A new development in Brisbane’s inner-south is transforming Woolloongabba into a modern hub, fit for the city’s young professionals.

    Retail Laneway

    Eden Lane is a unique four-staged mixed-use development between Hubert and Gibbon Streets, Woolloongabba. The four buildings are harmoniously connected by an activated retail laneway and provides a protected and well considered public realm. Its purpose to provide a safe and enjoyable collective thoroughfare was achieved using natural material selection, landscaping and public artworks. This allowed for a highly collaborative procurement process between architect, builder, artists and artisan tradespeople to achieve an internal focal point and communal hub.

    Built Environment

    The initial conceptual basis for the project was to create a landscaped ‘gorge’ carving through the site connecting Hubert and Gibbon Streets. With the major built form of the four unique apartment buildings being pushed to the street edges, the concept of the gorge expands centrally to create protected public realms extending up and away from the laneway.

    The gorge has been enhanced through the considered design of verdant landscape combined with whimsical artwork, signage, bespoke lighting and architectural elements to offer a personalised and finely detailed series of public and communal spaces.

    Recreation Zones

    The use of well-considered public spaces with abundant and easily accessible communal recreation zones encourages personal interaction. By directly engaging with local craftspeople there’s been a unique approach to the use of conventional materials. Architecture as an expression of key landscape ideals in an intense urban setting was explored broadly in the design process. The approach resulted in a strong sense of individuality within a commercial development.
