Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club
The Kurrawa Surf Live Saving Club sits at the heart of the Gold Coast community and typifies the balance between the building’s dual civic and recreational functions as a place where the city meets the beach. The Arkhefield design realising the brief for bold and visionary architecture while maintaining references to its functional use as a local Surf Life Saving Club.
Brisbane International Airport Retail Upgrade
The vision of Brisbane Airport Corporation is “to be world-best and the preferred choice for passengers, airlines, business and the community”. Arkhefield, in collaboration with Richards & Spence, were chosen to extend this inspirational vision to a major upgrade of the retail component at Brisbane International Airport—a considerable undertaking in scale and scope.
Arkhefield were approached by the Coral Expeditions Cruise Line to design the interiors of their next cruising vessel Coral Adventurer. This approach came because they desired an authentic Queensland character to the interiors, and their research revealed much of Arkhefield’s work met this key criterion.
The Q&A Building at the centre of Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall forms a cornerstone precinct for the city’s major meeting place. Arkhefield worked with Queensland Investment Corporation to create a street based life, with retail tenancies, food and beverage offerings and commercial tower above to revitalise the precinct.
