About the project

Brisbane Customs House has seen many uses over the years, and our team has not only contributed to the restoration and revitalisation of the site, they also are actively updating the site for contemporary and further adaptation.

The conservation of the Brisbane Customs House (1993-4) followed an expression of interest from the Federal Government for the building’s reuse. The project was undertaken for The University of Queensland and it became the focus for the University within the Brisbane CBD. It housed a diverse range of cultural uses including a gallery for the UQ art collection, a function centre, a riverside brassiere with catering facilities, bookshop, seminar rooms and offices.
