GCCC Cultural Precinct QLD
Our proposal for this cultural heart of the Gold Coast was placed third in a national design competition. The scheme proposed to re-invent the existing council facilities at Bundall on the Nerang River.
Our philosophy was based around broader opportunity for the community to Signal, Gather and Connect, and related to traditional uses and activities in this area. Along with providing the council, cultural and public functions required in the brief, we saw this as an opportunity to expand beyond the site. In doing so, we sought to connect the districts of the greater Gold Coast by means of our modern signal fires, or beacons, and to communicate the invitation to a tribal gathering – a community celebration. The abstracted elements of signals / beacons and timber act as a way of acknowledging the past and anchoring the GCCC to the present whilst also connecting to a global future.
