Esplanade Residences

our services: planning, building design, compliance & approvals

location: The Esplanade, Cairns

size: 1000sqm

On a vacant Esplanade site, two brothers wanted to realise their ambition to each build a home for their large family.  The solution required some intricate planning to accommodate parking; adequate living accommodation & the outdoor leisure areas that the spectacular Trinity Inlet views warrant.  This is a sensitive location prominent of a key Cairns vista, so myriad took care to manage the form within the “envelope” of the Esplanade built landscape.  Equally, green layering of planting softens the built form for the families & the local alike.  Minimal consultation with Council lead to a successful planning approval for the dual buildings.
