Located in between coastal suburban development and beach shacks, Cypress elevates itself to capture spectacular views over the Gold Coast coastline and Hinterland. The compact footprint encouraged vertical construction leaving the building with modest design and subtle detail, spatial requirements fit around a centralised circulation core. The narrow vertically stacked form over 4 levels creates a contrasting vernacular to surrounds, with subtle weathering warm tones, and refined form.
Full height glazing floods natural light into the ground floor entry, further enhanced by landscaping deep within the floor plate creating an undercroft rainforest and pool area.
