This development comprises 130 “villas” of 2-4 bedrooms and clubhouse facilities operated by the Sailing Club Group. The challenge of the site was, in essence, almost mathematical due to the developers desire to maximize “real estate” within the scope of allowed development per local guidelines. GFAB are responsible for not only all buildings but complete infrastructure design, landscape and even signage for the project. Within the buildings, due to limitations of coverage area (allowed) and developers ceiling height requirements, we were forced to achieve designs which minimized circulation space (to provide max living/usable area) and even somewhat radical staircase designs, best described as “composite” in nature, where the toughened glass that forms the handrail is an active part of the structure of the stair, which is unstable without it – this is not a willful exhibition of structural gymnastics, but rather a response to spatial limitation. In addition to this, the road layout proposed lead us to develop special/unique casting/stamping patterns for the paving design, used alongside our own precast “grass block” pavers which form part of the overall road widths and parking areas within the property. By selection of plant/tree genus and intuitive, numerically based wayfinding and signage, we have been able to circumvent language based issues which might occur based upon anticipated demographic of guests.
