Maison, GRAYA’s first foray into multi-residential housing, was a decisive success with all five residences of the building selling out before its completion. Maison was designed by Joe Adsett Architects and built in the leafy suburb of New Farm. The building’s exterior makes a proud statement, with striated levels, rounded corners and a tiered display of lush greenery spilling over each floor’s balcony. Inside, Maison is a very contemporary kind of chic. It is calm and soft, with blonde timber, pale stone and gentle curves. Open space, natural light and stunning views of the Brisbane CBD are all key elements of the apartments too.

Following on from Maison’s success, GRAYA is embarking on a series of luxury residential buildings in some of Brisbane’s most sought after riverside locations. Canvas is the first in the series and is in Bulimba, on Turrbal Country. The symmetry of the building’s exterior feels sleek and modern. Converging curves and dramatic cantilevers divide residences with private, sheltered balconies. Again, each balcony is adorned with dense tropical greenery. GRAYA displays a knack for location scouting, with another breathtaking view of Brisbane’s CBD from the site – and especially from the vantage point of the crystal blue rooftop pool. Beams of natural light and a cool, grey colour pallete blanket the apartment interiors, with dream-like effects.

Before long, GRAYA will extend the invitation to share in the company’s vision for luxury living, with Canvas’ two, three and four bedroom apartments available on the market soon. Building on a reputation for quality and indulgence, GRAYA is contributing to elevating the Brisbane lifestyle one development at a time.
