facilities, Guymer Bailey used open planning, favourable views and natural light to convey an ethos of honesty and integrity. The Courthouse consists of two naturally-lit Magistrates Courts, associated chambers, supporting office areas, mediation facilities, registry counters and an open foyer space spilling out onto the external main entry podium. The secure environment of the watch house contains holding facilities, search rooms, and interview rooms with a strong emphasis on daylight for the amenity of the officers who occupy the facility each day. The complex incorporates environmentally sustainable features including solar water heating, dual plumbing for the use of grey-water collected from the site, and screened manipulation of natural light throughout the building. The building was deliberately set well back from the intensity of Gympie Road creating a spacious entry promenade and public space in the commercial hub of Strathpine.

MALMSBURY YOUTH JUSTICE CENTRE Malmsbury Youth Justice Centre is a 45 bed Secure facility built alongside the existing Senior Youth Justice Facility in Malmsbury, north of Melbourne. Aside from sharing some administration functions and being served by the existing kitchen, the facility is self contained. The centre is surrounded by a secure fence, with controlled access. The accommodation has been split across three buildings, and each building can be subdivided for further flexibility. Each includes indoor and outdoor areas for communal activities ranging from meals to learning to basketball. An education building and a gymnasium provide on site dedicated facilities for learning and recreation. Finally the Administration building serves as gateway and exit to the centre. A visits wing allows family and friends to safely visit the residents, and a medical wing allows for various on-site treatments. Once in operation the facility will extend the services currently offered in DHHS’s Parkville campus.


DAME PHYLLIS FROST CENTRE Guymer Bailey was the architect for the Dame Phyllis Frost Centre (DPFC, formerly Metropolitan Women’s Correctional Centre) at Deer Park, completed in 1995. The centre was the first of Victoria’s Public Private Partnership prisons. Guymer Bailey designed two significant extensions and upgrade projects subsequent to the initial project. The first in 2001 was in joint venture with SKM. These works included a new 50-bed, multi-purpose cellular, accommodation (including Victoria’s first Cell and Fire Safety Guidelines compliant cell design), as well as security enhancements and enlargements to the existing Gatehouse. For the second assignment in 2007, Guymer Bailey designed Better Pathways, a project which included: a new programs building; a new 20-bed flexible intensive support unit to accommodate and provide special care to women with mental health care needs; significant expansions to the existing medical building; doubling the size of the existing education building; creating a much larger and more welcoming visits centre, including an all-seasons external visits area; a new enlarged and dedicated multi-faith chapel facility; industry buildings to assist in skills development to support the project’s “structured day” focus; and redeveloping the central town square as a more interactive communal space. As these construction works all occurred within the existing operating facility, they required careful and detailed programming, and close liaison with prison operations and construction personnel. Guymer Bailey relished the challenges and complexities of the Better Pathways Project, and most importantly the positive impact the project has had on the daily lives of staff and prisoners at DPFC.


BRISBANE IMMIGRATION TRANSIT ACCOMMODATION CENTRE After winning a limited design competition for an Immigration Detention Centre at Pinkenba, Guymer Bailey, in association with Peter Hunt Architects, was invited to design the first Immigration transit accommodation in Australia: a new immigration concept introduced by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). We were mindful of DIAC’s concern to change the image of their facilities to a softer, more human approach in line with a transformation in public perception. The result, the Brisbane Immigration Transit Accommodation (BITA) is a low security centre designed to provide “motel style” short-term accommodation to persons with minor immigration and visa breaches. Guymer Bailey’s challenge was to deliver the facility on a low-lying flood-prone site within a stringent budget and short time frame. The accommodation was also required to meet exacting acoustic design parameters eliminating both external aircraft noise and inter-room separation. BITA provides 30 beds in double rooms with some rooms being inter-leading pairs able to accommodate families and extended families. Each unit has its own living area, with lounge, dining, kitchenette and laundry facilities, allowing for discrete cultural separation. Facilities for people with disabilities are also provided. The central building houses two zones: the first, a central kitchen, laundry, dining and lounge with Internet and recreational facilities for the clients, while the second provides administrative functions such as reception, visiting, security control, administrative offices, immigration processing and medical facilities.


