    Kangaroo Point QLD

    Demonstrating how art can coexist with the functional in multi-residential developments, the twisting white strands of precast concrete are modelled on the intertwined roots of a Mimosa tree clutching the riverbank, formed carefully considered to minimise the mass of the material.

    The integrated wall of art works as sunscreen, privacy screen and interior form maker for the residences. The east and west, Queensland sun-facing ends, are protected with glazed screens, thick blinds and expansive decks from the heat and glare.

    ARCHITECT’S WORDS

    Located on a corner block bound by Scott Street and Main Street in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, this site has a riverside location directly opposite the Brisbane CBD. Previously occupied by a late 1950s motel, purchasers Waterford Properties commissioned Jackson Teece to design a new iconic apartment building to provide studio-style luxury accommodation.

    The new building, compromising 10 apartments over 15 stories utilises an asymmetric planning device to create a building form with a sinuous lack of 90 degree corners. An iconic public face for the building, in the form of a 400 tonne concrete screen to the eastern facade, presents a dramatic sculptural landmark to the busy traffic passing across the Story Bridge. This element creates an identity for the project with a pattern derived from the naturally found riverside Mimosa trees.

    The northern and southern facades have a subtle deflected profile created by two large curves. Formed of cast concrete elements, and perforated with windows to bedrooms and amenities these blades of the building transition the form from the screened eastern facade to the filigreed western balconies. These balconies, seen from the CBD opposite give the building a strong horizontal rigour and provide private external spaces for each residence.

    The building sits up off the site on a playful collection of tilted support columns, creating a natural ‘undercroft’ which acts as the concierge and reception lobby. Planning for the apartments creates distinct public and private spaces, separated by an arrival lobby. This lobby contains a glass decorative screen which makes subtle reference to the external concrete facade, and provides both privacy and cross ventilation to the apartments.
