Alongside City of Gold Coast, we’re proud to share in the congratulations this week during the 2022 Queensland Architecture Awards, as ARM Architecture walk away as a winner of the Public Architecture Award.
HOTA Gallery has made a bold and unapologetic inclusion to the Gold Coast skyline since completion in 2021.
The unmissable building is the latest addition to the City of Gold Coast Masterplan, following the rebrand from Arts Centre Gold Coast to HOTA, the opening of the Outdoor Stage, and the Green Bridge linking the precinct to Chevron Island.
ARM Architecture have won the award three years after winning the same award for their design of the Outdoor Stage. The Outdoor Stage also won the 2018 Architects Landscape Architecture Award (Civic landscape) and Tourism Award of Excellence from the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects Qld Chapter, and a 2019 Colorbond Award commendation for the Voronoi shade over the stage (AIA Qld).
The third completed element in the HOTA Masterplan for the City of Gold Coast, the architecture provides a beacon for the site, and long views to the precinct from afar. The Voronoi, initially utilised as an organising strategy, now forms a bold motif across the façade, adapting and shifting in response to external change. Representing a bold, cultural precinct, reflecting the youthful energy of Australia’s sixth biggest City. Congratulations, ARM Architecture.
Each of the six gallery spaces is digitally enabled, immersive and destinational with 5m ceilings and roof-loading capability. Gallery 1 is a 1,000m² AAA-rated exhibition hall, fully climate controlled for national and international touring exhibitions. You can read more about ARM Architecture's vision of HOTA Gallery here.
