YHA City Hostel *ST with BVN

Brisbane, Australia.

The purpose of the project was to develop a quality, budget accommodation/backpacker facility which brought travellers together in the spirit of hostelling, but also provided greater privacy and more amenity through the use of twin and double rooms, some with ensuites.

As the flagship of YHA Queensland, the building had to reflect the culture and lifestyle of the region and be innovative in the style of accommodation facilities it provided to the backpacker industry. The architecture therefore had to be innovative and memorable to complement the spirit of the project. In addition the building was to passively respond to Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate, with public areas opening up to become indoor/outdoor spaces where guests may enjoy the feeling of shelter whilst inhabiting the edges of the building.
