THE WATERFRONT, SHELL COVE
SHELL COVE, ILLAWARRA REGION, NSW
Located within the Illawarra Region of NSW just south of Wollongong, the coastal Shell Cove will become a home for more than 5,000 people with a bustling boat harbour and marina.
The proposal consists of architectural concept for three detached houses that will inspire the target market to a new way of living that reflects the natural qualities of the locality and actively pursue a contemporary coastal character that responds to the relaxed lifestyle of the region.
The dwellings are five bedrooms and occupy a gross floor area (GFA) that varies between 270 and 320 sqm. The two storey dwellings are articulated and specifically designed for the lot, and take into account land slope, views, breezes, solar orientation, access opportunities and any neighbourly issues such as privacy or overshadowing.
Each ground level unit has a large courtyard area which provides additional outdoor living spaces and incorporates some of the new trends of indoor-outdoor living that leverage the character of the Waterfront Precinct at Shell Cove as to be modern Australian and contribute to a coastal vernacular.
