Project and details

Mt Gravatt East Apartments
Type: apartment development
Architects: Manish, Tse Ying
Year: 2016 - current
Scale: 630m2
The challenge: Providing required amount of units while ensuring proposal complies with height and setback limitations.
Our solution: We first worked out the best car park and lobby configuration on ground level. As council prefers the top level to be further setback in, we have achieved that in terms of layout and external façade design it so that it is barely visible from street level. Detailed design elements such as vertical fins are used throughout the building to break up the horizontal mass. A strong frontage and identity is given to the proposal via a wide feature frame to front façade.
