Moody and fresh, Escent picks up on the urban contrasts of its precinct, as it reflects movement in its waved façade.
Shiny veneers and industrial edges take Escent somewhere else – with tones reminiscent of Melbourne living. Its bold building fabrics and fluid lines add a fitting gloss to the area’s newest resident. The curvature of panels ground it with a flexible quality. Escent reflects a kind of European cool as it fits with revival character of the Brisbane’s West End.
Escent is a unique design solution to inner city living. The architectural form is a rhythmic and playful balance of proportional elements.
Dynamic movement is expressed in the articulated glazed envelope defining the living spaces which contrast the sleek elegant building frame. The exposed edges of floor plates and the masonry buttress walls act as bookends to define the building.
Carefully crafted with a series of open plan apartments, a harmonious affiliation exists between the architecture and interior design, which is graceful yet strong in presence. The kitchen and bathroom design expresses a sense of sophistication, offset by textural finishes and a rich, contrasting palette of materials. Rustic, natural elements are framed within smooth, contrasting edges creating an elegant industrial feel to the interior spaces.
