Peak Avenue Duplexes
The development is located within the beachside village of Main Beach, Queensland. A light natural palette is utilised throughout the interior to deliver an uncomplicated appearance and generate a feeling of space through simplicity.
Externally, the development stands out amongst the existing palette of the urban environment through the use of a dark brick and zinc roof. The roof employs a saw-tooth style to maximise natural ventilation through convection. This promotes cross-ventilation vertically as well as horizontally.
The atrium created by the continuous stairs further exemplifies this effect. Large concertina doors are utilised at the front and rear of the ground floor, increasing connectivity to the external courtyards which include water features and pools. In order to enhance the aesthetics at the entrance of the property, a single width vehicular access ramp has been incorporated.
At the base of the ramp is a fully underground turning bay allowing the residents to access double-parking garages beneath each duplex. The use of this single entry ramp eliminates the proliferation of garage doors and ramps, which is evident in many similar developments. Each of the double lock up garages is fitted with a secure roller door to provide security to residences.
