Marina Club Ocean Village
apartment • waterside
We have been involved with this project since conception in 2005, and have evolved the design for various market sectors over the years from town houses to villas, to apartment buildings. The arrival of the Sunborn floating hotel changes the concept and in 2016 we were challenged to come up with a design of 144 apartments across 5 buildings that could be molular or traditional build and cater for modern millennial living.
It’s a challenging environments, it is in a sensitive marina, next to a runway that needed pinpoint design accuracy to ensure MOD compliance. The planning process required a mountain of reports including painstakingly accurate wind tunnel simulations in 1:10 scale in facilities in California to exhaustive traffic and environmental reports.
The test of good design is whether the concept stays intact without any alteration through to the build stage. This has surpassed this test.
