The product of a triumphant partnership with design firm DKO, The Prescott draws on local historical references to create something refreshing and new while honouring timeless architecture and materiality.
A strong emphasis on landscaping breathes life into each facade, with Residents soon to benefit from exceptional rooftop recreation spaces, including a pool, gymnasium, and multiple dining and entertaining zones that capitalise on priceless, panoramic views of the Brisbane River, Mount Coot-Tha and the city skyline.
Our approach to sustainable practices is holistic, looking through a social, economic and environmental lens to craft a residence that is highly sympathetic to its surroundings and, ultimately, a positive addition to the local community.
Some features that contributed to The Prescott’s 6 Leaf EnviroDevelopment certification include:
- Choosing a location that is fundamental to delivering a sustainable outcome, with proximity to urban and lifestyle amenity.
- An optimal building orientation that maximises city views and a northern aspect while minimising exposure to the western sun.
- Selecting environmentally-conscious building materials with a low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) rating and incorporating recycled materials wherever possible.
- Maximising cross-ventilation opportunities through intelligent apartment layouts and elevated ceilings.
- Full-height glazing and operable windows will allow abundant fresh breezes and natural light, reducing energy costs.
- Incorporating sustainability initiatives beyond regulatory requirements, including LED lighting and solar panels.
- Energy-efficient lifts will result in no machine rooms, intelligent automation, and standby modes.
- Installing CO monitors in The Prescott’s basement to maintain optimal air quality for Residents.
- Lush and extensive deep planting at ground level and abundant greenery up the building facade and upper floors will foster a vibrant ecosystem and positively impact air quality while enhancing The Prescott’s aesthetic appeal.
- Incorporating native plant species into the rooftops landscaping will reduce the need for additional watering and fertiliser.
- Water-wise initiatives, including a rainwater harvesting system, will nourish The Prescott’s abundant planting year-round and reduce the building’s reliance on external water supply.
The Prescott’s construction is well underway, with a projected completion date of early 2025. No expense has been spared to create a collection of homes that are as beautiful as they are comfortable and sustainable.
