Proposed on an inner city Brisbane site this project provides eight residential apartments with open plan interior space and large balconies conducive to outdoor Queensland living. The site is located in an eclectic neighbourhood of building types ranging from traditional timber residences to banal three storey masonry walk-ups. This apartment applies salient characteristics of traditional building types to integrate itself into the street context. Long linear balconies are employed to marry the building with traditional verandas. The building cuts back at one corner to genuflect to an existing mature Poinciana that also marks entry. The third floor is arranged with a deep setback from the street to respect the height of the existing two storey residences on each side. Traditional and modern cladding is combined with laser cut screening to provide the building a unique identity as well as assure visual privacy.
