Elements of Byron

Elements of Byron

Byron Bay, Australia. 

This new resort, recently completed on a spectacular beachfront site, is intended to be distinctly Byron Bay and Australian in character. Byron Bay is the easterly most point of Australia, located about 2 hours south of Brisbane. The region is very well known for its rich agricultural history and the abundant fauna and flora which flourish in and around the ancient Mt Warning volcanic caldera. Designed to be sensitive and respectful of its site, which includes rare littoral rainforest, ponds, a diverse wildlife, native landscape, ocean and wetlands.

The central facilities and accommodation refer to both the traditional fibro beach shack and local naturally occurring forms and colour of the sand dunes. Leisure and conference facilities are housed under 3 separate pavilions, arranged to embrace the north eastern aspect and views to the dunal landscape. The organic form and loose planning of these central facilities is informed by studies of place making in indigenous South Pacific villages and the windswept shape of the sand dunes. A large lagoon style pool, at the heart of this area weaves through the buildings and landscape, providing discreet places for sun lounges, a fire pit and water play.
