Type of development: Multi unit
Expected completion date: Mar 2009
“Brisbane has flourished in recent years with a flux of development that takes advantage of the Brisbane River and the amenity that comes with living close to the city heart. This has creating a demand for smaller scale, more boutique developments as an adjunct the many large scale towers in the CBD and city fringe.
“The Cliffs” is an example of the evolution of this new apartment typology. The design objective is to provide a high quality living environment which combines the convenience of inner city living with the quality and attention to detail of an individual house. Smaller scale development of this type provides a choice for those seeking “quality over quantity” with an appreciation of design resolution, quality finish and detail.
“The Cliffs” offers living spaces that are a haven for the residents from the activity of the area whilst contributing to the diversity of the immediate area.
“The result is seven residences over four levels, with private lift access and city views to the north. Each apartment is separated into public and private zones. Living spaces flow to the generous decks through bifold doors. The two apartments per floor arrangement allows for full cross ventilation of the apartments, reducing the need for air conditioning.
“Common facilities for the residents include a large pool deck area, gym, bbq and associated deck spaces. The penthouse includes its own roof top pool and bar area.
“Apartment interiors feature spotted gum timber floors, timber veneers, stone and glass in a clean and contemporary palette. Externally, stone cladding combined with Alucobond panels and Evergreen glazing articulate the façade. The material selections are low maintenance and understated.”
