Palm Springs

A 9 level 48 Apartment Building on the Pacific Foreshore. Generously deep curved white balconies provide valuable sun shading and recreational space and in tension and contrast with adjacent orthogonal surfaces act to create a composition rich in movement and chiaroscuro like the ever present sea. The vertical division walls rise in counteraction to the horizontality of the balconies from the ground podium and extend into sculptural forms at roof level dividing the penthouse terraces. 

These are in a river beige colour derived from the tracery of nearby tidal creeks and estuaries, just a short stroll up or down the beach, and are punctuated by open window patterns to add to the form and to be suggestive of viewing and breezeways and the Queensland vernacular.
