Project summary

Craft’d Grounds is a thriving artisan brewery, food and lifestyle destination. Designed to host an eclectic mix of tenancies, Craft’d Grounds enlivens an emerging precinct with spaces that celebrates locally sourced and made for the Brisbane community. The architectural design is a sustainable exemplar for building reuse, reflecting the ethos of its owner and considering financial viability. The existing significant steel portal framed structure with it’s distinctive sawtooth roofscape is retained, whilst many of the intrusive later additions that were incrementally added over time, have been removed with layers carefully peeled back to reveal the industrial story of the building beneath. The new interventions are subservient to the former industrial building, revealing the existing column grid whilst maximising transparency from the street, to proudly highlight the internal activities.
