Ground-breaking residential scheme celebrates the great outdoors.

Local climate and topography shaped our entire 250-apartment scheme.

We planned the location and orientation of ten mixed long and tall houses to capture the sunpath and minimise overshadowing.

Roof elevations face south and southwest, bathing all living rooms, balconies and principal bedrooms in natural light.

South (wind) side elevations form giant roofs, giving them a distinctive curved profile, while northern elevations house social winter gardens with planted terraces and balconies.
