Waterstone Isles West

Is a low-rise development of 70 sectional title apartments. The Clients brief called for three separate nodes, two of which were to accommodate mainly apartments, and a third, an exclusive island, entirely surrounded by canals, accommodating individual houses – all with water frontage.

Water frontage is one of the most sought after offerings in real estate – this development had lots of it and the architects made full use of the opportunity. The apartments range from bachelor to 2 and 3 bedroom units, and the townhouses and individual houses were to be 2 and 3 bedroom properties.

The design solution consisted of understated box-elements, expressed as a collection of low-rise structures framing public spaces guided by the site’s main features including roads, canals, footpaths, orientation and spectacular views. The resultant design gives the impression of a pleasantly scaled village with buildings clustered tightly together, framing the public areas containing lawns, play areas and guest parking.

Aesthetically, the buildings are clean-lined expressions of the spaces within. The architects were very cautious to avoid any decoration or outlining on the facades. A simple palette of muted khaki-grey colours, in varying tones, expresses and enhances depth on the facades, whilst windows and doors, as well as the roofs, were off-set in a charcoal grey. The low-pitched roofs are covered with flat concrete tiles, which contribute to the general theme of simplicity.
