The development was for 23 two and three bedroom units in the inner city suburb of West End. The proposed development provides an inspirational design that is well suited to, and embraces the benefits of, Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate. The development provides a direct design response to the New World City Design Guide – Buildings that Breathe which was released by Brisbane City Council in 2016 and that illustrates best-practice design benchmarks for development in Brisbane’s subtropical climate.

The West End Residences showcase the city’s urban environment and outdoor lifestyle. The building is designed as a permeable structure open to natural light and air to capture ambient light and cooling breezes through its open corridors and stairways, with large open deck and balcony spaces orientated where possible to capture panoramic views. There is a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces and a roof terrace designed for use across all seasons and suitable for both individuals and groups alike to enjoy the spectacular city views.

Place Design Group were engaged to facilitate the statutory planning approvals for the development, which involved detailed consultation with Council to achieve a high quality boutique unit development on a complex site in West End.
