Apartment Features

Natural Lighting

With glass doors and entrances, internal and external glass balustrades, stylish and ample window configurations, a series of north facing skylights over stairwells and ‘Solatubes’ within en-suite bathrooms, these apartments are imbued with natural lighting.

Stack Ventilation

The roof lines incorporate ridge top vents to take advantage of the natural phenomenon of ‘stack ventilation’. The automatic opening ridge vents and low- level awnings allow the release of any hot air build up in the first floor level of the apartments.

Natural Cooling via the Orientation

As well as capitalising on the stunning bay and ocean views, the south-east orientation of the apartments allows the ground and first floor sliding doors of these apartments to be opened to take full advantage of the south-easterlies to naturally cool and ventilate these apartments during the warmer months of the year.

Full Insulation

Careful consideration was given to fully insulating these apartments; the ceilings, the walls and even under the floor to assist in maintaining a comfortable internal environment with minimal need for heating/cooling appliances.

The wall construction consists of a brick veneer with a steel and plantation timber framed internal wall with high thermal and acoustic insulation treatment.

Floor construction is also plantation timber framed and insulated on the underside to reduce thermal transmission to the outside.

The use of heavily insulated brick veneer and timber frames provides a light weight, insulated cocoon superior to the typical large thermal mass of concrete floor and internal brick wall constructions.

Carbon Neutral & Locally
Sourced Building Materials

The environmental footprint of these Apartments was minimised by using locally sourced, carbon neutral raw materials such as limestone and plantation timbers.

The extensive use of limestone on the exterior of the apartment complex was a conscious choice to utilise naturally occurring limestone materials prevalent along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge escarpment. The limestone used for the apartments was sourced locally from a quarry at Redgate.

The aesthetically pleasing exterior combination of textured limestone contrasted with smooth painted cedar weatherboards reflects perfectly the splendid pristine coastal and forest landscapes surrounding the Augusta region.

Recycled Jarrah Timbers

The use of recycled materials was a significant aspect of this environmentally responsible development. The timber for the external decking was sourced from recycled jarrah timber reclaimed from old colonial homes, schools, buildings as well as older commercial sites including the old Wool Stores in Fremantle. These carefully sourced, superior quality timbers milled between 75-150 years ago have the advantage of excellent strength and durability as well as providing extra character with their unique colour, grain and texture.

Photo Voltaic System

Every apartment has its own individual, grid connected 1.5 KW photo voltaic array system to generate emission- free solar energy. This comprises of 7 highly efficient Sunpower panels arranged on each apartment rooftop using the Arid Easyrail mounting technology. The net result of these rooftop panel arrangements, perfectly complements the modern, progressive architectural design of this apartment complex.

Solar Hot Water

Each apartment is fitted with an Apricus Solar Hot Water System which utilises heating technology known as ‘Evacuated Tube Collectors’. With impressive insulation properties, this system can passively track the sun from early morning to evening, significantly improving efficiency compared with traditional hot water systems.

Whilst the solar collector is roof mounted, the storage tank is ground mounted so as not to compromise the aesthetic roof line. The system has an electric booster, operated via a single shot relay to minimise energy consumption in off peak, minimal sun periods.

Water Use

The entire apartment complex has been landscaped with a thoughtful selection of attractive water-wise native plants and ground covers in well-mulched garden beds. As such, minimal watering is required through a carefully monitored, drip irrigation system.

Fittings & Furniture

Energy efficient halogen and compact fluorescent light globes are used throughout these apartments.

The living/lounge rooms of these apartments, have unique lounge suites made 100% from recycled materials. Even the eco-suede covering is actually a polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles.
