Zaha Hadid Architects’s Grace on Coronation in Brisbane
Zaha Hadid Architects designed these three residential towers that taper at the end to preserve and coexist with the Middenbury House, a heritage-listed 1860s house which will act as a part of the site’s extensive parkland precinct.
The project is located on the former Australian Broadcasting Corporation site in Toowong, 4 kilometres west of Brisbane’s Central Business District.
According to Zaha Hadid Architects the Grace on Coronation design provides 486 apartments in three residential towers, eight villas and 7,300sqm of landscaped riverfront public parklands.
Sunland Managing Director, Sahba Abedian, said the proposed development will breathe new life into the historic riverfront site. “Our vision is to create a vibrant urban village which sensitively activates its urban and riverfront context through compelling architecture and landscape design. Importantly, it is a vision that opens up the site to the broader community through the creation of expansive public parklands, a riverside viewing platform and the transformation of Middenbury into a meaningful public space.”
Zaha Hadid Architects said: “The design tapers each structure to minimize their footprint and open the riverfront to the public; creating a vibrant civic space for Toowong within a new riverside park.
According to Sunland Group the project is a vision of extraordinary presence. A harmonious blend of incomparable architectural elegance, vibrant urban parklands and heritage conservation adjoining the Brisbane river in towing. This stunning proposed development features three sculptural residential towers set amongst landscaped parklands.
