272 Hedges Avenue: An apartment tower in Mermaid Beach inspired by an architectural legend

Written: 10 September 2018, Updated: 18 July 2019

If you think 272 Hedges Avenue looks familiar, then you’d be right: the 44-storey apartment building was, in part, designed by Rafael Contreras (one part of Contreras Earl, with Australian architect Monica Earl making up the other half), who studied under the legendary architect Zaha Hadid. Her influence on the building can be seen its lack of corners and wavy, the interconnected feel of the exterior, which is something a little different in Mermaid Beach.
