118 Racecourse Road, Ascot
Silk’s architecture oozes confidence, with its strong lines and interplay of contracting materials. Concrete, timber, matte black metal work, glass and stone are deftly combined to create highly articulated facades with great street presence.
Silk’s contemporary lines and airy brightness are an inspired expression of Brisbane’s unique sub-tropical lifestyle.
Indoor and outdoor spaces are linked by expansive full-height glass. Kitchens are designed to be smart as well as function with stone top bench, Miele appliances and option colour choices to customise the joinery.
Every detail at Silk is designed for a luxe, laid-back lifestyle and this is reflected throughout every room The bedrooms feature quality carpets and the bathrooms features contemporary tapware and tiling.
Care has been taken to integrate this bold new building with its streetscape. The sculptural free-form projections of facade help to reduce its scale. Existing trees will be retained. A street canopy over the footpath will provide weather protection at ground level and draw people towards the building.
Thoughtful design provides practical ways to differentiate Silk’s private and public aspects. The main retail and commercial spaces face Racecourse Road, where Silk will have an active street presence featuring cafes and outdoor dining. Above, apartments predominantly have a north orientation along quiet, tree lined Beatrice Terrace.
Perfectly positioned at the northern end of Racecourse Road, Silk is ideally located. It is within close proximity to prestigious private and public schools, a short walk from the Brisbane River, and ideally located for travelling to the Brisbane Airport and the Brisbane CBD.
