Altura West Village, set to be the tallest tower in Sekisui House's West End, Brisbane masterplan development of a landmark heritage village, has focused on its health and wellbeing of its residents with every design step.

The most impressive is the rooftop, which core principle, according to Matthew Durning, principle landscape architect at RPS Landscaping, is to promote the residents' health and well being.

"There's different elements that relate to the senses, especially in the vegetation" Durning said.

"Rosemary and lavender plants heighten the smell as residents move out to the rooftop."

The aim of the rooftop, aptly titled the Wellness Regeneration Zone, was to create a space for residents to unwind physically and mentally.

There will be a fitness infinity pool as well as a heated magnesium plunge pool, a detoxifying sauna, sunken fire pit spaces and an outdoor kitchen.

When construction is completed, forecast for late 2022, there will be weekly rooftop yoga and tai chi classes on the roof, surrounded in the 600 sqm of lush landscaped gardens.

"[The amenities] are elements that when you come out on to the rooftop, you feel relaxed, and you feel like you’ve walked out in to a place that’s like no other," Durning suggested.

"The rooftop will be a new benchmark in Brisbane." Durning said. 

Away from the roof will be a shared electric bike service, exclusive for residents.

Carr Design Managing Director, Chris McCue, said a lot of the interiors are driven by a real connection, a visible connection to nature.

Atlura is West Village's tallest residential tower at 22 levels, part of the $1.1 billion redevelopment precinct in Brisbane's West End.

The mixed-use commercial, retail and residential precinct sees the historic Peter's Ice Cream factory, dating back to the late 1920s, as part of the redevelopment.
