Wow, an interesting design for sure. It kind of reminds me of the exclamation point from big lots…

New residential development Brooklyn on Brookes offers international flair yet exudes its sense of place in Brisbane, Australia 

Conceptually adopting the New York ‘style’ of living, in collaboration with Metro Property Group Brooklyn on Brookes is a unique residential development designed by global architects, Woods Bagot.

Located in the heart of Brisbane’s stylish Fortitude Valley, the project will offer a unique accommodation style - one that celebrates the cosmopolitan lifestyle of Brisbane’s inner city.

“Born from a desire to celebrate the surroundings and its inhabitants, the design for Brooklyn on Brookes is a direct response to its immediate urban landscape,” said Mark Damant, Principal, Woods Bagot.

Speaking to its sense of place, the design relates to its immediate scale and context complementing the historical texture and form of Brookes Street and current retail edge of Ann Street.

“The acknowledgement of the wider block and its urban context is inspired by the ‘New York’ approach to the design - presenting the building as a series of closely related individual towers, rather than a microcosm of a city,” continued Mark Damant.
