Victorian Pride Centre wins top Victorian Premier’s Design Awards

The Victorian Pride Centre has won two major prizes recognising the building’s unique and groundbreaking design at March 15’s Victorian Premier’s Design Awards: for Architectural Design and overall design.

This year’s top prize, the Victorian Premier’s Design Award of the Year, went to the Victorian Pride Centre in St Kilda, designed by Brearley Architects + Urbanists, Grant Amon Architects, WSP and Peter Felicetti.

The first purpose-built centre for Australia’s LGBTIQ+ communities, the Victorian Pride Centre was praised by judges for its deep sense of place and historical connection to St Kilda’s LGBTIQ+ communities. In addition to the top prize, the Victorian Pride Centre also won the category award for architectural design.” – Creative Victoria
