The proposed development at 1 Petrie Street Rainbow Bay is a premium development of 22 quality, livable luxury residences with ground floor rec-deck providing building amenity unprecedented in the area.
The site is privileged with uninterrupted northern views from all storeys to Rainbow Beach and the ocean. Focusing on maximizing access to these views, the design responds with distinct simplicity and openness. Specifically speaking to the seamless connection between living space and balcony, where extended slab edges allow the user to occupy all edges of the building. The deep balconies and reveals also provide rain and solar protection, decreasing the buildings heat gain and ultimately encompassing principles of sub-tropical and environmental design.
The project also provides positive outcomes for enhancing social sustainability, through the provision of valuable public amenity for residents for gathering, social interaction and recreation.
The interior focuses on enhancing the narrative and language of the building, the material palette evokes feelings of nostalgia where the occupant is hopelessly immersed in a coastal romance.
At ground raw concrete, white veiled screens, brass detailing, stone and stacked brown brick are used in the pedestrian entry spaces and communal beach to communicate the buildings relationship to its context and surroundings. The highly textural, light and subtle palette is immersed in extensive landscaping and greenery aimed to provide a bright and natural colour juxtaposition.
On the upper levels white coastal brick and dark window frames are softened by a neutral, coastal brown screen and textured soffits of the same colour. Providing an interactive element with the user able to shape the façade on a daily basis, enhancing the themes of open & protected.
