Brisbane Apartment Building – 27 Aug 2011
A thorough analysis of the site context informed the design. This Brisbane building is conceived as part of a masterplan that balances the needs of private and public stakeholders. One of the key concerns was the relationship between the proposed building and the heritage-listed Silverwells residences at the northern end of the site. By concentrating the building footprint in the south end of the site, a dynamic public space was created between the two buildings. This enlivens the streetscape by providing clear views and pedestrian access to Kangaroo Point.

Wharf Road Surfers Paradise – 19 Sep 2011
Over the last 5,000 years man has worked hard to over power the natural world through the built environment – we propose to revolutionize this position. Australia possesses one of the most beautiful and dramatic geologies in the world. It is our desire to create a new type of architecture – one that is more in the family of nature than of the built environment.

Brisbane Building – 9 Aug 2011
The Ecosciences Precinct brings together 1,000 scientists from four state agencies and six CSIRO divisions into a single, collaborative research environment. The project achieves a significant innovation by creating a new facility ‘without walls’, encouraging knowledge exchange and discovery through use of shared spaces and resources.
This ambitious plan required a highly collaborative multi-agency briefing in order to establish clear, well-articulated goals. Briefing with high-level stakeholders and decision makers ensured a consultative process was carried through all project phases, from conceptual design to the detailed resolution of room requirements.
