This small apartment tower, to be located in one of Brisbane's most underdeveloped inner-city pockets, takes its design cues from its context of historic warehouse-industrial structures mixed with more recent, taller buildings.
The podium design borrows heavily from nearby facades, with classic red brick and exposed concrete banding interspersed with occasional arched window heads and parapet details. An open brick screen conceals and ventilates the podium carparking located above a ground level which includes reception, cafe and bar/restaurant space as well as back-of-house functions.
The tower itself has an extremely simple language with regular steel mullions running full height to meet the sawtooth roof that shelters a roof bar overlooking the city, as well as service plantrooms to the rear. The sawtooth roof and raw tower expression both reference local steel warehouse typologies.
The tower accommodates 45 apartments and is 13 storeys high above street level, with 2 additional basement levels below.
