Located within the Byron Street precinct along the Brisbane River, the Arkhefield design features luxurious riverfront apartments and terrace homes which celebrate Brisbane’s subtropical climate.
Stockland Newport Retirement Living
Stockland Newport Retirement Living is a place which captures a uniquely Queensland way of life and plays an active and important role in the local community. Arkhefield focused on creating beautiful places for residents and their families to socialise and connect with large apartments designed to create open and inviting homes for residents.
The Smith Collective is a landmark precinct and represents Queensland’s largest multi-residential project ever undertaken in a single stage. The design by joint venture group AAA – Arkhefield, ARM and Archipelago with Lat27 – for Grocon brings together hinterland and coastline to capture the essence of the subtropical climate emblematic of the Gold Coast.
Student One on Wharf Street
The Student One on Wharf Street tower is one of three in the heart of the Brisbane CBD which offer premium student accommodation geared for learning. Capturing 753 rooms over 40 levels the design responds to the brief for a tower that was safe and secure, compact, robust, fun and collaborative.
Atria at Hamilton Reach
Atria at Hamilton Reach is a master planned residential development that focuses on lifestyle, liveability and connection to the surrounding landscape. The Arkhefield design captures the sub-tropical climate over 159 apartments and terrace homes to create a dynamic community environment.
Goodna Social Housing
Our brief was to design 12 single bedroom units for residents of social housing for the Department of Housing and Public Works. This was to be achieved by providing rational, cost effective, compact units which are adaptable, robust and capitalise on the site’s elevation and aspect. Units were to meet gold and platinum LHA standards with an emphasis on flexibility and livability.
A look at future housing: Millennials vs Generation Z
The housing market appears to be ripe for disruption. It’s gathering momentum around a perfect storm of a housing affordability crisis necessitating significant rental reform, and a large Millennial population, soon to include Generation Z who are demanding alternatives.
Living alone, together
Generation Z has now officially overtaken Millennials as the largest age group. They will comprise 32% of the global population in 2019. They desire independence, but are ultimately financially pragmatic and motivated by security. Is there a way to provide authentic high quality living experiences that align with their values?
