Each unit is made up of 2 bedrooms plus a study, with galley kitchens that open out to the living areas which seamlessly connect to the large front alfresco balconies.
The client requested a modern minimalist designed building; this was achieved by using an innovative mix of materials such as Alucobond composite panels, Marine Plywood, glass, Aluminium and recycled modwood decking. Additionally, clean continuous lines, angled balconies, a dressed feature blade wall and a contemporary colour scheme helped achieve the requirements of the design brief by creating a modern and highly dynamic appearance to the building.
