Heritage City Site; Student Accommodation

looking up

This scheme integrates with the existing heritage structures on site to provide an interesting, varied and contextual environment for occupants and visitors to the site. The Ground Plane and Podium provides for a range of hospitality and boutique commercial or retail opportunities in a setting that is unique to Brisbane city. Whilst most other development projects on heritage sites remove existing heritage elements, proposed new build elements are situated over and built above heritage address, retaining existing heritage elements which are of excellent quality. The tower itself utilises raw finish materials (concrete, natural anodised aluminium, timber, painted steel) to create an organic base palette, over which is overlaid a network of vertical gardens and semi-indoors recreational spaces, acting as ‘verandahs’ at certain key floors through the towers height.
