Project summary

The Tzu Chi Community Centre is the new headquarters for an international not-for-profit Taiwanese Charitable Foundation.

The new building replaces a previous structure which had been repurposed by the Foundation from its original use as local shops. The centre has facilitated the Foundation expanding their charitable services to the broader Statewide community.

The building includes 2 levels. The ground floor features a community hall, multipurpose education rooms, a book shop and a café. The top level includes a childcare facility with 4 playrooms and an outdoor play area.

Tzu Chi Community Centre sets a new precedent for Taiwanese – Australian architecture in Queensland, creating both an aesthetic and cultural union that aims to serve the local community in which it stands.

Tzu Chi Community Centre offers a place for the local community to gather, learn, socialise, and volunteer. The Community Centre offers a wide variety of services, including; a child care centre, book store & cafe, and additional space for our charitable program. The aim was to provide flexibility for the range of diverse activities that needed to be accommodated. The design has achieved harmony between traditional principles and modern design, providing a space of tranquillity and peacefulness. The sustainable initiatives of bringing natural sunlight and cross ventilation into the centre of the building has been a massive success.
