Wooloowin Townhouses is a sophisticated residential development in Brisbane’s inner north. Located on the old Sisters of Mercy site, the master planned community delivers a combination of townhouses and apartments within a historically significant framework. A heritage laundry, catholic convent and significant plantings have been retained and had their importance reinforced through the landscape design.
A public park to the Chalk St interface reinforces view lines towards the heritage laundry and provides opportunity for public appreciation. A central axis feeds off the park into a central plaza where further interpretation of the site’s heritage is on display.
Generous streetscape design has been employed throughout the development. Large canopy trees line internal streets and punctuate a modern architectural language. Passive recreation spaces also activate the streetscape, providing residents with reflective opportunities and meeting points.