BRISBANE CHILDRENS COURT In 2010, Guymer Bailey was commissioned by the Department of Communities to design the refurbishment and upgrade of the existing 20 year old Brisbane Children’s Court. This commission was opportune for Ralph Bailey because he had originally designed the Children’s Court during his time at Project Services. The commission resulted from our 2010 feasibility study on the expansion opportunities for the building. Being impressed by the strength of our findings, Project Services asked Guymer Bailey to complete the design and documentation for tender and construction. Our brief entailed a range of upgrade and code compliance works: a new public passenger lift, and security room; refurbishment and additional shelter to the external courtyard spaces; and the complete refurbishment of public spaces, toilets the public reception. We also designed the reconfigured lower ground and the administration areas. The kitchens were refurbished through two significant innovations: first, we replaced the glazed facade to Coronation Drive meet new heat and thermal standards and second, we improved the acoustics by reducing traffic noise from Coronation Drive. The roof was resurfaced and a large water storage tank was included to harvest rainwater. The external skin of the building was also repaired and repainted with high quality durable products. Delivery of the project required regular collaboration with the client and the construction team to minimise disturbance to the Courts by the construction works; the project was therefore delivered over several stages. Guymer Bailey gave the Children’s Court a distinctive design feature by using the steep site of its setting to provide discrete and separate access for juveniles in custody to enter off Coronation Drive. On the other hand, the Magistrates and Court staff enter via an underground car park off Quay Street while the public enter through a portcochère and courtyard off Quay Street.

CORELLA PLACE After previously undertaken upgrade and expansion projects at the Ararat Prison, Guymer Bailey was pleased to win the tender to design Corella Place, a 40-bed transitional facility collocated with the Ararat Prison, and accommodating residents in 1, 2, and 3-bed accommodation units. A significant feature of Guymer Bailey’s design is the central recreation area that provides passive and active recreation opportunities, and a highly flexible administration area optimising staff amenity and safety.

READER’S FEAST BOOKSTORE In July 2011, Mary Dalmau approached Guymer Bailey Architects to assist in the reopening of her iconic Melbourne bookstore, Reader’s Feast. After inspecting more than twenty properties in the CBD of Melbourne, Mary chose the former Georges Department Store, a building from the 1880’s that, after several refits in the 1990’s, boasted both original features (columns, large windows) and new design elements (elevated glass void). An important part of the brief was to reuse or re-purpose as much furniture from the existing store as possible. With this in mind, Mary’s brother Rick, of Dalmau Designs Pty Ltd, designed a unique, mobile shelving unit which responded to the project’s constraints. These were manufactured and supplied in collaboration with Guymer Bailey Architects and provided the new space with added flexibility.

CHARTERS TOWERS TOYOTA The design for the Charters Towers Toyota Showroom draws inspiration from the town’s heritage in referencing the distinctive forms and materials of the industrial and mining structures that dominate the town’s urban character. The Toyota Showroom is located on a key intersection upon arrival in Charters Towers and takes advantage of the site’s dual frontage to maximise its street presence. Its design layout accommodates the multi-franchise nature of the regional dealership by providing access from each street and by adopting a flexible layout that can be modified to suit future needs. The Showroom building houses a large 20 bay, naturally lit and ventilated service centre, which employs a ridge ventilation system, synonymous with the aesthetics and function of the town’s industrial buildings. The layout includes express bays and a drive-through that improves the efficiency of the service centre’s building footprint. The success of the project can be closely attributed to the close collaboration of the team with a brilliant and creative Client, Toyota, and the Charters Towers Regional Council.


MIKE CARNEY TOYOTA & LEXUS SHOWROOMS The design of the new Mike Carney Toyota and Lexus showroom represents a contemporary approach to customer service. Through integration of the service and sales interface through customer lounges and vehicle delivery, the centre creates an inviting and relaxed atmosphere, and represents the qualities of the Toyota and Lexus brands. During the showrooms long history in the Townsville location, the surrounding context has changed from open fields, to a busy commercial district, with numerous brands competing for attention. The showrooms have been designed to provide the feel of high end shopfront, through large expanses of glazing, and feature display windows addressing the street front. The Lexus and Toyota brands are given distinct identities, while the buildings overall form provides a cohesive whole. The challenge environmentally was to balance the desire for maximum transparency and vision into the showroom, with the facade’s orientation to the western afternoon sun. A mixture of large overhangs, screening, and glazing type successfully reduced the impact of the afternoon sun. The large volumes of the interior also allow for natural convection to occur in the space, and maximise natural light. The team worked extensively with the Toyota and Lexus corporate group, to deliver a design and feel that was in line with the overall brand identity, and would like to acknowledge the work of the onsite team and builder in delivering a high quality showroom that contributes positively to strength of the Mike Carney Toyota and Lexus brand in Townsville.


