Project summary

Beach House is designed to deliver the amenity and sophistication of a private beach house while defining a new architectural type: the whole floor apartment.

The architectural expression celebrates the organic forms of coastal landscapes, shifting sands and waning tides. Influenced by Gold Coast’s early beach house architecture, characterised by broad verandas, open breezeways, and a connection to the outdoor environment, the development breaks away from traditional compressed apartment layouts to create internal vistas capturing views from east to west.

Large balcony decks to the east, create an extension to the living space and allowing for maximum coastal engagement. As an abstraction of the sweeping Gold Cost Coastline, the tower’s expression is defined by curved, bullnose slab edges and the vertical rhythm of blades encircling the perimeter.

Embodying the essence of the natural environment, Beach House emerges as a distinctive and carefully crafted form that seamlessly integrates with its coastal surroundings.

Nestled moments from the ocean, Beach House introduces an elevated paradigm of living within one of the Gold Coast’s most vibrant locations.

Crafted with meticulous architectural detailing, the structure provides twelve exquisitely appointed apartments, each graciously occupying an entire floor.

The residences boast a seamless fusion of natural finishes and panoramic ocean vistas.

Beach House celebrates the coastal wonders that define this region, allowing residents the luxury and convenience of modern apartment amenities, along with the lifestyle and generosity of a beach home.

The sculptural architectural form provides a distinctive landmark, which adds to the visual identity of Broadbeach.
