An adaptive reuse of an existing disused railway workshop. The gallery includes permanent and temporary exhibition spaces, auditorium, café and retail facilities. The contrast between the old and the new is dramatised by the juxtaposition of the patina of grey and rust with brightly coloured new construction.

The QVMAG won the 2002 RAIA Tasmanian Chapter Awards for both Public Buildings and Heritage, and recently won the Tasmanian ChapterTriennial Award for Heritage Buildings. Jon Cullen was the design architect for QVMAG while at PTW Architects, and continued his involvement in association while at Cullen Feng.
