The Pavilion

Coral cove
Imagine sipping a flat white and snacking on a freshly baked chocolate croissant while reading the latest best-selling novel in the cozy lounge or chic coffee shop at Coral Cove. All while enjoying a grand view over the Indian ocean. This is not retiring this is living. As you enter the foyer, a double volume glass façade opens up towards the breath-taking view over the Indian ocean. A series of double volume areas allows for a dramatic spatial experience as you move through the building while a lower ceiling and carefully designed bulkheads and an internal canopy structure creates a more intimate and comfortable atmosphere in the lounge. Due to the unpleasant wind during certain times of the year, the lounge and coffee shop are designed to have various spill out spaces that is sheltered from the elements with glass shopfront that still allows residents to enjoy the view.

The Apartments and Care Center

Coral cove
The conceptual approach was to draw inspiration from the rich vernacular heritage and buildings within the area, by providing a contemporary reinterpretation of the existing typology.
Deep gable ends provide solar control with a series of generous balconies with large sliding windows which provide shelter from prevailing winds. Communal spaces and staircases are enclosed with glass curtain walls to fend off the wind, while allowing residents to still enjoy the spectacular views.
The Care Center provides continued care for residents of the estate that have dementia or suffer from other forms of cognitive decline. The building is split into a Frail Care and Memory Care wing with an internal meandering route and a series of planted courtyards. These courtyards have water features to create a tranquil atmosphere, a bird aviary, pergolas, herb gardens that are tended to by residents and outdoor seating areas for reflection and connecting with nature.

Garden Villas

Coral cove
The garden villas are designed with patios that are screened off from the prevailing winds to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living. This will enable residents to enjoy the temperate climate of the Dolphin coast throughout the year.
Large windows frame views of the ocean or the adjacent indigenous forest while a louvers provide shade for effective solar control and a deck further extends the size of the patios. The gable ends of the Garden villas are accentuated with a plastered frame and a deep recess which is painted a charcoal colour. This detail hides the downpipes and creates a neat, clean edge for the roof. The typology of the villas draw inspiration from the vernacular building style of the sugar cane farms in the area which is re-interpreted in a contemporary manor while creating a homely atmosphere where residents can enjoy quality time with family and friends.
