The Piano Mill, nestled near Stanthorpe, is a unique project that combines architecture with musical instruments to celebrate the musical history of outback Australia. The building houses 16 old pianos that have been sourced across Queensland, with eight on each level. Special louvres that can be opened and closed to change the building’s acoustics.
Conrad Gargett‘s Managing Director Bruce Wolfe accepted the award with his wife Jocelyn, who conducted research for the project.
“Outrageous! First building to win a National APRA award!” He said.
The Art Music Awards, now in its seventh year, is the only national event in Australia to recognise and celebrate the achievements and creativity of those who excel in these genres. The awards bring together a range of dynamic artists, from fresh faces in the industry to established creators pushing the boundaries.
