• 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
