Caboolture Hub, a regional centre for art, culture and learning designed by Peddle Thorp + James Cubitt Architects, has received the FDF Stanley Award for Public Architecture at the Australian Institute of Architects’ Queensland Architecture Awards.



“The planning is legible yet fluid, the building connects multiply to the city, and the spaces facilitate both defined and adaptive uses,” said the jury of the facility, which spans 5000sqm of floor space and comprises a library, art gallery, learning centre and café.

Owen and Vokes took away the Robin Dods Award for Residential Architecture (Houses) for Four-Room Cottage, a “small but richly layered house”.

Arkhefield and Cardno S.P.L.A.T. took out the Beatrice Hutton Award for Commercial Architecture and the Karl Langer Award for Urban Design in recognition of their River Quay development.


The jury described the precinct as “a multivalent experience – ranging from a concave grassed and terraced amphitheatre park to 3 restaurants interconnected but different, covertly engaging the river edge, the others overtly embracing the public promenade but all seducing patronage to the space internal and external.”

The GHM Addison Award for Interior Architecture went to the Eatons Hotel and Function Centre designed by KP Architects, described by the jury as a “wonderful translation of sophisticated design which attracts an extremely wide demographic.”
