Profile of Richard Kirk Architect, headquartered in Australia. Four projects submitted by Richard Kirk Architect have been published on Architecture News Plus (ANP).
Richard Kirk established his own practice in 1995 after graduating from the University of Queensland in 1991 with first class Honours. Richard Kirk (RKA) have expertise in architecture, urban design, interiors and environmentally sustainable design with studios in Brisbane and Shanghai servicing projects in Australia and Asia.
The culture of RKA fosters a collaborative studio where ideas are explored for each project. The practice has a great interest in the role that well made buildings play in the communities and environments they intend to serve. With each project, RKA works to make evocative places and memorable buildings that are clearly legible in terms of how they are spatially organised and constructed.
The practice has a deep interest in developing construction methods and materials to produce unique buildings that respond directly to each client, brief and circumstance. The practice’s approach to each client’s brief is not just responsive but pro-active.
It is through our efforts in the planning process, attention to the detail and an intimate approach during construction that we are confident of making fine architecture at every scale.
The design intensive practice has won numerous professional awards including the Queensland Royal Australian Institute of Architects Beatrice Hutton Award for Commercial Architecture in 2004 for the Cutting Edge building in West End and the F.D.G. Stanley Award for the Sir Llew Edwards Building, University of Queensland.
