About the project

The Whitsunday Regional Council Building combines the Regional Council Administration, the Local Disaster Co-ordination Centre and the Climate Change Innovation Hub into a consolidated site located centrally in Proserpine, on the central Queensland Coast.

The building balances a desire for openness and transparency, with the need to secure the building in the event of a cyclone enabling it to continue to operate at the co-ordination centre.

A screened glass facade site beyond a welcoming civic verandah, which leads into a generous civic lounge room where council activities and the information centre enable an active and engaging "shop front" to the street.
