Alternative to the Main Beach Duplex
ALTA
ALTA was the first project we took on as our own property development. Our goal from the onset of the project was to create a viable alternative to the duplex housing topology that had become increasingly prevalent in the Main Beach area. By adopting a two per floor apartment arrangement with a central core, a single level interior was possible with a choice of three bed plus study and four bed plus study options, all fully ensuited. A beach thematic was adopted, with themes of sun-tanned skin, blue lagoon water, sea-spray, sand and sun-shades used to inform in the choice of wall and cladding, brickwork, benchtops, floor tiles and balustrade glazing. Precast concrete panels and post tensioned concrete slabs were adopted to maximise internal spans and provide a high level of construction quality. All lighting, external blinds and fans were controlled by Phillips Dynalite with keypads engraved for ease of use.
