Brooke Kildey has over 12 years experience in Architecture, spanning Australia, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. Her employment with several national and multi-national architectural and development firms around the globe has provided her with a wealth of experience in the fields of multi-residential, hotel and leisure, and sports and recreation architecture.

Between 2004 and 2005 she was part of the design documentation team responsible for the Royal Ascot Racecourse in the United Kingdom, where she was responsible for leading a sub-consultant team through design development and liaising with contractor and sub-contractor for two of the most prominent and prestigious areas of the new build, the Royal Box and Weighing-In Room.

In 2006 Brooke went on to develop her sports and recreation architectural experience in the United Arab Emirates where she was appointed Design Manager for a private development firm delivering a large scale mixed use development within the DUBAILAND development. The project incorporated polo & equestrian facilities, club houses with day spa facilities, country club amenities, multi-residential and high-end estate Homes, a commercial hub and a 5 star international standard hotel. The clients’ vision was one inspired by both the traditional English town architecture styling and those of the plantation homes of the deep south of America.

In 2008 while working with another Australian architectural firm with offices in Dubai, her design tender won the commission for Dubai’s prestigious Country Club. The facilities yet to be realized, catered for 11 food and beverage outlets, function spaces for 600 people, day spa facilities for men and women, a kids club, separate family and adults only swimming pools, and sporting facilities including squash courts, open plan gymnasium, clay and grass tennis courts, a full sized soccer field plus parking for 400 cars.

Post graduation, Brooke has on several occasions had the opportunity to tutor Architectural theory at Queensland University of Technology, as well as tutoring Masters’ students from USA during her time in the UK. She was participant in the 2005 London Architecture week and continues to pursue her keen interest in theoretical aspects of architecture, through further research, and is an active blogger on aspects of architecture both in Australia and abroad.

In January 2009, after too many years away from her home town, Brooke has returned to Brisbane and to Architects Australia to fill the position as Associate Director in her family’s Architectural practice. Her focus and development of Architects Australia’s knowledge in sustainable design has seen her recently qualify as a Green Star Professional.
