Located within 200m of the ocean, this development was designed for the humid climate of Fiji and to capture the epic views of Laucala Bay. The development comprises 8 premier grade townhouses with garden and pool facilities, nestled amongst the exclusive, tropical setting of Suva.
The distinct landscape setting amongst the palm trees, provides an ideal back drop for a building that is responsive to the environment. Deep shadow boxes adorn the facades, providing shading from the sun and glass louvres in combination with breeze blocks, naturally ventilate the townhouses from an extremely humid environment, minimising the requirements for air conditioning.
The site area is 1,100m2 and the townhouses are designed over 3 levels. There is Ground level parking, Level 1 living and dining spaces and Level 2 bedrooms. Both level 1 and 2 capture amazing views of the ocean, over palm tree canopies. The townhouses are a mixture of 2 and 3 bedroom dwellings, with construction due to commence by October 2019.
