ELIA Brisbane combines the efficiencies of contemporary architectural science with the values of the cultural identity. Vast experience, a focus on personal attention and in depth research, allows ELIA Brisbane to design spaces that reflect local cultural heritage, while fulfilling the needs of the client.
Having reached the end of the project at 158 James Street, I’d like to express my thanks to you both, i.e. Scott at Urbis, and all at ELIA, for your efforts on our behalf. We are very happy to get the end of it all and we believe that we have achieved a very satisfactory blending of the Heritage values and the new facility. We think the outcome will be functionally effective, as well as ascetically pleasing. This of course is a tribute to the concept and designing, as well and the management of the project by Lester and his team who we congratulate wholeheartedly. And of course Scott, your patient and informed management of our expectations in the context of the mostly inflexible requirements of the Heritage Council, as well as your professional engagement of the Department staff on our behalf.
The Australian Institute of Architects recently held their annual Architecture Awards, showcasing architectural talent from around Australia.
For our division (West Moreton), we were pleased to receive 3 honourable mentions for our work: Highfields Sports Park Stage 2 Clubhouse; Catholic Schools Office; and Hill House.
Additionally, we developed the preliminary concepts for the regional project of the year (Toowoomba City Hall – Auditorium and Annex, by Sims White) and we provided document review services for another honourable mention (The Goods Shed, by Sims White).
We would like to congratulate Sims White Architects for their outstanding achievement!
It is great to see the many creative designs from our fellow regional architects. The Award presentation livestream can be watched here: https://youtu.be/j1hIdmcOJL0
