APARTMENTS ON ALEXANDRIA

Project Date: November, 2018 (Year 3, Semester 2)

Location: Bowen Hills, QLD

Type: Mixed-use multi-residential apartments

No. dwellings: 52 units (80 dwellings per hectare)

Apartments on Alexandria are located within the historic and cultural precinct of Bowen Hills, Brisbane. The design responds to the rich historic and geographic context of its surroundings, with a heavy focus on social connectivity. Centred around this concept, the apartments deliver a seamless integration of communal spaces, commercial services and residential living catering for all ages and demographics. The three domains of sustainability - social, environmental and economical have been addressed in conjunction with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The building facade mimics the natural land and water formations within the Bowen Hills area, thus forming a visual and symbolic connection to the historic surroundings. All dwellings feature a view out to the RNA Showgrounds.

Single and double room dwellings

All dwelling configurations are centred around the climatic principles of architectural design. In response to Brisbane's sub-tropical climate, the dwellings are designed to maximise natural daylighting and cross ventilation.
