West End, the most kaleidoscopic example of Brisbane’s rich heritage, eclectic present and brilliant tomorrow, has a shimmering new focal point.
The South Brisbane Gas & Light Company was a robust landmark of industrial progress, a classic example of the stark grandeur of industrial architecture that valued form as much as function.
Originally built in 1885 to provide gas street lighting to a rapidly developing city, the decades rolled from one century to the next, until the shift to natural gas forced the closure of the outdated gasworks.
The shadows of industry that once fell over this extraordinary heritage site are long gone. In their place, glass sheathed living spaces will rise above the raw elements of the original structure and the lush green of private gardens.
With the innovation to bridge the past with the future and to create the best urban living environment today, Light+Co. Apartments is the residential address that has everything for you which combines the most important urban characteristics.
Light+Co. Apartments transform the classic lines and grandeur of the past’s industrial architecture into a stunning new interpretation of contemporary style and timeless beauty.
It takes architectural artistry to capture key elements of the old Gas & Light Company site and transpose them into design features that not only acknowledge but revitalise West End’s core characteristics.
Coarse red brick and grey corrugated metalwork frame the platform for over 4,500sqm of soft green landscaping and private gardens, translucent blue pools and light sandy coloured pathways.
Even the definitive circular rock carve-outs for the old gasholders provide practical design inspiration. Shade spills across gleaming BBQ facilities and elegant entertainment areas. Its distinctive yet effortless style set in a palette of colours where everything old is new again.
Light+Co. is designed to provide living areas with the expanse for you to create an interior that’s uniquely yours.
The extraordinary array of apartment configurations, elevations and outlooks give you the ability to choose the home that’s perfect for you.
Even more, this spaciousness also provides you the broader reach of living areas to enjoy the flexibility, tailored to the lifestyle you want.
This sense of space with natural light flowing throughout the apartment is a fundamental asset when it comes to adding the individual touches that create your unique living environment.
It’s designed to be uncluttered, to let the warmth of natural materials make light of urban living and act as the canvas for you to add your distinct colours and textural style to.
