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.

The entire western edge of our WISH. development comes alive with a pedestrianised promenade along Thynne Street offering landscaped areas and a diverse array of bars, cafes, restaurants and retail. Enjoy a drink or alfresco dining with friends and family while soaking up the last rays of afternoon sun. Then pop into the supermarket on your way home for those last-minute essentials. Stage 2 completes the 250m long entertainment promenade created in Stage 1.
One of the last vacant beach lots in Ocean Street Narrabeen, our site is an architects dream. For starters, the site has direct frontage onto Narrabeen beach and we work with a wonderful, design savvy client, who wants a modern, minimalist home for her extended family to enjoy. Modern materials of precast concrete and timber, combined with large expanses of glass are used to create spacious interiors, flooded with natural light. The house takes full advantage of uninterrupted views of the ocean and sits comfortably in the northern beaches context and lifestyle – Healthy living, fresh air and the captivating roar of the ocean.
Our narrative is that of discovery. Our design consists of 2 offset rectangular boxes that respond to the context. At the junction of the 2 boxes are the circulation spaces, running along a lineal spine and framing a spectacular view of the ocean from the entry. Private spaces are located in the southern box and entertainment spaces in the northern box, including a Japanese style private courtyard with water feature. An open and spacious design, large windows slide and doors pivot, to allow the outside to merge with the inside. As you enter the building you are drawn down a corridor that opens up different experiences, from the internal courtyard to the feature stair & skylight, arriving at the elevated kitchen and living spaces, orientated to capture the stunning views of Narrabeen beach.
Another Design Collaborative with Maurice & Nuno from AURORA Design.
Our masterplan for Bruce injects a series of highly crafted mixed-use buildings and townhouses into the Canberra market. The striking forms strengthen the urbanscape, through the creation of sky terraces and a vibrant public promenade designed in a bush setting. Modern offices saturated with natural light and air and a ground floor abuzz with the spice and flavour of cafes, restaurants, bars and speciality retail – A new destination for Canberra!
A design collaborative inspired by the vision and experience of TP Dynamics & AURORA Design.
