A development application has been submitted for the construction of a ten storey residential and retail development known as ‘Federal Residences’.
The development which has been designed by Joe Adsett Architects is located at 14 Maud Street, Newstead and has been proposed by Barr KP Pty Ltd.
The mixed-use development includes the retention and adaptive reuse of the ‘Goldsworthy and Perkins Boot Factory’ heritage building into a flexible use space such as ground floor retail.
According to the application, the Joe Adsett Architects design intention for this project is to generate an exciting opportunity for a new context of development in Newstead’s creative quarter.
“The architectural intention is to create an elegant response that celebrates and enhances the rectangular Georgian style through the sensitive use of raw materiality, sharp angles and bold curves to form a pleasing integration of style between the new and old buildings.”
“The use of rich timber battening, tinted glazing and precast concrete will complement the original brickwork of the heritage building.”
“The curving form of the contemporary tower allows for an opportunity to create a new addition to Brisbane’s rapidly growing laneway life, with the possibility of a cross-block link, allowing public engagement with an industrial heritage gem.” – Joe Adsett Architects
