THE FABRIC OF

URBAN LIVING

////////////////////////

Corde Residences is a distinctive new addition to the historic texture of East Brisbane by QM Properties. Designed by leading architects ROTHELOWMAN, this eight-level apartment tower is the epitome of stylish and convenient urban living. Corde is a collection of 60 residences with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom floorplans, with a lushly landscaped private residents recreation deck, pool and ground level of retail.

QM Properties has an outstanding track record of successful property developments and is spearheading the gentrification of East Brisbane.

The development’s Manilla Street location puts everything within reach, including public transport, wide open green spaces, retail and dining. The design of Corde reflects the heritage of the surrounding area by integrating the design of character Brisbane homes and references to the maritime industry and Forsyth’s Rope Works into its design aesthetic. This rich tapestry of story and history provides a beautiful backdrop for ongoing urban renewal and beckons you to be part of the revival.

History

A riverside legacy

/////////////////////////
The Manilla Street area of East Brisbane has a richly textured history, reflected in surrounding Brisbane character homes, grand residences and maritime businesses. The name ‘Corde’, French for ‘rope’, pays homage to the automotive workshop, French Car Care, that previously occupied the site, and Forsyth’s Rope Works that supplied the river traders and other vessels with rope. This history is an integral part of the area’s character, such as the Forsyth’s Ropewalk lane, where the workers would stretch out lengths of freshly woven rope. This is one of the many heritage narratives of the area, giving the community deep roots, a strong sense of identity, and forming a solid foundation for future renewal and evolution.

Craft and inspiration

Drawing from the heritage of the area and its stories, the architecture of Corde is distinctively imbued with the essence of its historical context. Textural facade elements echo the ropemaker’s craft and provide a striking point of individuality.Curvaceous precast panels reference the sails of river craft and the extensive use of brickwork embeds Corde in its industrial surroundings. The refinement of the design is also seen in vertical greening elements and the organic softness of podium and rooftop plantings, which reflect the subtropical vegetation of East Brisbane’s many open spaces. Fixed and operable shading panels also add to the dynamic nature of the facade and added comfort for residents.

The rooftop recreation area’s landscaped outdoor space, pool, movie room, bbq, pizza oven, herb garden and private entertaining room, offers residents a truly unique place to escape and unwind while enjoying panoramic views over the city and river.

Internal

Without a doubt Corde’s most defining architectural feature is the operable bronze metallic screens that adorn the tower’s street and city facing facades. Their arrangement creates an active and ever-changing facade composition. The resulting effect of these profiled perforated screens interlocking and overlapping one another is the appearance of ‘fabric’ to the building; an abstract reference to the patterns and configurations born out of the rope sequencing and thread making process.

The apartment interiors seamlessly continue the articulation of the building exterior. Making reference to rope construction, the design incorporates a harmonious combination of angular forms and weave patterning. A simple palette of materials gives a bold contemporary approach along with a hint of industrial chic composed by the use of bronze metal. White walls and reflective surfaces allow light to penetrate the apartment for a spacious feel, whilst keeping a focus on impressive views.
