Brewster Hjorth were awarded the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture and a Commendation for Sustainable Architecture for the Cooroy Library by the Queensland Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects. We are thrilled to accept this award on behalf of our team and our local architect, Robinson Architects, and now look forward to the National Architecture Award which will be held in Sydney on 7 November.
Cooroy Library – Brewster Hjorth Architects
Both building and landscape, Cooroy Library effectively inserts a contemporary architectural element into the rural townscape of Cooroy – connecting the main street with the community parklands and cultural arts precinct of the Butter Factory. Housed in a robust and low energy shell, the interior spaces are bright and alive with colour, activity and natural light and support a range of community functions both now and with flexibility for the future.
