Type: Mixed-Use Residential
Budget: 13.5 Million
Status: Completed 2016
Orchard by the Sea will be the first mixed-use site delivered at Eliza Ponds, a new coastal infill project in Spearwood.
Orchard by the Sea provides 51 apartments arranged around an open, landscaped atrium space which allows for maximised solar access and cross ventilation whilst avoiding double loaded, enclosed lobby spaces. Ground floor retail and commercial tenancies open up the opportunity for local supermarkets, cafes and small bars to get a foothold in the new community.
Contemporary Architecture references the local vernacular with breeze blocks motif screens mitigating the prevailing winds which affect the site in summer.
