High St, Lutwyche
This five storey building has 27 apartments with commercial on the lower floor. Two high end penthouse apartments grace the top rear with direct views to the city. There is a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, all generously sized. Some units on the ground floor have private courtyards whilst others have uninterrupted views of the Brisbane city skyline.
Sun shading is used in the facade to create interest and serve it's primary function whilst providing privacy. An elegant and efficient solution was created by investigating what each unit had to offer in terms of orientation for sun exposure and city views or spatial orientation and how this would affect room sizing.
