Due to a past referral, icubed were asked to assist owner David Zhong to deliver an infill unit development in Taringa.
Flood mitigation was a key design challenge for this project. The units and maneuvering areas span diagonally over a large council storm water pipe and flood plain which allows water to cross the site. To alleviate this issue, the units and maneuvering areas were designed suspended on a bondek slab and steel supporting frames raising them above any potential water interaction.
The design and construction team had to deal with a difficult site given the subsurface water and challenging access, however all issues were overcome to deliver this unique development.
