Inspired by Rose Bay’s architectural history steeped in art-deco design, the corner site is on a slight incline, seen from some distance down each street. Introducing curved corners draws the eye around the site, softening its featured position. Aesthetics are balanced with functional well-being via large balconies, floor-to-ceiling openings and interiors by Lawless & Meyerson, and landscaping by Wyer & Co.
By modelling what parts of the building receive direct sunlight at different times of day, our architects MHNDU can make adjustments to the façade and ensure living spaces are orientated to capitalise on solar access. This modelling is also run over different seasons to highlight any adjustments that can be made that will invite more sunlight throughout the winter months, and provide protection in summer. Ensuring the building is comfortable and efficient to heat and cool year-round.
