Project 2015 – 2018

Scape South Bank, South Brisbane, is a student accommodation development located in close proximity to the vibrant South Bank precinct.

With three street frontages on Vulture, Merivale and Tribune Streets, the building contains 783 student apartments over 12 to 15 levels.

The building provides students with superior accommodation and amenities including a gymnasium, laundry, high-tech IT facilities and bicycle racks for 392 bicycles.

Additional amenities include social / breakout spaces, quiet study areas, outdoor terraces and a shared kitchen / dining area, creating a community environment for students.

The visually expressive architectural solution responds to Queensland’s sub-tropical climate with expressed shading fins.  The form consists of two buildings sitting on street edge bases, with setback taller blocks connected by a unique green bridge link.
