New World City Design Guides
Arkhefield in collaboration with Brisbane City Council and Urbis prepared the New World City Design Guide: Buildings that Breathe to provide a shared vision for achieving subtropical building design in Brisbane.
Arkhefield worked with the client to develop spaces for extended relatives to gather with their families; the existing Queenslander repositioned to allow the new addition to embrace the most desirable light and breezes from a north facing landscaped courtyard and pool in the new Brookes Residence.
Clayfield House is a substantial renovation and extension to a 1930s cottage, which sits part way down a steeply sloping street on Brisbane’s inner Northeast.
