Queensland Ballet HQ.
Queensland Ballet HQ has recently completed a $100 million refurbishment and extension of its historic home. Housed in a 110-year-old former boot factory designed by architect Richard Gailey and built in 1908, the redevelopment of the Thomas Dixon Centre has retained its original brick facade with nods to Georgian revival-style architecture throughout.
Works included the refurbishment of the existing centre with the addition of a new three-storey extension to make way for six dance studios, a performance and wellness centre, expanded wardrobe and production facilities, a roof terrace, cafe and function spaces. Five historic air raid shelters have also been converted into a “bunker bar” that will be ready to host exclusive hospitality experiences from next year.
Classic Architectural Group supplied and installed all tactiles and stair nosings at the venue, as well as supplying all floor trims.
