Cairns Convention Centre Expansion | Cox Architecture and CA Architects

The Cairns Convention Centre Expansion is a significant addition to an important public building first constructed in 1996.
The Project reorientates the building to face the Trinity Inlet and the mountain range beyond. The design solution was a specific response to place and provides a new address and identity and was orchestrated to face the view. The joyful façade screen is a response to the sun path, whilst allowing views and reflecting the local botanic colours.
The building is an important magnet for tourism supporting businesses as well as being an important addition to regional Queensland. The expansion allows the facility to maximise the limited seasonal window in Cairns.
The building includes a new plenary, exhibition, banquet space, meeting rooms, terraces and an undercover Garden Arrival. Additionally, a major upgrade was provided to the existing building, focusing on the Auditorium and the Arena in response to the Convention Centre market.
