Externally the building is linked to the Clubhouse with a covered walkway, providing easy access to the Beachside gymnasium, heated swimming pool, outdoor pizza oven and bowling green.
The apartments are designed to provide residents with the option of independent living or, alternatively, residents can take advantage of the adjacent clubhouse and have their meals and laundry needs provided. In plan the building forms an ‘L’ with the long axis aligned east – west and the shorter axis aligned north – south, maximising solar access and capturing cooling south west breezes, resulting in an effective and welcoming passive design. All apartments are designed with views to the adjacent natural bushland, or to intimate courtyards separating the development from the clubhouse. Natural materials, a contemporary style and a relaxed colour palette will all contribute to the holiday, seaside aesthetic.
Clever use of the steep site has resulted in universal access being provided to the whole facility.
