#Legacy Way Ventilation Outlet

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA

Brisbane City Council, Transcity and landscape design team, RPS Group, worked
with UAP to design a large scale façade treatment for the exterior of Legacy Way’s ventilation outlets. Located at the eastern and western portals of the tunnel, (the western in Brisbane’s verdant Mount Coot-tha Botanical Gardens), the outlet has a bold presence within the green public spaces.

Drawing inspiration from the patterns found within the vascular systems of local plants, the façade design conceals the precast concrete cylinder it encases. It compliments the organic nature of the surrounding garden environment, symbolically representing the ventilation role of shaft for the tunnel’s underground infrastructure below.
