Woods Bagot Principal and Regional Hotel Sector Leader Bronwyn McColl was one of three panellists to participate in Artichoke Night School. Held in Brisbane on Thursday 23rd March, the topic of the conversation was “Blurred lines: Designing hybrid interior spaces”.
Bronwyn was joined by Hamilton Wilson, managing director of Wilson Architects and Chris McCue of Carr Design Group (pictured below). Increasingly, designers and architects are being asked to create spaces that blur their traditional sector type in both look and function. The session explored how “sector blur” has become prevalent, discussing some of the challenges and opportunities it offers.
Bronwyn said she was delighted to be part of the conversation, citing examples such as 111 Mary Street, Brisbane and Paramount by The Office Space, Sydney.
“At the macro level, residential design is undeniably influencing workplace interiors, while at a micro level, the increasingly personalised service airlines provide can be used to better the check-in experience for hotel guests.”
Presented by Artichoke magazine, the event was part of the 2017 Asia Pacific Architecture Forum. The two-week-long Asia Pacific Architecture Forum includes a range of events including exhibitions, installations, symposia, lectures and workshops.
