Project Description

AVOCA APARTMENTS

These six residential apartments, completed in 2001, known as The Lighthouse emerge from the cliff formation lift a rock formation to become part of the landscape. The edifice sits like that of a  rock ledge protruding from the cliff face to overlook the ocean below in an exciting artistic arrangement of functional shapes. Ultra modern, minimalist, architectural space are combined to produce an exemplary building dramatically perched as an extension of the escarpment. Comprised of Concrete, Glass and masonry the architecture was intentionally heavy and hard wearing as an aesthetic choice but also form the longevity and strength of these materials in a high wind and salt water environment.
