Lucid Apartments offers an exclusive rooftop entertainment experience embracing the panoramic views over Brisbane from the mountain ranges to the west to the Brisbane City skyline and Southbank to the east.

The concept has been developed around the challenge of providing a variety of flexible spaces or “outdoor rooms” within a relatively small rooftop footprint. The design successfully achieves an elegant arrangement of rooms including a pool side lounge deck overlooking a seamless infinity edge swimming pool, the pool side grotto lounge with pool window, the exclusive sky room offering a luxurious entertainment experience, an outdoor bbq area, and a multi use dining and lounge terrace capturing the views.

The flexibility of the design was considered the first major driver in the conceptual design. The dining and lounge terrace overlooking the city allows smaller groups to claim sections for their individual relaxation and entertainment without the perception of encroaching into each others personal space. A glass of wine or an informal dinner in the evening overlooking the city skyline lights. This space can also facilitate large groups offering a unique elevated experience for major events such as River Fire or New Years eve Fireworks. This flexibility is offered across the entire rooftop terrace. The second major driver is the careful spatial arrangement of the “outdoor rooms”.

Residents are relaxing by the pool, enjoying the panoramic views, while a small group are lounging in the poolside grotto, a gathering of friends is taking place on the dining terrace, and a formal dinner is being held in the skyroom. All of which can coexist without each others experience being interrupted.

The key principle in this design is that although many people can live in the one building each can take away a unique memorable experience within a special space whether that be social, intimate, or individual.
