57 CORONATION DRIVE proposes an Rothelowman-led design which celebrates Brisbane’s past whilst envisioning its future.
The design is heavily influenced by traditional sub-tropical living experienced by Brisbane’s early settlers, and honours Brisbane City Council’s vision for the city as established in its New World City Design Guide: Buildings that Breathe.
Living greenery is a key feature OF THE DESIGN, with multiple garden terraces proposed to encourage shared space and communal living for all residents and visitors.
At the podium level, large open green spaces continue this sentiment with pavilions designed as an homage to traditional Queenslander-style homes with broad verandahs. The residential and serviced apartments would sit upon these pavilions, creating scale, air circulation and coolness while increasing visual connection from Quay Street through to the Brisbane River.
THE DESIGN RESPECTS Brisbane’s rich history by PROPOSING TO BRING new life to one of its oldest colonial-era riverfront homes AND IMPORTANTLY, TO MAINTAIN ITS ORIGINAL LOCATION AND SETTING.
Originally built in the 1800s, Davidson’s Residence has been hidden from public view for decades along Quay Street and is one of the few remaining examples of life in Brisbane during that time.
Taking pride of place within the project’s ground plane, this heritage home will play an integral role as hotel reception, welcoming visitors to the area and once again becoming part of the riverside streetscape.
A sprawling lawn would surround Davidson’s Residence, providing a generosity of space which establishes its prominence ON THE SITE and reclaims its connection to the Brisbane River.
