A new $51m West End apartment development ‘Bohemia’ by Turrisi Properties pays homage to the area’s industrial history and its modern, reinvigorated future through responsive architecture.
Located in the heart of the village on Jane Street, the apartments are part of the true West End, overlooking the character residential that defines its eclectic integrity.
Designed by ROTHELOWMAN, the 94 apartments feature a singular tower with a dual façade, reflecting two elements of the remnant character that defines West End.
On one side, the apartment exterior depicts the warehouses and factories of old West End with a jagged ‘saw-tooth’ roof pattern.
In contrast, the adjacent façade features white timber panels referencing the remnant timber and tin workers’ cottages that have characterised Brisbane since the interwar period.
Bohemia will comprise a mixture of one, two and three bedrooms over eight storeys, tucking neatly into the apex of West End’s existing structures and streetscapes.
“This development is particularly personal to West End, referencing elements of the character that have long attracted residents to call it home,” Turrisi Properties Director Gaetano Turrisi says.
“The formerly industrial West End has seen extensive changes over the past 20 years with urban renewal, leading to particular demand for high-quality apartment developments such as Bohemia,” Turrisi says.
Spacious balconies and terraces provide a selection of vistas to residents, and a view of iconic Mount Coot-tha is available from one of Bohemia’s two rooftop areas.
The building’s site context also reflects the diversity of the true West End, at just 450m from Boundary Street’s live music bars and cafes, and 100 metres from the greenery of Davies Park, home to one of Brisbane’s largest farmer’s markets.
