The State Library Victoria Redevelopment: Vision 2020 project has been proudly recognised in the Property Council of Australia’s 2021 Innovation & Excellence Awards, named both Best Heritage Building and Best Public Building of the year.
Completed in December 2019, State Library Victoria Vision 2020 transformed Australia's oldest and busiest public library and one of Victoria’s most important cultural institutions.
At the heart of Vision 2020 was the refurbishment of the Library's iconic Ian Potter Queen’s Hall, the creation of innovative new spaces for children and teenagers, and the reinvention of library services to embrace new technologies that promote digital literacy and creativity.
The ambitious program has ensured that the Library continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of our vibrant, diverse community across Melbourne and regional Victoria, today and into the future whilst uncovering, respecting and celebrating the extraordinary heritage and history of these spaces
