Wintergarden is the lifestyle hub at the heart of Brisbane CBD, where leading brands and a range of experiences inspire people to shop and live with creativity and individuality.
ISPT’s Wintergarden in Brisbane received a warm welcome from shoppers and the media alike when the redeveloped landmark retail centre opened in March 2012.
The Buchan Group’s design introduces two parallel malls that visually connect Queen and Elizabeth Streets and invite exploration. A series of internal secondary malls join these primary links, creating distinctive precincts. The main feature mall cuts a void through the building, exposing the retail levels and offering the customer a point of reference.
Abundant natural light highlights the 700-seat food court, glazed bridges and natural surface treatments. Unifying the architectural, interior and graphic design is an original fractal pattern, present in elements at all scales, including stone floors, ceiling features, signage, bespoke joinery and furniture. Gently graded walkways have replaced the original entry stairs and create a seamless transition between Wintergarden, Queen Street Mall, Elizabeth and Edward Streets. Facade screens were designed by Studio 505.
Stage 1 of Wintergarden opened in 2011 and Stage 2 was completed in May 2012.
