• Yeerongpilly Green

    Hill Thalis + Clare Design have won the Yeerongpilly Green project in Brisbane with Consolidated Properties. Clare Design + Hill Thalis worked together to master plan a contemporary and diversified built environment, with a confident architectural character based on urban condition, amenity and environmental performance. Our intention is to create an appropriate urban scale through a diverse range of solutions – in type, scale, form and material that are unified by a consistent response to the site and its sub tropical context. The announcement has been covered in the Australian Financial Review, The Age, and the Courier Mail

Jaunty things you can do with bricks! Go at any angle, up and down hills, leave some out to shoot your arrows through, even bend them seemingly #greatwallofchina #bricks #brickwork #fortification #steepsteps #defense #castelations #terrain
