Kirk was established in Brisbane, Australia in 1995 as Richard Kirk Architect. The practice has expertise in architecture, urban design and environmentally sustainable design, with studios in Brisbane, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur.
Kirk has a great interest in the role that well-made buildings play in the communities and environments they intend to serve.
With each project we work to make evocative places and buildings that are memorable and clearly legible in terms of how they are spatially organised and constructed.
The practice has a deep passion for developing construction methods and material knowledge to produce unique buildings that respond directly to each client, brief and circumstance.
Kirk’s approach to client briefs is not only responsive but also pro-active. The diversity of projects within the practice has developed a robust design sensibility and process.
Each project has the same team leader for all phases which ensures the continual refinement of ideas and building quality and a single point of contact for the client. It is through our efforts in the planning process, attention to detail and an intimate approach during construction that fine architecture is made at every scale.
Current and recent projects range in values from $0.2M to $1B. The diversity of projects include furniture, landscape, single residences, interior fitouts, university and school buildings, master planning, infrastructure and urban design.
