Sales Centres, Displays and project launches

DC8 Studio has had the privilege of being involved with several Sales and Marketing launches, and sharing this experience with our clients and collaborators is a rewarding journey.

Recently, DC8 Studio designs have been part of the launches of Aqua at Bondi Junction, Ecco at Ripley, Boggo Road in Brisbane and Vision at Hope Island.

These experiences, designs, and collaborations are all shaped by the particular story the Developer wishes to tell. The journey of the sales track begins its evolution upon arrival at the site and shapes the message by means of controlling views, graphic content, marketing collateral and the atmosphere of the spaces. This requires careful collaboration across a multitude of disciplines in order to best showcase the project. Read more about these ideas below and in the individual project blog articles.

The energy that the whole delivery and development team put in to readying these projects for launch days are impressive with a hive of activity including finalising the building, furnishing, installation of marketing material, sales training, landscaping, cleaners and the last touch-ups. Come opening day when the public arrive, the fruits of all these labours come to fruition in the energy of the spaces and the project vision that is portrayed.

DC8 Studio congratulates all the teams involved with these projects and wishes them every success in their endeavors.

DC8 Studio and Sekisui House collaborate on the Ecco Ripley Sales Centre - Shawood inspired.

Sekisui House has launched the Stage 1 precinct of its master planned community “Ecco” in the Ripley Valley growth corridor outside Ipswich, Queensland. DC8 Studio collaborated with the team at Sekisui House on both the master plan as well as the Sales and Information Centre.

The Sales Centre design showcases parts of the developers’s proprietory “Shawoodpost and beam prefabricated structural system which is expressed through the building interior to create a warmth and rhythm, which inform the design concept, material selections and use of the internal space. This philosophy, along with the surrounding natural landscape, the Project Vision and the building’s location along Ripley Road guided the design of the overall building within its context.

Reimagining Kurilpa - See our vision - Join the Discussion 

See our vision of the Kurilpa Masterplan and Join the Discussion

Our collaborative dialogue covers a range of topics. We considered the master plan VISION put forward by Brisbane City Council and the Queensland State Government.

We have responded with some thoughts and challenges to the proposal. The site is a valuable asset to the city as it has a long cultural heritage, and it is on a prime section of our river plus its close proximity to the CBD. This land is extremely valuable, so the plan needs to be both respectful and aspirational.

Firstly, we will take the opportunity to welcome this vision as it aspires to a Global Quality of Life. We accept the challenge of reimagining Kurilpa. We believe Brisbane should be in the top 5 of the well respected Monocle Global Quality of Life Survey. We are currently at number 25.

Kurilpa is a once only opportunity for the city of Brisbane to cement its place in the list of true world cities and as such must be given deep and thoughtful consideration as to how that opportunity will be realised. Our DC8Studio + MacroPlan Dimasi team has studied the draft master plan and we believe that for Kurilpa to realise its potential it must be a precinct that is investable, dynamic and be a draw card for the people of Brisbane and from around the globe.
