LatStudios were engaged by Lendlease on behalf of RNA to design and deliver Alexandria Precinct, a new open space precinct and events space as part of the Brisbane Showground redevelopment. The space was created through the removal of redundant sheds and was designed with consideration of future residential and commercial development interfaces. Collaborating with heritage architects Conrad Gargett, the former dairy shed known as Building 8 was given a new lease of life as an events pavilion at the heart of the precinct.
The $2.9 billion redevelopment of the Brisbane Showgrounds is one of the most significant urban renewal project in Brisbane, creating a unique new mixed use urban neighbourhood integrated with the event functions and heritage character of the precinct.
