Mitchell apartments within the Cutters landing precinct of the Brisbane riverside suburb of New Farm has a 4 core lobby built over 15 years ago.  The clients’ brief was to make the main lobby space more functional, provide a meeting space for the body corporate, and space for owner social functions. The original existing water feature and natural timber floor was creating ongoing maintenance costs and they engaged Base for a proposal to redesign the 3 ground floor lobbies, typical lobbies, and update all lift interiors. Increasing material texture, visual warmth and lighting interest are the primary design focus for this upgrade.
