peckvonhartel design, The Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing & Ideas, has received yet another accolade, winning the Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings award at the Master Builder’s Association Awards 2011.

pvh would like to congratulate McCorkell Constructions who worked with us to deliver this exceptional building.

Planning began on The Wheeler Centre in 2008 when UNESCO bestowed Melbourne with The City of Literature title. peckvonhartel was engaged by Arts Victoria to restore a Class-A Heritage listed building located within the State Library of Victoria and transform it into a hub to house various literature organisations.

In 2010 The Wheeler Centre was awarded Best Interior Design at the Melbourne Design Awards.
