Le Bain in Newstead

Newstead, Brisbane, QLD

Quatro Design’s outstanding product quality, combined with our design excellence, made us the obvious choice when searching for planter solutions to compliment Le Bain’s iconic design theme.  Our custom design ability and truly timeless and beautiful standard product ranges cemented our collaborative relationship with Cavcorp and Torre Developments early on.


Le Bain has raised the benchmark of architectural excellence. This sculptural building, with its curved balcony forms and considered landscaping connecting the ground floor and podium levels, has enormous streetscape appeal. The signature rooftop oasis was curated with fitness, wellness and community in mind. Le Bain commenced construction in 2017 and has allowed Cavcorp to create a true vertical community that caters for all demographics of Brisbane whilst providing a unique lifestyle experience for all residents.


Le Bain’s signature hanging garden facade was a key architectural design feature from the start. The challenge was to find a planter and installation method that had barely visible steel supports or brackets, as not to detract from the hanging gardens when viewed from the street level below. Cavcorp and Torre Developments also needed a planter that was versatile, adaptable, waterproof and most importantly had a sleek and refined exterior finish to seamlessly integrate with the building’s modern exterior. Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) was the perfect solution for the planters, as it is not only water resistant but lightweight when compared to traditional cast-concrete. GRC planters are robust enough to provide support for holding soil and plants, requires minimal structural additions and has an aesthetically pleasing smooth exterior finish.


Quatro Design worked collaboratively with Cavcorp and Torre Developments’ design and engineering teams on their conceptual ideas and assisted with the design of custom planter boxes that could hang from the side of the building.  We also helped develop a range of narrow tall planter boxes used as integrated balcony planters.


Le Bain’s signature rooftop was curated to create an urban oasis in the sky which features a fitness studio with Technogym equipment, a yoga lawn, heated infinity pool with twin spa baths and even has an organic vegetable garden. Our sophisticated and contemporary 1800 Low Cylinder planters form the central focal point of this world-class rooftop and house four large palm trees and ground covers to create a dramatic backdrop against the Brisbane skyline.


Our customer service and the assistance provided at every step from design and manufacturing through to delivery, has built a long-lasting relationship between our companies and we are already in talks to provide assistance with Luminare, their latest 28 level offering.


Le Bain was awarded in three categories at the 2020 UDIA Queensland Awards for Excellence:

  • Winner High Density Development Greater than 10 Storeys
  • Winner Design Excellence
  • Finalist Presidents Award


The Cavcorp team continue to set the benchmark in architectural excellence. Quatro Design is proud to have been associated with this iconic development.

Early on Quatro Design understood our vision and concepts and came up with ideas and guidelines that would ultimately become part of our final design.
