Lumley Street, Cairns
The client’s brief was to design a 45-bed, student accommodation facility in a Character Precinct.
One design challenge was to blend the new development in with the Character Precinct and existing surrounding buildings. The design retained the building-style and effect, to the area and blends perfectly with neighbouring properties.
The new and renovated buildings were given design-appropriate embellishments to match the Character of Lumley Street.
The building design achieved an 8.8 Energy Star Rating.
Modern materials were used for easy maintenance and cleaning, whilst retaining the traditional Queenslander-style.
Each unit is well lit, well ventilated and provides enough privacy for the occupants to embark on serious study or enjoy a well-earned rest with friends. The living spaces are a good design mix of functionality and cosiness.
