Looking north east over Fairy Bower and Shelly Beach, these four apartments step down the site over five levels. Each apartment occupies an entire level of the site, giving the impression that they are more like elevated houses than apartments.

Internally, the beautiful views are framed and ever-changing patterns of light are captured through skylights, windows and screened internal winter gardens. Internal gardens are situated on the northern side of the apartments, creating a light-filled private and protected area with an outlook over the water.

The apartments are built on a solid sandstone base and features a custom designed assemblage of components including screens, light fittings, bridges, boardwalks and eventually concludes with a dynamic expression of copper roof and wall elements.

Each residence has a private entrance, direct access from the lift, direct access to Fairy Bower, no common walls and a separate garage, all of which add to the feeling that each apartment is more like a house.

The building complements the dynamic topography of the locality and enhances the views to Shelly Beach, Manly and the coastline of the Northern Beaches.
