Long Bay Apartments

Sited along the ridgeline at Long Bay, these modern apartments have a character and form that addresses the site aspect and environment.

The Long Bay Apartments are conceived as a response to a coastal condition that includes panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf. Situated atop the highest point in Long Bay, the buildings are modern, changing in character and form as different parts of the site and environment are addressed. Through the focus of its own ground floor café, the building organises its 39 apartments and private courtyard garden into an engaging composition that celebrates its corner location. Reinforcing the apartment's Long Bay locale, the finishes are modern interpretations of the eroded promontories that reach out into the gulf.

Each apartment engages with the idea of a beach house as a new idiom that is distinctly different to the more traditional kiwi bach. These are contemporary spaces that provide a relaxing and refreshing environment for their residents. Each celebrates the fact that you are no longer in the city or at work. Decks are celebrated as extensions of the living spaces, and views are framed and expansive, all to create a special place to call home.
