Capalaba Library and Town Centre
|People:||Budget: $3.45 Million|
The Capalaba Library was a component of a planning study by
Jackson Architecture completed for the Redland Shire Council
for the development of a new town centre. The project involved
extensive consultation with the local community to determine the
issues of importance, and the facilities that were considered appropriate for the location. The information gathered contributed to the quality design of the centre and its success as a community hub.
The building accomodates a library with 40, 000 volumes, an art
exhibition and art space, a community hall, a customer service
centre, and meeting rooms located around a courtyard.
