TC Beirne Building

Brisbane, Australia


With a dual street presence to the China Town and Brunswick Street Malls, the TC Beirne Building in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley allows for a unique connection between the two precincts, linking both through a new urban retail precinct at ground level.

In reimagining these tenancies there was a focus on re-introducing texture and materiality; the rich and complementary palette offers surprise and delight to patrons as they move through the space while a feature atrium within the central arcade celebrates the heritage volume that extends upwards into the commercial spaces above.

Adding a human scale, intimate corners encourage visitors to dwell while an abundance of natural light provides contrast and amenity. Further animating the precinct, our Bx team designed and implemented an urban art installation to create a sense of vibrancy and movement along with delivering rebranding and a wayfinding strategy.

In refurbishing and reinvigorating the TC Beirne and Burlington Buildings the architectural heritage of one of the Valleys most distinctive precincts is uniquely celebrated and reclaimed as a premier destination for the area.
