A development application has been submitted by Sekisui House for the third stage of West Village which is known as ‘The Eaves’ (Mollison Park and retail precinct), located at 91 and 111 Boundary Street, West End.
Designed by Bureau Proberts, the development involves the construction of a three-storey retail and restaurant building as well as a series of urban commons.
According to the development application, ‘The Eaves’ recognises the role of streets and parks to create thriving places for gathering and recreation.
“The edges of ‘The Eaves’ are designed as vital civic components, creating legible connections through Boundary and Mollison Streets to the West Village Precinct whilst providing permeable frontages and making shelter and landscape.” – Bureau Proberts

“The Eaves is a unique building, entirely derived of its place. Brisbane’s Subtropical climate, its landscape and necessity for shade are catered for in the striking elemental form, the
Landscape Arbour and bespoke architectural screen. As the architecture amplifies the heritage qualities of the precinct it offers a place for the local community to gather in municipal surroundings.” – Bureau Proberts
