About Richard Kirk Architect
We design buildings of enduring beauty that are confident in their environment and respectful to the needs of the communities they serve.
Our focus is on sensitive and landmark projects of great diversity and scale that demand a challenging response which only comes from a great design capability.
We think deeply about the role that a building is to play before we start imagining its future. Carefully considering where it sits, how it functions and its relationships within its context we build our understanding and shape our thoughts. This is where imagination takes flight.
We are deeply interested in developing construction methods and material knowledge so that the new building is exceptional in every detail. Functional and responsive to the needs of the communities it will serve, we strive to satisfy and seduce with both design and usability.
To achieve fine architecture at every scale it is this intimacy with detail that sets a foundation on which the creative response can excel.
Many minds together as one.
We work together as one great vibrant creative mind in a collaborative culture where our founder, Richard Kirk, has personal connection and direction on every project.
Ideas, challenges, innovation and performance come together in an active response to a client brief that both answers and suggests.
We collaborate across borders drawing on the combined capability of our Brisbane, Shanghai, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur studios with more than 100 creative minds contributing in a vibrant cultural integration of thought.
At Richard Kirk Architect we deliver profoundly suitable buildings that are truly beautiful and confident in their context.
