Brookes Street Office North

James Russell Architect

What is the ‘big (IDEA)’ behind this project?
The Brookes Street Office North is a carefully inserted three storey building occupying the corner of a heritage-listed Methodist Church. A playful use of brick bonds allows the crafted masonry basement to provide a staircase and suspended floor for a public meeting place. The two transparent walls of the meeting place drop into the basement, integrating the space into the urban landscape. The brick detail of the existing church flanks the timber platform above, with the deck mostly open to the Queensland climate.
