Zahra is elusive, chic, accomplished, elegant and admired.
Above all, Zahra is the driver of her own destiny.
Her friends? Like-minded women for whom New Farm is a hub of social life and joie de vivre. They come from all walks of life and mix in many and varied circles.
But they have one thing in common — a sense of place.
Zahra lives at 55 Oxlade Drive New Farm.
An architectural vision brought to life in our hearts and imaginations.
Amenity, Amidst Serenity
Complementing a riverside property of this prominence, at an exceptional address, the quality of the interior design at Zahra is boutique and unprecedented.
Living, dining and kitchen spaces are open plan, generous and efficiently designed to maximise the river and city views.
Kitchens have a bespoke furniture aesthetic with timber veneer cabinetry, fine bronze metal detailing and timeless calacatta porcelain stoneware slabs for splashbacks and benchtops. The integrated Gaggenau appliances seamlessly blend into
the kitchen cabinetry and include oven, steam oven, microwave, warming drawer and fully integrated dishwasher.
Striving for an elegant minimalist aesthetic, and at the forefront of the latest technologies coming out of Europe, cooktops are individual gas burners mounted directly into the benchtops. Leaving no luxury overlooked, every kitchen includes a wine fridge, soft close doors and drawers as well as a large butler’s pantry and scullery.
Inspired by Life & Landscape
Zahra’s vision is to create an iconic riverside address through its unique architecture and a rich, opulent material palette. With a focus on quality and durability — contemporary
yet classic — it will stand the test of time as a landmark development. Just as the building itself has been designedto integrate beautifully with the surrounding landscape, materials will be employed to help integrate the exterior and interior elements of the apartments. Overall, it’s a minimalist approach — extending the simplicity of metal, glass and rendered concrete — with the addition of subtle but effective ‘jewellery ’, such as gold aluminium screens. The interiors have a pared-back approach, adding a richness of detail to a sophisticated, uncluttered palette.
A Sophisticated Aesthetic
Zahra is an exclusive riverside address with a sophisticated aesthetic. The development will contain 22 luxury apartments with the look and feel of individually crafted homes.
The external façade has been articulated to create an intimate scale that personalises each individual dwelling, a rich and robust material palette of zinc cladding, with bespoke gold aluminium screening and glass conveying a simple but sophisticated look that will stand the test of time. This unique development offers a diversity of communal spaces — from a tranquil undercroft pool area that forms part of the entry sequence, with an adjacent private dining room and cinema room, to a rooftop haven with river views for yoga and contemplation.
Finished with flair & grace
Every inch of these apartments has been curated with the latest technologies, luxury and comfort in mind. The overall impression is one of refined and contemporary elegance. A refined yet sophisticated material palette has been selected, including wide-plank oak timber flooring, Italian porcelain tiles, dark timber veneers, feature wallpapers, bronze metal features and the latest calacatta porcelain stoneware. Master bedrooms are generously proportioned with built-in fitted robes and dressing tables in select units. Master ensuites are clad in calacatta porcelain stoneware with a deep soaking bath, a separate glass-enclosed rain shower, double vanity basins and ample storage in bespoke cabinetry. Throughout the units, recessed lighting is used to highlight feature niches and shelving. Downlights are recessed and dimmer controlled to create the right ambience for every setting.
A part of Brisbane it’s impossible to not fall in love with. Bike rides along the river, ice creams while

prices. New Farm is a place where the streets are wide and leafy, surrounded by the river and the

Welcome to New Farm, a suburb you’ll fall in love with (if you haven’t already).
