BUILDER: MATRIX CONSTRUCTION

The Mosaic Apartments development features a residents-only rooftop facility and an abundance of green spaces. IRS was contracted to install several features during its construction.

The first installation features a vertical trellis to the exterior of the Mosaic Hotel lobby. A series of single cable assemblies run from the planter bed up to a semi-transparent canopy structure that softens the harsh midday sun.

The second is a bold feature canopy that provides shade to the southern fa├žade office terrace on Ann St. Stainless steel Trellis cables span a length of 15 metres along the structure. This feature green element is visible from the pedestrian and vehicle traffic of Ann St.

Lastly the roof top terrace on the 17th floor which overlooks Brisbane City and New Farm incorporated 5 column trellises into the design. These components introduce varying levels to the garden and barbeque areas. The passionfruit vine planted at each base proves to be a resilient plant as it withstands the harsh environment at such extreme heights.
