ASPECT Studios Brisbane celebrates its first 6 months
aspect studios brisbane qld Toowoomba Grand Central shopping centre   It’s been a busy six months since launching ASPECT Studios Brisbane. After a smooth transition, we jumped straight into a series of high-profile projects in both Queensland and New South Wales and also have some interesting local projects in the pipeline. Each project reinforces our commitment towards people-focused design and to improving our built and natural environment.   One of the first projects we picked up since launching in Brisbane is the design of a new public realm for the city’s iconic ‘Gabba Stadium and surrounding precinct. Working in collaboration with architecture practice Populous, our brief for the project was to create more cohesive connections between the community and the stadium precinct during both game and non-game days.   We’ve also been working with our Sydney Studio colleagues on the Macquarie Park urban renewal projects. Our focus has been on two adjoining sites and designing for street activation, recreation, and ecological landscapes. This will result in landscapes that aid in the health and well-being for people and wildlife, whilst also providing a vibrant and interactive setting for businesses to flourish.   Closer to home, we were recently invited by Nature Play QLD to participate in an initial workshop to test and discuss the materials and format that will shape future nature play workshops. Nature Play QLD aims to increase the time kids spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature and this is an important project to be a part of.   NATUREPLAY_ASPECTSTUDIOS5   ASPECT Studios Brisbane also has busy times ahead moving towards the next phase of the Toowoomba’s Grand Central shopping centre, developed by QIC.   We are also on the home stretch of administering site works at 1 William Street in Brisbane, which is a significant new building contributing to the Brisbane sky line designed by Woods Bagot. 1 William will re-house and assemble many of the State Governments Department under one roof.   In addition to this range of people-focused projects, our Studio Director, Deb Robbins has been working as a sessional academic at QUT and has been making guest appearances at the university’s School of Landscape Architecture. Deb’s extensive experience in pre-design strategies, urban streetscapes, environmental, commercial and residential landscape design is sure to inspire the next generation of landscape architects.   We’ve been actively recruiting to expand our Brisbane team in recent months and have been impressed by the quality of applicants that have come ASPECT’s way. We plan to have a new member of the team within the coming weeks. With a strong team of landscape architects in place, ASPECT Studios Brisbane looks set to reshape the way Queenslanders interact with the spaces around them and to design more of the places where people want to be.   [caption id="attachment_5880" align="alignleft" width="800"]image credit - Kgbo image credit - Kgbo[/caption] Return to News
