Farringford Apartments, Tennyson Reach, Brisbane, QLD

Tennyson Reach is a thriving residential community consisting of high quality apartment buildings and is located on the Brisbane River, eight kilometres southeast of the Brisbane central business district. The apartments have uninterrupted views of the river and is situated next to the Queensland Tennis Centre.

Project Design Brief

The topography of the sloping site towards the Brisbane River raised some concerns for designers, as they wanted to ensure that any surface water runoff from the large areas of pavement and roads surrounding the tennis centre would be captured before entering the apartment site. The drainage system needed to be efficient, safe for high volumes of pedestrians and robust for vehicles.
