Carefully crafted for the Gold Coast climate, Sea Glass is sculpted for the prevailing breeze and the rituals of a beach-side lifestyle

Shaping liveable environments

 

Each floor has only one or two apartments, with living spaces located to the northeast for views, easternmost sitting rooms looking to the horizon and covered balconies to the north and south providing a retreat from the wind. Emerging from around this plan, the architecture is defined by a robust, fluted precast wall anchoring the building to the south, and balconies and blush-coloured glass articulating the façade to the north.

Contributing to the urban realm, the podium is a raw and monumental concrete volume that emerges from the street like a headland, buffering the wind off the ocean. The breeze dissipates in the void between the podium and canopy, the tower hovering above. Apartment interiors are light and luxurious, with natural stone adding a sense of weight, like the podium to the tower.

Crafting the building

Embracing the barefoot lifestyle

Communal spaces in Sea Glass celebrate the rituals of the Gold Coast lifestyle. Returning from the surf, residents can wash down their surfboards and store them in the beautifully detailed cabinets, and after relaxing in the wellness spaces atop the pavilion, they can start work in the communal office. The sound of the ocean can be heard in the quietness of the lobby, and textural materials are soft under bare feet.
