New Farm Mixed Use Container Project

0256_150256_110256_36This concept project sits on a prominent corner of Brunswick Street, in New Farm. It is zoned for centre activities and this projects includes ground floor retail and commercial, with upper floors of both short term and permanent residential. We are playing with the contrast of heavy rectilinear form of the containers and lightweight amorphous screening elements, and how this responds to the street corner. The scheme chooses not to comply with the adjacent buildings, which meet the corner with firm, full height, right-angle masonry.
