The 43-storey residential tower at 443 Queen Street, Brisbane is designed as a subtropical oasis that celebrates, engages with and responds to the natural surrounds.

Sitting pretty on the banks of the Brisbane River with unmatched city views, the residential tower, which has been labelled ‘The Queenslander That Breathes’, houses 264 sophisticated and well-designed apartments with all residents having access to the extensive wellness and recreation complex.

Each room has full height windows to allow for a light, open and airy atmosphere, while the exterior of the building is wrapped in greenery.

Given the title of Australia’s first 6-star Green Star rated residential building, the tower meets all 9 sustainable categories of management, indoor environment quality, energy, transport, water, materials, land use and ecology, emissions and innovation.

Known for their elegance, practicality and seamless integration, the ever-popular slimline tile insert grates from Lauxes Grates are featured in the minimalist marble bathrooms where the grates remain inconspicuous yet very functional.

Providing an attractive solution to any drainage requirement, the slimline tile insert grate was an easy choice for all the project stakeholders, including Cbus Property, Architectus and WOHA.
