Villa Balen

Based around the concept of a Balinese house our design makes full use of the moderate climatic conditions through providing three distinct pavilions interconnected by covered outdoor living areas.

Mackay Entertainment Centre

Stea won this commission in an anonymous design competition against four national firms. The completed 1100 seat theatre won an Australian Institute of Architects State Award and was heralded in the theatrical press as one of the best regional theatres.

Harrisville Container Farmhouse

This project was about providing comfortable ‘bushcamp’ accommodation for the owners of a major greenhouse development. 

Whitsunday Council Chambers

Subsequent to STEA’s suggestion to locate of the Community Resilience & Innovation Hub over the existing carpark, Council decided to incorporate these facilities within a redevelopment of the council’s chambers. 

The Grange

Stea was engaged to design a new multi-million-dollar residence in Rockhampton on a property with 3 existing houses.

Rockhampton Airport

Rockhampton won the 2007 Australian Airports Association Major Airport of the Year and was also awarded the QMBA Central Queensland, Project of the Year and the QMBA State Award in Tourism Hospitality Facilities.

Gladstone Library

To supplement the natural lighting and ventilation inherent in our design we incorporated a fully computerised building management system. Extensive analysis demonstrated a return period of less than four years for the required capital investment.

Dudley Denny City Library

This project encompassed the refurbishment of a CBD building, donated to Mackay Regional Council, to accommodate a new, state of the art city library.
The flexibility of the internal layout is maximised through a large open space surrounded by quiet areas, study rooms, booth seating, a young adults area, a children’s space and a special heritage display.

Juru Enterprises

This 2014 project includes training, administration and recreational facilities for an indigenous community organisation.
