2014, AIA Architecture Awards, Queensland Regional Project of the Year
Located on the Isle of Capri on the Gold Coast this vibrant development has transformed the shopping and dining experience for not only residents of the suburb but has become a beacon of success on the Gold Coast. The contemporary design embraces the subtropical climate of the Location with a large industrial style building design celebrating towering ceilings and volumetric space that spills out onto terraced decks to the east embracing the sunshine, breezes and views to surfers paradise.
The landscape has been carefully composed with a lush and verdant subtropical palette providing a layered and shaded setting for the buildings. Trellises and vertical green elements provide a softness to hard edges and define pedestrian corridors.
The project provides a strong sense of place and identity for the community. It provide a new age example of retail structure blending architecture and landscape to provide a seamless and successful visitor experience.
