OceanSurfers Paradise QLD
Ocean is an exciting landmark development located on Main Beach in Surfers Paradise, a neighbourhood in transition from sleepy holiday lettings to a thriving new precinct combining modern living with world-class amenity. This iconic development will bring approximately 71,350m² of bespoke residential, retail and serviced apartment floor area in a 74-storey tower form and offers an addition to the existing urban grain with a number of vibrant commercial and retail uses.
Placed in the wider Surfers Paradise context, the development is an opportunity to regenerate the existing urban fabric and will act as a gateway to the Main Beach district. The tower reads as a single streamlined volume on top of a five-storey podium. Splayed corners of the tower form maximise beach and ocean views to the east, as well as district and mountain views to the west, providing exceptional amenity for residents and guests.
The materiality of the design is informed by the site’s dramatic natural surroundings. The podium is an expression of the ripples and fluting the ocean carves into the ocean floor, while the tower draws inspiration from the sun hitting the ocean. These concepts are explored through the blending of translucent, transparent, reflective and solid materials.
The site has been arranged to provide meaningful spaces tailored to context and locality through a mix of serviced apartments and sky homes, supported by cafés, restaurants, retail and communal spaces within close proximity to a public transport network.
