Challenge

Located in the prestige suburb of Toowong, the new Banc development will be just four kilometres from the Brisbane CBD.

 

The challenge was to design a 15-20 storey high-end luxury residential tower on the banks of the Brisbane River.

Solution

WMK’s design features 33 high-end residences, called 'sky homes', over 15 levels. Residents enter through a basement grotto, separating the entry from the ground level units – allowing the units to be uncompromised in their amenity.

 

Each sky home, averaging a generous 220 square metres in size, offers private lift-to-door access. Due to its clever design, all residences will feature panoramic river views.

 

The building’s exoskeleton references the bridges of Brisbane, providing a striking modern edge, while its palette brings elegance and complements the interiors. 

 

Exclusive residents' facilities include an infinity pool, barbecue terrace, lush gardens, and a dedicated wine cellar and tasting room.

Outcome

The resulting design by WMK is a world-class example of elegant modern style overlooking Brisbane River.

 

“The building is a statement of sophistication,” said WMK Architect, Russell Grady. “The simplicity and elegance of the development will present an iconic address to the Toowong end of Coronation Drive.”

 

Banc's bespoke design reflects its prized location and sets a new benchmark for inner-Brisbane apartment living.