KIMBERLEY COLLEGE Guymer Bailey’s masterplan and classroom designs for Kimberley College’s new school campus employs sustainability principles to create a stimulating learning environment with minimal ecological impact. Guymer Bailey was commissioned to develop the masterplan for new classroom design in keeping with the school’s unique teaching ethos. Because the college needed to relocate within a short timeframe, Guymer Bailey worked closely with Kimberley College and AUSCO Building Solutions on a modular classroom design for efficient and timely construction. A series of double classrooms was arranged to follow the natural contours of the site by following passive environmental design principles. The double classroom is designed for the Queensland climate: large overhangs for sun control; louvred windows positioned for maximum cross ventilation; and polycarbonate wall cladding for natural light to internal teaching spaces. The classrooms were constructed in three-metre wide modules for ease of transportation, after which the modules were combined to form non-rectangular spaces. Apart from their ease of construction, Guymer Bailey developed this design to improve teacher/class dynamics not as likely in the older style of traditional rectangular layouts. Two classrooms can be combined to allow classes to be conducted together, separately, or on the large outdoor teaching veranda. The roof form is a simple butterfly skillion that directs rainwater into a central gutter to feed rainwater tanks. Guymer Bailey has continued to work with Kimberley College on developing further stages of the masterplan.

KIMBERLEY COLLEGE LEARNING AREAS The Kimberyley College Learning Areas project brief included four flexible double learning areas, associated teachers’ offices, small group rooms, a toilet block, storage areas and ancillary work rooms. Much of the Kimberley College site is natural bushland and the location of the new building required selective clearing to provide the best location in accordance with the Masterplan. The design of the building and management of the site during and post construction, respond to the sensitive site issues which include site access and buildability. Careful attention was paid to environmental and sustainable design issues in the integration of architecture and landscape. A simple yet unique undulating skillion roof strikes a mountain-scape against the tree line beyond. Once at the top of the entry ramp, the magic of the spaces are revealed as a landscape within a landscape. The large expanses of veranda space not only link the classroom blocks, but they also provide spaces for gathering and valuable external teaching areas in keeping with the schools ‘slightly alternative’ philosophies. This philosophy continues into the wider landscape with a collection of spaces for varied teaching and social activities. Some environmental and social initiatives worth noting are locally sourced materials where possible, rain water harvesting, on-site sewer treatment, good passive design, high performance glazing, inclusion of a weather station and BMS and zoned energy efficient lighting with movement sensor operation.


KIMBERLEY COLLEGE LIBRARY AND ART ROOMS Following on from the successful Year 7 Flying Start project, completed for school start in 2015, Guymer Bailey Architects was commissioned to design a number buildings including a 100 student Primary classrooms and play area, double classroom art facility and library with 72 seat auditorium With usable land fast running out at the school, the location for the Primary school was chosen close to the drop-off point to allow easy access for the ‘little ones’. The school, whilst only being two double classrooms with associated spaces, needed an identity and this came in the form of a large, semi transparent ‘tree-like’ floating roof that spans between the two buildings, providing shelter to the play area below. A large Eucalypt ,in poor health, had to be removed from the site, so it was fitting to honour it with a contemporary and functional interpretation. Six supporting posts connect to radiating structure which might be compare with branches, generate a varied triangular patination. This set up a playful theme, with triangular finishes chosen for the remainder of the spaces. The proposed master plan for the school is based around a new spine from the existing administration building reaching out into the neighbouring treed area. The spine will ultimately be home to a future administration building (with drama, music and a gymnasium) and the Library and Art buildings that formed part of this scope. Similar undulating roofs forms and material palette are incorporated to link these buildings to the Year 7 building as well as articulation in plan to capture areas of landscape, providing alternative options for outdoor teaching. The primary spaces of the library include the main library, auditorium and ancillary support spaces. Spaces linking inside and out, and connection to landscape is followed throughout the design. The Art building incorporates wet and dry teaching areas, a computer lab for various forms of graphic design and support spaces. This building also opens onto the large covered area and landscape. Other areas to mention are the ‘Chill spot’ and kiln which bookend the covered courtyard formed between the Library and Art buildings. The Chill spot, being an area for student relaxation and interaction is a free-formed terraced seating area, with internal walls designed as a blank canvass for the art department each year. Ironically, the kiln is a minimalist box clad in burnt timber.


