Description:

A national competition held by Brisbane City Council to redevelop King George Square in Brisbane's CBD. King George Square is the primary civic precinct in Brisbane’s city centre, and an important venue for public celebration.

 

The brief was to design King George Square as a premier civic space in Brisbane, reinforcing the connection between City Hall and the Square, and reflecting the subtropical climate of Brisbane.

 

The main Chrysalis building reflected the proportions of City Hall while providing a retail, commercial and recreational facilities.

 

The design incorporated considered placement of vegetation, seating, public art and space for retail or outdoor dining areas.

Testimonials

I have worked with Charmaine, Hieu and the team at 8i Architects for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that if you want no nonsense, non-ego based, well thought through and sensible architecture then let 8i manage your project for you. 

 

In my opinion 8i are big enough to handle projects up to the value of around $100m but small enough to provide the level of service that you won't get from the larger architectural firms who will give your project to a junior architect to manage.
