Flow

The Flow apartment project is a high density
multi-residential project in Brisbane’s innercity,
riverfront suburb of West End.
Located in an inner-suburban area that
is experiencing considerable urban
regeneration, the scheme has developed
out of an in-depth analysis of local planning
strategies and urban renewal policies being
formalised and debated within Brisbane at
present.
The proposal involves 8 “terrace-style”
houses (3 & 4 bedrooms over 2 storeys)
to the riverfront boundary with a 7 storey
apartment building located on the rear street
boundary facing the river. A large open
space that results between the buildings
offers recreation spaces including reflection
and swimming pools and large shaded lawn
spaces.
The design is formed by a collection of
sweeping and billowing forms with the
apartments arranged for complete privacy,
yet allowing full advantage to be taken of
both the immediate and long distance views.
The plan form also incorporates generous
outdoor living areas and bedrooms to ensure
the enjoyment and comfort of the outdoor
sub-tropical lifestyle and enable 270 degree
views throughout. The expansive views take
in the Brisbane River, the mountains of the
D’Aguilar and Taylor Ranges to the west
and the skyline of the Brisbane CBD to the
north-east.
The scheme’s architectural character draws
on the “between wars”, West End apartment
“Art Moderne”/”Art Deco” character and
typology and is also derived from the
streamlined, simple and functional curves
of the modern and traditional river vessels;
a recognisable and ingrained reference in a
city defined by the strong meandering curves
of its river.
