arkLAB’s Learning Centre for Kawana State College received both a Regional Commendation and the Sunshine Coast People's Choice Award at the 2023 Australian Institute of Architects Sunshine Coast Regional Architecture Awards.

arkLAB were successful in securing this unique commission to develop the Queensland AI Hub, the first facility of its kind in Australia. The selected site for this exciting project was within the historic TC Bierne Building in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley and contained a rich palette of existing materials to work with including heritage brickwork, large arched windows, historical exposed ceiling and timber flooring. 

arkLAB’s $33M Queensland Academy for Science, Mathematics and Technology Expansion Project comprised the design development of two major facilities for the campus: a multi-storey Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Centre, as well as a new multi-storey Learning Centre both employing pedagogy-driven planing and facility design. 

This world-class molecular diagnostic facility delivers bio-safety for Australia’s Northern borders.  This represents the first stage of a $40M Berrimah Farm Science Precinct project for NT Government, under a joint-venture between the Department of Primary Industry and Resources (DPIR) and the Australian Government to create a purpose-built Quarantine Containment Level 3 (QC3) facility.

The Performing Arts Centre at Wilsonton State High School sets a new standard for public school and community architecture in the region. Originally inspired by the parched landscape, warm toned bricks, cladding, and paving were used to tie the project to the colour scheme and vernacular of the street with the school colours also being threaded throughout the project. Using a diverse range of materials, the expansive southern façade is broken up into this undulating face with glazing being introduced as the inner program becomes more public facing. 

Our rehabilitation of the University of Queensland’s historical Mayne Medical School included restoration of historical public spaces, services infrastructure and compliance works.  This project, which included a series of fitouts completed over several stages, represented a $6M investment. 


The heritage approach taken in this project was one of restoring original building fabric where it existed, returning the building’s internal spaces to their original volumes and inserting new furniture and services systems sensitively, but honesty, into the restored spaces.
