Wellcamp Airport

Wellcamp Airport Commercial

The airport is the first privately funded major airport in Australia and the first major ‘clean sheet design’ public airport development in the country since 1970. It was built to serve the significant growth in the Toowoomba region and has the capability to handle jumbo planes and international flights. We were invited and engaged to be a part of the clients design team to add value to the design direction and interior design. As a local firm we have worked with the client on regional projects and were excited to be involved in such an important infrastructure project to not only service our community for decades to come. GMB have delivered an edgy modern building in every way and it was a pleasure to design and select and procure the furniture to compliment and complete the spaces.

The BIG Little Office

The BIG Little Office Commercial

Awards 2019 Queensland Architecture Awards – People’s Choice 2019 Queensland Architecture Awards - Darling Downs / West Moreton Regional Commendation - Small Project Architecture An existing East Toowoomba ‘corner shop’ required refurbishment and a 25 square metre expansion to accommodate a small, family run financial planning business. The owners wished to create a space that celebrated contemporary design and was welcoming for their clients and a workplace that was uplifting for their staff. The original awning was retained, and the shop was opened to footpath with glazing so the entry and dual-purpose lounge and meeting room could engage with passing pedestrians. The soft southern light transformed the dark and stale original space into a light and airy welcome for clients. The ceiling height was maximized in the meeting room and frameless glass doors allow these spaces to borrow from each other to create the impression of a larger volume than is actually present. To offset the constrained footprint and limited outlook, the new open workspace enjoys a lofty volume and high slot windows that look over the existing roof to the street tree canopy and wash southern light throughout the interior. Through careful arrangement of spaces and consideration of volume, interiors enjoy views of lush flora and active streetscapes despite the limited opportunities for external openings. The furnishings throughout have been selected to compliment the client’s passion for modern design and artworks procured and hung to create a gallery feel within some of the long narrow spaces.

Minerva Australis Observatory

Minerva Australis Observatory Commercial

The new Minerva Australis facility is located at the University of Southern Queensland’s Mount Kent Observatory. It is the only facility of its type in the Southern Hemisphere, dedicated to supporting NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) by performing follow-up observations and gathering data on potential planet discoveries. 12 telescopes are located in individual clam shell domes around the outside of the control building. The control building has been designed to suggest the presence of a spaceship that has landed atop this remote hilltop on the Darling Downs. At the request of the members of the University of Queensland’s Astrophysics team, the building’s interiors were inspired by the bridge of the original ‘Starship Enterprise’ from Star Trek. This building contains a dual-purpose control room and teaching space for staff and visitor presentations, staff amenities, computer servers and the two laboratory clean rooms to house the spectrographs which process the optical data gathered by the telescopes. Due to the client’s desire to use the Control Building for workshops and public events, an awning was added to the eastern end of the building to create a covered outdoor gathering space. The form of this awning was designed to suggest the presence of a spaceship wing with the tip down turned to provide protection from the sun.

Highfields State Secondary College

Highfields State Secondary College Commercial

As part of the continued expansion of the campus a new double storey classroom block was required for use by the new Year 11 students of 2019. The classrooms are located on the upper level with the ground plane using the shelter of the building above to create an all weather area for the students to utilise. The palette of red brick, painted cladding and prefinished steel has been continued from the existing campus, new coloured aluminium screens have been used to create an identity for the block and add vibrancy to the surrounding external spaces. Due to the continuing increase in student numbers the school also required a new assembly space and indoor sports hall which could cater for major events and gatherings. The structure was designed for future expansion and also housed classrooms, a gym, change facilities and canteen. Working closely with the builder and project manager we were able to provide accurate documentation and construction phase services to assist in delivering the project ahead of time and on budget.
