Proximity Hamilton, a new residence in Brisbane’s Portside Wharf precinct, has been launched. Designed by Cottee Parker Architects, the development comprises 127 one and two bedroom apartments.

The building’s design was inspired by its proximity to the Brisbane River, and reflects the ripples created by a semi-submerged object in a flowing stream of water.

According to Cottee Parker Architects director, Sandra Browne, the woven-effect balconies and striking vertical aluminium battens will deliver an ever-changing fa├žade.

“The battens are inspired by the skeletal hulls of boats and as the ribs of a boat change along its length so too do these vertical battens change and warp along the length of the building,” says Browne.

“Subtle shifts in the spacing between each batten and subtle twists across each elevation add a sense of animation and individuality.”

Within the double-height lobby, residents’ mailboxes created by Australian artist Brett Coelho will dominate the space.

Each apartment is also designed with an emphasis on light timber finishes, inspired by timeless Scandinavian and Japanese design.

The units are available in a choice of two colour schemes with floor-to-ceiling windows, air conditioning, reconstituted stone bench tops and a range of European appliances.

Other facilities include secure car parking, two lifts for convenient entry, and a podium-level pool with sundeck and views towards the Brisbane CBD, and south along the city’s meandering river.
