Victorian Pride Centre Design Winners Announced!

29th January, 2018

The winners are announced for the competition to design an Australian-first – the Victorian Pride Centre.

In August last year, competition entries opened for the opportunity to design Australia’s first-ever purpose-built Pride Centre. Eighteen entries were submitted by leading architecture firms – and now we have the winners!

Local Melbourne firms Grant Amon Architects and Brearley Architects & Urbanists have been selected to bring to life their vision for the Victorian Pride Centre, which will take pride of place (pun intended) on Fitzroy Street in St Kilda.

‘With the recent outcome from the marriage equality vote and accompanying legislation, this building will serve as a legacy to the historical change that occurred in Australia last year,’ says Jude Munro AO, the Chair of the Victorian Pride Centre Board.

Inspired by the San-Francisco LGBT Community Centre, the Pride Centre will likely host major LGBTQI organisations including JOY FM, the Victorian AIDS Council, Minus18 and the Melbourne Queer Film Festival. The Australian first-of-its-kind will be a safe-space hub for LGBTQI groups and organisations to share ideas and resources.

After some pretty trying times for the queer community, we’re loving all these positive vibes! With the Centre set to open in 2020, construction will get cracking shortly.
