Stockwell asked Archipelago to review, reposition, and document their premier residential offer to the market – Riverpoint on Ferry; a development of 50 high-end apartments across two buildings overlooking the Toowong reach of the Brisbane River.
Riverpoint on Ferry is stage 3 of an ongoing, medium density inner-city development based on a design and development approval going back to 2005.
When approached in 2012, our initial task was to re-position the existing scheme to reflect the evolution of market expectations and conditions since the initial approval. This involved substantial redesign of the internal apartment layouts, flipping of the building access / lobbies, redesign of the basement carparking areas and modifications to the external building facades. Operable screening was also applied to the façade to mediate the conflict of western orientation and river views.
A major challenge was the retention of the existing significant hoop pine in the north west corner of the site.
Archipelago provided design and construct tender documentation to the developer and remained engaged by Stockwell to provide advice and continuity throughout construction.
