A new kind of beach house is set to arrive on the Gold Coast after Bottega Group announced their $52 million luxury apartment project.

The ultra-unique structures referred to as “vertical beach houses” have been designed by the architects at Woods Bagot. They intentionally capture the essence of a time when the coastline was dotted with beach houses.

Nick Malloch is the co-director of the Brisbane-based Bottega Group.

“Our whole philosophy has been to incorporate a unique interpretation of the modern beach home into an apartment building,”

“From the outset, we wanted to embed that philosophy into a group of exclusive residences with like-minded people in a vertical village that would stand the test of time.”

“We certainly believe we have done that and the inquiry and interest prior to launch has reflected that.”

The luxurious structures referred to as 123OBR will feature a two-level pool house on the ground floor. The midway point will be dedicated entirely to a resort deck.

Apartments will typically offer 224sqm with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The spacious dining and living areas will provide views through full-height glass windows.

Inspired by the traditional Queenslander’s veranda, the apartments will be completed by extended ocean-view balconies.

Woods Bagot’s lead designer David Lee has attributed the building’s unique design to the extensive freedom of expression afforded by Bottega Group

“Bottega came to us with an open brief without parameters that allowed us complete flexibility with how to define the site,”

“This unique approach to collaboration really allowed us to sequence the space in a way that allowed us to design residences like private homes.

“The interior layouts of the homes are carefully separated into private sleeping quarters looking towards the Hinterland, and active and functional living spaces towards the ocean.”

The development will be located at 123 Old Burleigh Road, Broadbeach and is expected to become a landmark for the area.
