The Melbourne Residences in Brisbane
The Melbourne Residences, is a 20 storey building consisting of 200 units in Brisbane’s Southbank.
It contains retail and rooftop club including gym, pool, cinema and dining room.
The tower plan is driven by the desire to maximise the oblique views from the units to the river and CBD.
This results in a stepping form which maximises the number of units with access to the East. We derived inspiration from the ripple patterns created by the wind.
This ripple orders the stepping of the façade reflecting the interplay of the environment on the façade.
The tower has a unique undulating façade which ranges from zero to 4m. These facades contain operable glass screens to create wintergardens.
These wintergardens provide a second skin to maximise thermal efficiency and reduce energy use.
Melbourne street is becoming a fashionable retail address. We designed a 4 storey retail façade.
Retail connects the street via a through site link to Fish Lane which is being revitalised by art installations and cafes as a bohemian centre.
The client’s brief was to create a superior residential address and activate the street with world class retail.
