Hayball is extremely PROUD that our scheme for the Victorian Pride Centre design competition is one of four shortlisted to Stage 2.
As the new home of Victoria’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex communities, the project is an unprecedented celebration of inclusivity and diversity which we’re gratified to be a part of.
VPC Board Chair Jude Munro said, “The Pride Centre will house up to ten major organisations as permanent tenants and provide multi-use spaces for use by smaller LGBTI community organisations for meetings, training, rehearsal and other activities. Facilities and spaces will also include a health service, library, prayer room, café/bar, theatrette and gallery.”
The VPC is funded by the Victorian State Government and the Victorian AIDS Council and is supported by the City of Port Phillip, which has provided the 1600 sqm site on 79-81 Fitzroy Street, St Kilda.
Stage 1 of the design competition attracted 18 competitors. As we proceed to Stage 2, we extend congratulations to our fellow shortlisted colleagues: Grant Amon Architects and Brearley Architects + Urbanists; BKK & Sibling Architecture; and, Preston Lane Architects.
The competition jury will select a winner in early 2018. More information: The Victorian Pride Centre
