McLachlan & Ann is a mixed use, master planned development located on the fringe of the city in Fortitude Valley. The site is divided by a new public lane that provides opportunity for active ground spaces for the growing population.
The building edges include public art and facade treatments that provide a point of reference, an address and invitation to explore a clear message that this is public space. The buildings facades provide a distinctive identity for the precinct through the evocative colours of the local mango trees that evokes memories of Brisbane’s backyards, the heritage of the Valley and hidden artworks to provide a sense of memory for people who explore the lane.
