Design practice Conrad Gargett have created a proposal for a sculptural mixed-use complex in the Brisbane suburbs of Queensland, Australia. Sited in Lutwyche, the project aims to become an integrated development built to accommodate an ageing population in Queensland. Dubbed Lamington Markets, the design overlays public amenities and commercial spaces with local recreation space.
As Conrad Gargett states, the development idea began as a typical transit-oriented mixed-use development, incorporating market retail, SoHo housing, cinemas, commercial spaces, and residential apartment mix. The development caught the attention of retirement living operators, and transformed to address a gap in accommodation options for seniors in the local region. The apartments are sized and planned to universal design requirements, ensuring circulation spaces and accessibility for the mobility-challenged; they can also be easily retrofitted with home support fixtures to allow ageing-in-place. The Lamington Markets building includes two residential towers atop the commercial complex below.
A hand-carved treasure, pure elegance
Every kitchen is characterized by a craft-made that distinguishes the uniqueness of this model. Finishes and materials bring your mind back to smooth and velvety surfaces to feel,whose style is interpreted in a modern key. The programme is plenty of models, from the lacquer version with golden finishes, to the ash wood version with burgundy red, sky-blue, carbon, white or off-white paintings. Imperial also includes different matt lacquer versions in different finishes, such as patinated, antique and vintage; fine gold and silver decorations are also available. All the ornamental elements are decorated by hand in imperial style; some of them are capitals, cornices, hoods, cymas.
Imperial is a combination of tradition, passion and design where natural elements, as stones, are melted with artisan ornaments

Architecture is woven into the fabric of the Columbus community and is symptomatic of a larger vision – an aspiration to achieve excellence. This is echoed in IwamotoScott’s innovation and collaborative design process, making spaces that are functional, distinctive and beautiful. — Mary Chandler, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility for Cummins and CEO of the Cummins Foundation.
