PLACE

P L AC E R i c h a rd s a n d S p e n ce Architects Richards and Spence have been entrusted with orchestrating the carefully considered design decisions in the James Street precinct for the past fifteen years. Their vision, alongside that of a small dedicated group of developers and property owners has driven a captivating subtropical design aesthetic that makes it an alluring community gathering point for shoppers, flaneurs, people watchers and food and drink purveyors alike.

RICHARDS AND SPENCE

Beginning with the award-winning Cox Rayner designed James Street Market, (with Richards as an employed architect in that firm), the Richards and Spence portfolio of built works includes 19 James Street featuring the leafy Gerard’s Lane; the vast foliage fringed renovation that houses Pottery Barn (p176) and West Elm (p178); and the impressive gallery-like Living Edge (p162) showroom. Their most recent project, The Calile Hotel (p14), is perhaps the architects’ crowning glory. Both in design and functionality, the hotel knits together the components of the area, and provides a drawcard and focal point for all who visit. While most are seduced by the architectural spaces and verdant landscapes of the precinct, Adrian Spence and Ingrid Richards downplay these delights as par for the course – their initial concerns are with functionality. Creating public spaces on what is private land has been key to the success of the shopping precinct. The newly conceived Ada Lane which runs along the western edge of The Calile is what Spence refers to as “the biggest gesture so far”, a promenade for shoppers that is not indoors and air conditioned, and where a small marble drinking fountain and doggie water bowl invite stopping and gathering.

“Ada Lane acts as an anchor for the collection of tenancies around it,” he says. “We love the generosity of the developers providing public space on private land.” In designing The Calile, Richards and Spence were driven firstly by the functional requirements, the site and circulation zones in and around it, the scale of the street, and by the concern to employ natural ventilation in the rooms. “Who wants to be in a conference room all day then go to a hotel room that is locked up and air conditioned?” says Spence. “We live outside all the time in Brisbane, so why not do so in a hotel room if you can?” Many rooms open onto generous scallop-edged balconies overlooking a pool deck. The pool is a focal point, with the rooms wrapping around its raised podium, and Hellenika (p144) restaurant tucked neatly alongside. Materials continue the brick and concrete palette of the precinct, while interior touches come in the form of polished brass and slabs of fluted pink marble. “We were always navigating that fine line between brutality and sweetness,” says Richards. “There was a drive to make everything endure. It’s a restrained palette, and one which won’t have to be replaced in several years’ time.” After extensive research in hot weather climes such as Miami, Palm Springs and Capri, Richards and Spence have provided an extraordinary, enduring vision that is of its time and place in subtropical James Street Brisbane.

I N C O N V E R S AT I O N

Jane Grealy Artist, architectural illustrator and long-term local

What are your memories of James Street over the years and how has it changed?

When I moved here fourty years ago, James Street was semi-industrial and very much considered the rougher end of the New Farm peninsular. There were warehouses, light industry, car mechanics and all sorts of workshops, storage yards etc. I think this is the area that has most changed, very much for the better. Now we walk down for dinner or a movie, window shop and are spoilt for choice.

What are some of the elements of the precinct that have been successful in your eyes and that make it an attraction for you to visit?

Just walking through the James Street precinct is entertaining. And it is a proper precinct, the architecture that links it all together, the scale and mix of retail, all works. Credit must be given to the developers who used the same architects over the last fifteen or so years that has resulted in an attractive cohesion rarely found. The in-between and back of house spaces are just as interesting as the facades. My most recent architectural love is the entry staircase at The Calile (p14) from ground to first floor. The scale, reminiscent to me of some ancient hall, and the attention to materials and detail, give me a sense of arrival and occasion.

You are a self-confessed fashion addict, specifically in the past an addict of the Easton Pearson label. Do you satisfy your urges in James Street and if so, which places do you haunt?

Well you could wear Easton Pearson anywhere in the world and know that you were uniquely, appropriately and interestingly dressed. Now I can still go a little crazy in Camargue (p62)... have a calming coffee at Harvey’s (p112), then a visit to Gail Sorronda (p34) is a must, and always Phoebe Stephens (p168), for flowers and inspiration.

What do you like about the James Street Precinct?

I love the way it’s been laid out. All those beautiful hanging gardens and trees makes it part of the landscape instead of a blot on the landscape. The hanging gardens are so cooling and soothing…

How does the physical layout affect visitors?

For people who like to shop, you can be on the street or a lane and not in a centre – always in the air with a feeling of a garden and community. It’s not a shopping precinct but a village.

What appeals to you about the aesthetic?

The vision of [the architects] has defined the aesthetic of the whole precinct, and they have done such an incredible job. I love sitting in Lobby Bar (p142) for coffee and peoplewatching, it feels very continental, like being in a film. The laneways have added character… and there is a feeling of established identity... The shade of the trees makes for such a comfortable summer outing, and in winter the sun and sky are so visible.

What special opportunities can James Street provide that you don’t find in others?

A sense of place and community, where the majority of the stores and businesses are authentic and local. It is a comfortable size, but with a well curated group of tenants. The chance to walk and window shop, browse and buy, and even bring your dog, is part of the way life should be lived. I feel very lucky to call it my locale.

Dutch interior designer Marloes Hoedeman was inspired to create her own lingerie label that responds to women’s versatility when she could not find what she was looking for.

Lounge robes and sleepwear that, for some, are equally wearable outside the home as inside are part of the oeuvre, with the swim range mirroring the ready-to-wear.
