Five Mile Radius is a Brisbane based design studio exploring Australia's construction materials. We create projects, products and educational content that imagine a world built on ethically sourced material resources.
Founded in 2016, the studio operates out of a 130 year old brass foundry in central Brisbane. The studio team is the collaborative effort of a group of architects, tradespeople and educators passionate about testing new ideas for Australia's built future.
Five Mile Radius uses pilot projects to prototype ideas, often turning projects into products that allow for continued experimentation. Funds generated through the Five Mile Shop are used to fuel additional materials research and create educational events and content.
The studio works with both recycled and natural materials and is seen as a local leader in closed loop thinking, waste reuse and bioclimatic design.
Future dream clients include the CSIRO, local governments, arts and community organisations, philanthropic organisations and rural communities.
One day, the studio hopes to operate from a bus and drive around Australia helping communities to unlock the potentials of the materials around them.
