The Melbourne is a Brisbane project that will see a new 20 storey residential tower on Brisbane’s Southbank.
November 17th, 2015
Melbourne Street in Brisbane has always served as an important link between the Southbank and the central business district areas. It’s long stood as one of the major gateways to the city, and a major part of the city deserves a major project.
This is where Tony Owen Partners steps in. The Melbourne will stand as a world-class retail destination, and will be matched by nearby Fish Lane, which will be served by all new cafes and bars, expressing a vibrant dining laneway culture, which the city of Melbourne is known for. A shared paved zone with outdoor dining space will be in between and will be connected through an on site retail link.
The tower itself has a unique expression, derived from both the functionality of the units, and the location of Melbourne Street. Predominantly glass, the building has been design to quite literally reflect the urban expression of nearby CBD. The tower plan maximises the views from the units to both the river and central business district.
The design results in a stepping form, both maximising the number of units with access to the North East, and undoubtedly eye catching from the ground. The Melbourne Street façade has been designed with inspiration from the rippled, undulating shapes of the exhibition centre, with the glass sheets on the below podium echoing this rippled pattern.
