Frederick Street Apartments

Frederick Street Apartments

Surfers Paradise, Australia.

Our client, a significant national development group, with a track record of successfully developing major apartment buildings in other places, is expanding beyond their traditional markets in developing this tower of holiday apartments on a prime site close to the beach in Surfers Paradise. Our concept here, to accommodate smaller 1, 2 and 3 bed holiday apartments for short term rental, varies from the usual Gold Coast typology where living areas are fronted by balconies and therefore detached from the view, with fragmented tower forms and largely finished in painted render and concrete. We have developed a concept for the tower from first principles and a deeper understanding of guests’ real needs and experience, as well as a more sophisticated understanding and approach of how a tower form might better be perceived as a genuine sub-tropical tower responsive to its beachside location.