KINGFISHER BAY INTERPRETIVE AND RESEARCH CENTRE Expanding our work at Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island, this Interpretive and Research Centre will become a flagship for the University of Sunshine coast facilitating their commitment to research into the environment, and sustainability. The main focus of the Centre was to display state of the art technology in sustainability through an interpretive space. The building incorporates new thinking in passive climate control features so that the building itself becomes part of the interpretive display. The structure of hardwood and steel continues the tradition of Kingfisher Bay resort, in being completely demountable, and if dismantled it would leave the site relatively undisturbed. Features such as a display on the production of biodiesel from the resorts kitchen waste, the use of passive thermal mass in the building via water storage, and circulation through the slab with water sourced from an existing spring, are some of the exciting features of the building. A laboratory and support spaces for the University’s nature studies which are currently undertaken on the Island and an auditorium and gift shop from part of the Centre. Located between the main resort building and the various shops and support facilities, the Centre provides a pedestrian link that allows pedestrian access through the facility enabling viewing of the displays outside of opening hours.


CALOUNDRA CHRISTIAN COLLEGE Guymer Bailey is proud to be a part of a long standing relationship with Caloundra Christian College being involved with several stages of refurbishment and providing new buildings on the campus. Guymer Bailey initially developed a masterplan for the redevelopment of the campus into the future. The first stage was the design and construction of an early child hood precinct at the entry to the school, which included child preparation and preschool areas, and classrooms for years 1 to 3. Following stages included the second stage of the early learning centre, a new toilet block, the fitting out of existing classrooms as laboratories and workshops, a large multisport covered court, tuckshop refurbishment, covered outdoor seating areas, classroom refurbishments, including an outdoor classroom, and further laboratory extensions and refurbishments, and covered walkways. In all the master planned redevelopment Guymer Bailey has integrated the new buildings into the existing fabric of the campus, but we have also augmented the character of the campus by the introduction of environmentally appropriate design features, such as the extensive shaded walkways and outdoor lunch and recreation areas, timber battened shade screens, and the use of vibrant colours and materials. More recently Guymer Bailey have worked with the College to develop a 3 storey classroom block, and design a new tuckshop building, physical education classroom and office, and extensions to their hospitality facilities. Close communication and contact with the client has been the key to the success of each of the project stages, and Guymer Bailey expects to continue this relationship with the College into future projects.


CALOUNDRA CHRISTIAN COLLEGE LIBRARY Guymer Bailey Architects has a valued association with Caloundra Christian College (CCC), which spans more than 10 years. The association began with the master planning of the existing site and the goal of transforming the campus identity. The library is the latest of these projects, and a key feature in CCC’s transformation. In line with Guymer Bailey’s sustainability ethos, the library was designed to ensure the building responds to the site context in both orientation and materials. Its distinctive external entrance attracts library visitors and offers them a social meeting space. Integral to this entrance is the strong form of the folding roof, created to allow natural sunlight into the space, protecting the occupants from the western sun, and to facilitate collection of rainwater for reuse. The innovative library facilitates a new-generation of learning strategies to CCC staff and pupils with a mix of technological and traditional teaching environments. A major feature of the building design is its 75-seat auditorium which is tiered to follow the site’s sloping topography. The auditorium provides a valuable new asset to the many users from CCC and the local community. The design incorporates many elements that enhance the internal spatial volumes, adding variety and interest. Formed concrete voids link the lower and upper floors, and coloured glass louvres and multi-coloured furnishings contribute to the vibrancy of the spaces. The library has a relaxed, user friendly feel and is fully accessible to all users including those in wheelchairs, and those with visibility and hearing impairments. The collaboration of client, architects and contractors epitomises the success of the Building the Education Revolution program that supported the library’s construction.

NORTH SHORE COMMUNITY CENTRE The North Shore Community Centre is a modern facility at Mudjimba designed for community activities. Guymer Bailey was asked by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council to design a Centre supporting its ‘Placemaking’ policy, as well as its desire for an ecologically sustainable facility Guymer Bailey Architects and Guymer Bailey Landscape designed the centre to stand out from the surrounding sports fields using ecologically sustainable features. For example, three prominent thermal chimneys set into a folding roofline provide natural ventilation; and while glazed main entrances welcome natural light into the internal foyer. Also distinctive is an access pathway that combines with the internal/central foyer to form the spine of the building and connect it to outdoor community spaces. This feature physically separates the building’s functional spaces into halves: the northern side features a hall and catering facilities and the southern side includes office and ancillary spaces. Initiatives for ecological sustainability draw on both passive design ideals and active systems like solar and other energysaving means and water-sensitive urban design features. A building management system connects to an onsite weather station with numerous meters monitoring power and water use. Production and usage data is transmitted to the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and displayed internally to visitors to exemplify the sustainable energy applications.

