Brisbane Powerhouse is in the heart of New Farm and Teneriffe’s historical industrial zone, which originally featured a sugar refinery, gasworks, wharves and wool stores.
The building was once a working power station which electrified the city from the 1920s to the 1970s. Left abandoned, the city’s artists, rebels and fringe-dwellers used the building as a performance space, home and underground hang-out.
So the natural progression was for The Powerhouse to transform into a home for arts, culture and creativity. It houses the 536-seat Powerhouse Theatre, the 200-seat Visy theatre, Turbine Hall, outdoor plaza, green spaces, rooftop terrace, bar, restaurant and plays host to weekend farmers' markets.
