Located on a corner block bound by Scott St and Main St in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, this site has a river side location directly opposite the Brisbane CBD. Previously occupied by a late 1950’s motel, purchasers Waterford Properties commissioned Jackson Teece to design a new iconic apartment building to provide single plate 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 90degree 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.
