Brooke made the decision to form Holdsworth Design after 15+ years experience in the profession and attaining management level at two large Newcastle practices.
In 1998 Brooke graduated from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Architecture- Honours Class 1 and since this time has had successful career with a number of well-respected Architectural practices.
'A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable.'
Brooke's upbringing and links to both the city [Sydney] and country [Scone], provided the opportunity to experience two very different lifestyles, environments and communities.
His interest in Architecture and Art comes from his father who is an Art Teacher and parents who have renovated two historic buildings.
This experience and understanding of the urban and natural environment informs his design philosophy today- in seeking a sensitive balance. Brooke's Architecture is deeply enriched by a sense of place, be it urban, suburban or rural, and is produced through an analytical process. It is always practical and functional.
The greatest sense of satisfaction Brooke is able to achieve in his career is through helping people and communities.
Brooke's interests outside of the profession include being an active father to two beautiful daughters, mountain biking, bushwalking, gym, golf, piano, horses, food and wine.
Brooke is well-travelled and his experiences of other cultures, and adventurous spirit, is prevalent in his designs.
