We are delighted to share that the Thomas Dixon Centre recently won four awards at the 2023 Australian Institute of Architects State Awards.

  • The Harry Marks Award for Sustainable Architecture
  • The State Award for Heritage Architecture
  • The State Award for Public Architecture
  • The COLORBOND® Award for Steel Architecture

“The Centre has been sensitively transformed into a dynamic space that seamlessly combines the preservation of its architectural heritage with the demands of modern functionality… Beyond its role as a heritage site, the Thomas Dixon Centre now serves as a catalyst for wellness, art, and performance in the State of Queensland.” – 2023 Australian Institute of Architects State Awards Jury

A building that started its life as a shoe factory in 1908, is now a world-class performing arts destination thanks to the bold vision of Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Director Li Cunxin AO and Executive Director Dilshani Weerasinghe.

Our heartfelt congratulations also go to the architects and designers in the Conrad Gargett team. The awards are a testament to their hard work and creativity.
