Just 100m down the road from the Oceans Boundary project, an unrivalled transformation of two old seaside apartments that sat above each other in a block of twelve was taking place. Increasing the internal floor space of each unit by part enclosing the huge wrap around balconies and creating new kitchens and study areas where once was dead space. Faced with compliance constraints surrounding working within the foreshore area and existing building footprints, heights and appearance, Hancock Homes was able to provide design direction and facilitation with council certifiers and strata governance to ensure the visions of the clients were not compromised and the integrity of the build outshone what was hoped for.
Floor to ceiling wrap around glass doors thermally and acoustic rated to withstand the high exposure to elements given the immediacy of the oceanfront opened up these apartments to take full advantage of the uninterrupted 270 degree Ocean vistas from Bondi in the north, across wedding cake island and down to Malabar in the south.
