Howard Smith Wharves
This was a design competition to rejuvenate the wharf area at the northern end of the city. The brief for the design was to make Howard Smith Wharves’ an open space creating an opportunity for a unique inner city green space, with a beautiful landscape. Cycle connections needed to be maintained incorporating a dedicated cycle track through the precinct is being constructed. This is a space for the people. The developers wanted to ensure that the building which could be a 5 star hotel was low scale, below the height of the cliffs and with lower building density than allowable under Brisbane City Council’s code.
