Paul Fairweather
Formal CPD
1 Hour - FORMAL
Duration: 00:40:26
Coastal architectural design involves a distinctive combination of environmental, political and economic concerns and for this reason is uniquely challenging. Paul Fairweather describes a diverse range of coastal architectural designs, undertaken by his practice, Fairweather Proberts Architects. An assortment of architectural types are presented including large and small scale apartment developments, warehouse conversions and high end housing developments. Paul explains the environmental issues, council restrictions and budget limitations encountered during these projects and the often unique ways in which these issues were addressed in his designs.
  • Have an understanding of the issue involved in coastal architectural developments.
  • Value the importance of a sensitive approach to the environment and community.
  • Understand how the careful consideration of ordering, sequencing and articulation of three-dimensional form can enhance the building site and surrounds.
  • Value the interests of the public community in private architectural developments which occupy land of important environmental significance.
  • Understand the importance of the appropriate selection of materials, products and systems in appropriately addressing contextual issues, the developer’s economic considerations and the desires of the final consumer.

    Fairweather Proberts Architects

    Fairweather Proberts was formed with the merger of Paul’s and Liam Proberts’ practices in 1996.  Since that time, Fairweather Proberts has grown to become a leader in residential design in Queensland.  Fairweather Proberts has also developed a strong presence in the areas of Educational Design, Public Housing and Interior Design.  In more recent times, Fairweather Proberts has broadened its expertise in the areas of Commercial, Retail and Hospitality Design.

    As a practice Fairweather Proberts has been involved in some of Queensland’s and Australia’s leading and most awarded developments including:

    • Catalina Riverfront Houses
    • Saville Hotel Southbank;
    • The Kelvin Grove Urban Village;
    • Bright Point Apartments, Magnetic Island; and
    • National Police Memorial, Canberra.
    Fairweather Proberts’ approach to design is to understand the context of every project, to listen to their clients’ needs and develop highly creative, yet commercial design solutions for each project.

    Fairweather Proberts’ approach to business is to focus on their people.  This strong focus on the people who deliver the outcomes to clients is what makes Fairweather Proberts the successful practice that it is.

    Paul is not only passionate about his work with Fairweather Proberts, but also about the industry generally.  This is demonstrated in Paul’s role with the Royal Australian Institute of Architecture as Queensland State Director of Architecture Awards. 

    Paul is also a well know Brisbane artist and was a finalist in the 2001 Archibald Prize at the gallery of New South Wales.
