Parliament of Victoria Member’s Annex Building by Peter Elliott Architecture & Urban Design
The new annex building provides much-needed office accommodation for 102 members of parliament and their support staff. Parliament House is nearly 160 years old but was never completed. After a century and a half of makeshift and inadequate member’s offices and numerous failed schemes to extend Parliament House, the new building finally solves a long standing accommodation problem. The annex has been constructed as a separate free-standing building within the eastern gardens of the Parliamentary precinct but is linked back into Parliament House via a bridge, tunnel and laneway connections.
