More Than 3 Residential Storeys - Multi-Residential Projects
Commissioned by the Queensland Government, BRD Group were proud to be a part of this housing project.
The resulting complex integrates into the surrounding residential neighbourhood by incorporating a faceted form and small-scale design elements such as screens and awnings.
The units were positioned around a central circulation core, allowing each unit a balcony and to encourage daylight levels and cross-ventilation. Every floor included one fully adaptable unit, with the remaining units semi-adaptable, maximising maximum practicality.
With longevity and durability in mind, concrete blocks were used for the primary structure and steel used for the framed roof. These simple structural materials assisted to expedite the construction time.
