Monica form Refresh Studio 

REFRESH* [R*] is an award-winning Brisbane based architectural design studio committed to realising finely crafted contemporary architecture responsive to brief and context. We have completed a diverse range of projects including houses and renovations, townhouses and apartments, commercial and hospitality projects.

The R* team is inspired by how architecture can shape a better society by enhancing the human experience. Our mission is to use design as a tool to surpass our client’s aspiration whilst at the same time balancing their intentions to positively influence the environment.

Our work has a strong focus on sustainability, underlined by its capacity to endure. It is contextual, adaptable, harmonious and well considered in the use of space, light, material and technology. Striving for the most meaningful and sustainable solutions, from concept to delivery, in every phase we continue to improve and refine the design until the project is complete.

Our collaborative approach revolves around input from all stakeholders involved, our clients, collaborators and craftsmen. With extensive experience in urban infill developments, the R* team thrives in working on complex challenges. Difficult sites or planning controls motivate us to find alternative solutions to achieve better outcomes, and in doing so to question the conventional.

European and Australian experience as architects and developers has given us an advantage to appreciate the fundamental importance of a project’s economic viability.
