The Quarter

01. Project Description

The Quarter is a natural and flowing extension to an existing project, the Media Quarter. The Quarter draws inspiration from its well-established neighbour, speaking a language of glass, aluminium and natural stone, with a strong emphasis on horizontal elements that are punctured for the purposes of balconies and sun control, opening up views to the city, mountain, harbour and surrounds. Every apartment features floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and windows allowing for the uncompromised flow of light and views into the living spaces that have neutral interiors and top-end finishes. The external palette has been left purposefully neutral allowing the vibrancy of the neighbourhood and existing vernacular to be left unrivalled whilst complementing its context. This has been contrasted by elements of planting on some balconies – which will be irrigated from non-potable water sources – and allows for free-flowing pedestrian access as the building meets the ground flanked by double volume retail catering for both residents’ and neighbours’ needs. Above this double-volume ground floor, with its impressive lobby and 24-hour reception desk, will rise two floors of parking, topped by a further five floors of glass-fronted apartments and penthouses, all but two of which will boast terraces
