One Room Tower, Brisbane (Australia), 2018, by Phorm architecture + design with Silvia Micheli and Antony Moulis, is a small addition to the architecture of the city, completed in West End, Brisbane, (QLD, Australia) in 2018. A determinate form of indeterminate occupation – it is simultaneously intended as an urban artefact and utility, designed as a robust and adaptable set of ‘subspaces’ within a singular volume. The tower is a typological idea initiated in the design process via the early acknowledgement of a site within the site.
One Room Tower has received the House of the Year (Brisbane Region) and a State Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions) as part of the Australian Institute of Architects, 2018 Queensland Awards program for its ambitious urban and typological concept.
One Room Tower brings into practice through a built work a method to valorise the micro-context, ready for consideration by the community, government and construction industry. In social terms, One Room Tower is a living experiment and has the ambition to become a structure able to accommodate different future scenarios within a rapidly changing inner city location. At the broadest level, One Room Tower adds to the professional effort to develop Australian cities through layering – and give consideration to contemporary interventions that could meaningfully add to the story of inner city urbanisation
