Elysium
Residential Apartment, Interior Design


Location: Mermaid Beach, Queensland
Client: Howard Group

The Elysium apartment development provides only 9 large residential apartments which each have large floor plates, good privacy, large outdoor recreation terraces with northern aspect over the adjoining park.

The architecture is clean and powerful. A combination of clean blade elements and two expressed 3 storey components astride the 4 level void, articulates the building in a dramatic manner to the street. Level 5 features a single level penthouse which is capped with a floating slim line roof edge to create a dramatic built form.

The building provides an innovative architectural approach with a ‘split’ apartment configuration, a dramatic 4 level arrival space and a ‘floating’ top storey.

Materials are predominantly well detailed white off form concrete and glass - raw, honest and sophisticated. The proposed architecture provides innovation, drama and compositional interest.

This proposal is an innovative sophisticated architectural composition which will be a positive addition to the ongoing development of this Mermaid Beach precinct.
