Riverfront apartment complex which responds to its location and provides a central recreational space
The Flow apartment project is a high density multi-residential project in Brisbane’s inner-city, riverfront suburb of West End. Located in an inner-suburban area that is experiencing considerable urban regeneration, the scheme has developed out of an in-depth analysis of local planning strategies and urban renewal policies being formalised and debated within Brisbane.
The proposal involves eight ‘terrace-style’ houses (three & four bedrooms over two storeys) to the riverfront boundary with a seven storey apartment building located on the rear street boundary facing the river. A large open space that results between the buildings offers recreation spaces including reflection and swimming pools and large shaded lawn spaces.
The design is formed by a collection of sweeping and billowing forms with the apartments arranged for complete privacy, yet allowing full advantage to be taken of both the immediate and long distance views.
