BUENA VISTA ROOFTOP
Residential, Alteration and Addition
A major alteration and addition to a Spanish Mission style apartment building in Elizabeth Bay - the project called for alterations and additions to an existing waterfront apartment block including rooftop addition and new cantilevered balconies. The tiled pitched roof form is removed and replaced with a zinc clad box. Openings to the box are peeled back to allow maximum solar access. Individual steel framed balconies are added to the waterfront elevation providing outdoor space to each of the apartments. Within the penthouse apartment the existing ground floor was reconfigured to create a series of interlinking entertaining areas and provide visual and acoustic separation to the new rootop master bedroom suite.
