Rexroth Mannasmann Collective led by Directors BrentonWeisert, Kirsty Fletcher and Giles Lawson, has been practicing in Melbourne for nearly 10 years working on a range of projects including small scale residential insertions, alterations and additions and new residential projects.
Each of the directors brings a differing approach to the practice.
Kirsty has an interest in pattern making, while Giles comes from a building & construction background and Brenton’s interests lie in typology and detail. What brings these three together is their shared passion for contextually appropriate place and space.
“As many of our projects are alterations and additions, we are always looking for cues from the existing building or neighbourhood.”
A recent example of a small scale project that encapsulates their core practice values is Cate’s Kitchen. This adaptive reuse project is crafty and creative in its approach to space and fluid living, and injects colourful and playful moments into a small area.