MAROOCHY BOTANIC ARTS & ECOLOGY CENTRE The Maroochy Botanic Gardens Arts and Ecology Centre displays a proud collaboration of Guymer Bailey Architects and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council. The Centre was conceived as a public facility to inspire current and future generations of residents to expand their knowledge of the environment and sustainable living. The Centre offers a unique place for community members to meet, share in education, and enjoy artistic exhibitions. The building is designed to present itself to the public as an ecologically sustainable model. The layout provides flexible and adaptable spaces able to be used for exhibitions, interactive workshops, and a resource centre and office for the volunteers that assist the Council to manage and maintain the gardens. The Centre is sited on a previously cleared section of the Botanic Gardens adjacent the existing carpark to minimise ecological disturbance. The design employs simple structures using raw and durable materials including blockwork, steel, high durability timber, and plywood cladding in protected areas. The building is merged with its immediate landscaped surroundings and into the greater landscape of the gardens by the use of materials and the flow of internal spaces into the courtyards. These landscape features in turn merge into the gardens by natural walls and planting. The site showcases sustainable initiatives by mixing both passive design and active systems allowing visitors to witness efficient solar, air and water use in action. An 8.2 kW solar installation significantly reduces the Centre’s energy consumption. All systems are electronically monitored and data stored on an energy management computer. LCD screens display the data as evidence to visitors of ecological sustainability in practice.


LAKE KAWANA COMMUNITY AND ARTS CENTRE The Lake Kawana Community and Arts Centre is located prominently on the eastern shoreline of Lake Kawana at Caloundra. The location affords water views on three sides and a high level of visibility from the Nicklin Way arterial route through the developing areas that surround the Lake. Following on from the detailed masterplan stage (a team which also included Lensworth and Caloundra City Council), Guymer Bailey was commissioned to undertake the detailed design and documentation of the Centre. The architectural style is simple and is steeped in the “Sunshine Coast vernacular” evolved over time by a number of local renowned architects. The Community and Arts Centre displays a design of concrete and blockwork masonry with a light steel superstructure sheathed with pre-coloured corrugated steel sheet and translucent polycarbonate sheet roofing and cladding. Large overhangs and extensive canopies provide shade and shelter conducive with Queensland’s tropical coastal climate. A significant design feature from Guymer Bailey is the 1000-seat main hall that is capable of being separated by acoustic folding doors into two or three smaller halls offering individual activities or performances to occur simultaneously. Stages that can open out for outdoor performances on grass amphitheatres are situated at each end of the main hall. The halls are supplemented by a Senior Citizens and other support areas, a kitchen and bar, toilet facilities, and storage. The larger hall and principle function rooms open to landscaped courtyards permitting outdoor functions. A three-storey wing comprising community offices, and flexible meeting and function rooms are accessible by lift and stairs from the main entry foyer. Native plant species in landscaped gardens soften the site’s car parks and merge the complex with the promontory and its water surrounds. Lake Kawana was employed as a “heat sink” for the air conditioning, negating the need for cooling towers. Stormwater harvesting and recycling provide for irrigation and for toilet flushing. Translucent sheet clad thermal chimneys over the storage and back-of-house circulation areas provide natural lighting and ventilation.

GOLD COAST CULTURAL PRECINCT COMPETITION Guymer Bailey Architects formed a design collaborative alongside Kahrtel and Peter Hunt Architect for the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct competition. This design competition saw 75 teams worldwide submit designs in response to a Vision to establish a landmark cultural precinct at Evandale, on the Gold Coast. Our response was based on the cultural axis forming the centre of the Great Terrace and physically aligning east to west juxtaposing the Gold Coast’s north tosouth linear movement. It promotes views across Evandale Lake and the Artscape to the Gold Coast skyline beyond. The Great Terrace marks arrival to the GCCP from multiple site access points and for various modes of transport. It marks the centre of activity and is the organisational space that addresses the core components of the Precinct. It is flexible space to accommodate the highest levels of social and cultural exchange. The Great Hall and Drama Theatre bookend the Great Terrace at the lakeside to take advantage of skyline views. The Artscape is arranged and ordered around principles of connectivity and legibility. Fluid pathways guide movement and connect a series of spaces. These spaces balance passive and active recreation. Patterns in the landscape are organisational attributes that define the spaces and how they are used.

