THIS AREA HAS BEEN DESIGNED TAKING OPTIMAL ADVANTAGE OF THE SCENIC SPOT AND IT’S PROXIMITY TO QUEENS STREET. OCCUPANTS CAN ENJOY PLEASANT VIEWS, OPTIMAL LIGHTING (SKYLIGHT ABOVE LOCATED ON OUTDOOR TERRACE) AND CLOSE PROXIMITY TO CAFES AND QUEEN STREET COMMERCIAL PRECINCT.

SKYLIGHT AND INTERNAL VOID The void and central skylight seeks to carry light deep into the structure. Allowing optimal amount of light into the building aligns with the design intentions of ‘blurring’ thresholds between internal and external spaces - offerring similar spatial qualities to the outside. Additionally, the inclusion of these design features fosters a desired space to occupy - complimented by an array of brickwork, timber and concrete seating and loose function space furniture. Occupants can experience views onto Queen Street to the East and back onto the central courtyard to the West.


The Cultural Hub Precinct will act as a central node for a ‘Cultural Network’ throughout Nambour. The urban Insertion in the abandonned Queen Street carpark aims to attract pedestrians through the area and foster walkability through the town. The location of the Cultural Precinct ‘funnels’ pedestrians from surrounding laneways into the site - encouraging interaction. This urban insertion will connect with the revitalised Tram Network along Howard Street to pave a ‘Cultural Spine’ throughout the centre of Nambour.

CENTRAL COURTYARD


The Cultural Precinct itself, will provide artists, performers, vendors and committee members with functional spaces and outdoor areas to connect and operate with one another. The form of the cultural building and the site aims to connect to Queen Street at all points of the site. The cultural building is designed to allow for ventilation, shading and street connection - responding to the characteristics of the site. The Southern end of the site includes an event and performance space - with an elevated stage area, terraced seating and several market shipping containers to encourage local producers and craftsmans to encourage community contribution.

EVENT & MARKET PLACE

TYPICAL PLANTER AND DRAINAGE DETAIL 1:10 @A1 A large portion of the site has been allocated to a large open multi-purpose terrace space that allows for events, performances, markets and projections. This large open space has been loosely prescribed to allow for many possible events. Namely, Nambour’s Tramfest which is currently located in Lowe Street. Lowe Street is currently pedestrianised on nights of the Tramfest. The new carpark regeneration allows for the community of Nambour to maintain a sense of permenance and regularity regarding these communal activities. The market space invites interest from out of town users whom might make and sell goods or come to buy goods. Local artists, venders and craftsman can rent spaces in the shipping containers to market their goods.

DESIGN PROCESS APPROACH Precendence was adapted from historic architectural ideals forumlated around central access points at the intersection of various directional paths of travel. The site has 2 distinct axis points via Goerge Street and Margaret Street. These axis points will be maintained when future projects are completeted in the immediate context of the site. The Collision of these axis points remains at the corner of Alice and William Streets. This initial site analysis was imperative to the design process as it informed the orientation of the building (extending in 2 directions - the Botanic Gardens and Brisbane Square. DESIGN DRIVERS

BUILDABLE AREA

MULTIPLE ACCESS POINTS

At the core of the re-invignoration of democracy lies education. It was therefore fundamental to the design that the building was accessible to a range of demographics. The proximity of insititutions such as Queensland University of Technology and Parliament House served a purpose in the building’s frontages. The design extends South East as a literal ‘gesture’ to the University and members of Parliament, this serves to add an inclusive quality to the design.

DESIGN PROCESS

URBAN CONTEXT

THE OPTIMAL EXPOSURE OF THE SITE TO ESTABLISHMENTS OF VARIOUS DIFFERENT NATURES, EXPOSES 40 GEORGE STREET TO A MYRIAD OF VAST MATERIALS AND TEXTURES UNIQUE TO BRISBANE’S HISTORY AND FUTURE CONTEXTS. THIS CONCEPT HAS DEVELOPED AS A FOREFRONTAL FOCUS OF THE DESIGN. THE PROPOSED HALL OF DEMOCRACY SEEKS TO NOT ONLY EMPLOY VARIOUS TEXTURAL ELEMENTS OF THE URBAN CONTEXT BUT SEAMLESSLY AND INTELLIGENTLY RESPOND TO BRISBANE’S FUTURE PROPOSALS. THE DESIGN ENCAPSULATES THE ESSENCE OF BLENDING “OLD AND NEW” - THROUGH THE MARRIAGE OF BRICK AND MODERN GLAZING SYSTEMS. THE CORE OF THE FACILITY WILL BE RENDERED IN A NATURAL AGED BRICK TO COMPLIMENT THE EXISTING URBAN CONTEXT OF THE SITE. THE PREDOMINANTLY TRANSPARENT EXTERIOR FACADE OF THE BUILDING WILL EMPLOY FACETED GLAZING.
