Toombul Shopping Centre, Brisbane

Since Mirvac acquired the Toombul Shopping Centre site in June 2016, the focus has been to deliver a dynamic, urban retail destination that reinvents the shopping and retail experience for customers.

Part of that transformation was a recent upgrade of the Fresh Food Mall to remove existing ceiling finishes and introduce new, modern finishes including timber detailing, lighting and an entirely new suite of furniture, while also addressing shopfront heights and setbacks.

It’s a contemporary makeover for this local institution, which opened in 1967 and is now part of a growing inner urban area that’s just seven kilometres from the CBD.

Create a classic timber lining effect simply and with ease. The Austratus Flat Panel profile is a cost-effective option for adding genuine architectural style to your space. The broad cover width allows you to cover more space with less timber than Fin Profile alternatives. Austratus Flat Panel profiles are available in your choice of Western Red Cedar or Hemlock, as well as a range of raw, clear satin and vogue colour-wash finish options.

Product Spotlight

The Austratus Flat Profile is your choice for covering more space with less timber, and creating a modern architectural style. The flat, square shape creates beautiful lines and shadows and allows the true beauty of timber to shine through. A completely versatile product, you can choose to create a moody dramatic finish, or a light and airy one with our large range of prefinish colours.

Austratus Difference

Transforming Toombul’s Food Court into a new-look Fresh Food Mall had to balance two goals: a sophisticated look with a warm, relaxing atmosphere.

With dollars and deadlines also chief concerns, Hemlock proved the ideal choice for the new precinct’s ceilings – injecting sleek lines with a simplicity and speed that was invaluable.

With a lead time of only two weeks, quick and easy installation was essential while we worked closely with Farrago Interiors to ensure cost-effective, architectural flair was also delivered.

The 90×18 flat profile covers more space with less and – with a high ceiling over a large area – we also increased the spacing between timber battens to further lower the cost.

Today’s shopping centres face ever-increasing competition and the lure of classier food precincts is often front and centre. With its smart new look and calm, welcoming feel, Toombul’s Fresh Food Mall is undoubtedly ready for a whole new chapter.

Testimonial from Designer

“I recommended Austratus over a competitor product for this project for a few reasons – including price, ready availability and ease. We knew the look we wanted but we also had a very short turnaround and some challenges in terms of working around existing services and support systems. I think Hemlock was the best choice for many reasons and we’ve heard positive feedback about the results. A really stylish look, which was cost-effective, fast and flexible.”  – Darren Cherry,l Farrago Interiors