KINGFISHER BAY RESORT AND VILLAGE Kingfisher Bay Resort is surrounded by National Park on World Heritage listed Fraser Island. Our key challenge was to design the resort in harmony with the site without impacting on the environment. Our strategy was to employ a lightweight building system using materials that could be brought by barge from the mainland. The buildings are no higher that two storeys and constructed of hardwood framing, hardwood weatherboard walls and corrugated steel roofing supported on driven hardwood piles. Therefore merging with the environment rather than dominating it. The curved roof profiles correspond to the rolling treed sand dunes while the pools represent the natural lakes on the island. The design, whereby indoor and outdoor spaces flow seamlessly into each other, epitomises Guymer Bailey’s philosophy of integrating architecture and landscape. Sustainability is demonstrated by the insightful decision to choose thermo-symphonic natural “air conditioning” for the Main Hotel building, rather than traditional mechanical varieties. Such a facility complements the Resort’s coastal, tropical environment. The Hotel has 152 rooms on two levels arranged into two arc-shaped wings. Numerous private villas and freehold housing blocks nestle into the dunes surrounding the main hotel. A shopping village, beach bar, backpacker’s hostel and tennis courts surround the hotel.

MACPHERSON TRUST In October 2011 Guymer Bailey Architects was approached by Andrew Brookes – the Chief Executive of the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust – to assist them in finding a new home. With the clock running down to the end of their existing lease, a handful of possible buildings and tenancies were examined by GBA for the Trust. HMST successfully purchased a former RSL in the Melbourne CBD and settled in mid-December. The challenge then began to design, tender and administer the project to occupancy by early March 2012. The task was to completely replan the building to suit the needs of HMST with respect to the historic character of the building. Working closely with the client, a solution was evolved that overcame all of the technical challenges such as services distribution, DDA compliance etc. The GBA response was a calm, yet vibrant interior to match the character of the not-for-profit organisation. The result is a fully refurbished office environment over three floors within an historic building in one of Melbourne’s dynamic laneways. New furniture was selected to enhance the light and airy feel of the spaces. HMST’s extensive collection of indigenous artwork was also carefully positioned throughout the interior by the GBA designers. Individual touches such as custom designed cabinetry with a marble bench, the vibrant geometric wallpaper in the boardroom provide ‘hidden gems’ to surprise and delight visitors to the Trust offices.

OPPOSITE LOCK 4WD RETAIL AND SHOWROOM The Opposite Lock brand is well known in the 4WD industry; therefore, providing Guymer Bailey with an exciting architectural opportunity to create a showroom to promote the brand and exhibit the Opposite Lock equipment. Competition to stand out against motor dealerships and a homemaker centre lead to the creation of a simple, strong building form with a sense of adventure. Characterised by an angular folded roof and a rugged outdoors focus the building typifies the 4WD experience. Profiled metal roof sheeting with a deep pan was wrapped over the building to maintain this rugged character, while the soffit of plywood accentuates the folded nature of the roof and introduces warmth to the retail space. For the comfort of those inside the showroom, a large overhang to the northwest elevation, insulation, and the selection of thermally efficient glazing helps to reduce the heat of the afternoon sun, while allowing visitors clear views from the street to the showroom. Other environmental features include the collection and distribution of rainwater for reuse for toilet flushing and vehicle wash-down. To further accentuate the angular nature of the form, and its easy relation to the landscape, visual lines over the roof plane have been added to mimic the tracks left by the 4WDs. Another creative idea used to enhance the design involves a large Danpalon display screen to the front elevation that portrays a folded map that usually typifies adventure planning. This screen, which receives the western sun, allows filtered light to enter the building, while also introducing colour and vibrancy into the retail space. The Opposite Lock project proved to be rewarding for the trusting innovative client, and to the Guymer Bailey team that remained true to the “conceptual idea� throughout the project.

GRAND IDEAS SALVAGE EMPORIUM The Grand Ideas Salvage Emporium showcases the business’s creative and eclectic approach to recycling salvaged items and materials. The collaborative design process between architect and client reimagines a suburban house as a new retail showroom and café, owner’s residence above, and workshop with storage area at the rear of the property. The showroom’s architecture showcases a range of inventive details, screens and cladding constructed from recycled materials such as, gantry conveyor rails, pressed metal screens, and old storage boxes. Even the shipping container used for the café highlights the range of recycling possibilities to customers while activating Grand Ideas’ industrial street frontage. Our team worked closely with the client, whose creative input as owner and builder has been fundamental to the project’s success in realising the business’s ethos “to take the concept of recycling to a whole new level”.
