Having recently launched it’s latest project Lumina in Stones Corner, Brisbane developer Oakridge have their sights on their new project.
The Andrew Niven-founded private developer has lodged plans for The Pavillion in Upper Mount Gravatt.
A two-storey residence, which currently occupies the site, will be demolished to make way for three residential towers, set to comprise 144 apartments.
There’s a full mix of configurations; 52 one-beds, 72 two-bedroom apartments, and 20 three-bed offerings.
Oakridge engaged architects MAS to design the residences, which take on a sub-tropical design.
Towers one and three span the majority of the site, with a predominantly rectangular footprint, located along the south and north boundaries. The central tower, on the other hand, has a predominant square shape, aligning to the west boundary.
A central courtyard will be used as a common recreation space, with barbecue facilities and a swimming pool, which are threaded together with softened landscaping and meandering footpaths that arrives at each tower lobby.
Orientation and solar aspect are front of mind in the project, with deep balcony overhangs and fenestration to combat the effects of the Australian sun. The west orientated faces of the building are treated with louvred screens that work to both filter sunlight and add privacy to the western neighbouring complex.
A subdued and refined material palette including off form concrete coupled with black and white tones has been selected to allow the vertical greenery elements be the focal point of attention.
Timber tones have been utilised on balcony roof ceilings along with secluded and muted dark tones which accentuate the presence of the highly densely populated gum trees. Tinted and clear glazing is interwoven with dark structural elements, adding contrast and texture, while powder-coated elements accent the external envelope, either in vertical or horizontal orientations.
Access to the residential basement level occurs on the south side of the site, at the bottom end of Hibiscus Place, with the volumetric level transitioning between body, podium and basement to become a visual experience as well as tying into the verdant surrounds.
Offering a well-connected lifestyle, The Pavillion is situated approximately 11-kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD, and within walking distance to Griffith University and Westfield Mt Gravatt.
Oakridge are soon to demolish the landmark Freemason building in Stones Corner, replacing it with a 12-level glass-swathed tower with 97 apartments.
Lumina, at 17 Cleveland Street in Stones Corner, just south of the Woolloongabba Olympic precinct, will also feature two ground level retail spaces and an impressive rooftop amenity.
On the roof is a dedicated kids play area, with an acrylic or astro turfed floor which will be netted. There will be a roofed area for further activity, as well as two pools, a spa, private dining space with kitchen, barbecue areas, a communal garden, and a gym with a sauna.
NMDS Architecture has drawn up the plans for the tower, which has been orientated to take in extensive views. The bigger three-bedroom units, which are expected to appeal to the family demographic, face both the park and the city.
Lumina will also offer a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, to cater for all types of buyers, from investors and first home buyers to rightsizers, downsizers, and families.
