On a riverfront site in Bulimba, Brisbane, The Boatyard is a boutique four storey multi-residential development.
With four separate building volumes set within linked garden and courtyard spaces, the project is an attempt to create both private and shared outdoor rooms at varying scales.
The planning arrangement is intended to create oblique views to the river from all of the apartments, and deeply-set horizontal windows act to frame these views as well as providing solar control. The horizontal lines, curved parapets and use of timber are intended to evoke thoughts of the boats produced in the boatbuilding workshop that previously stood on the site.
The 27 dwellings vary between generously sized two bedroom apartments and large, family sized four bedroom homes. All of the apartments face both north and south, and therefore look both inward – to the lushly planted courtyard – and outward – to the river and street. Timber screens create private outdoor spaces for all residents, and operable panels within the window system allow for natural ventilation.
