With an initial requirement to create a low rise apartment complex with pools to all apartments, a fantastic opportunity presented itself to create a dynamic architectural form, taking cues from the beautiful beachfront site located in Queensland Australia.
The dynamic façade is the result of an extensive design process whereby the final facade form was created to also act as a structural exoskeleton to the building. The organic woven façade form creates a dynamic visual feast for the eye whilst also providing direct support to the balcony pools, creating a cost effective structural solution.
The balcony pools wrap the façade, and are offset as the building rises, both to allow lower floor levels to achieve greater development potential, as well as to address the development controls that required a recessive built form from the beach frontage.
