Luxury apartment architecture

Western Design Architects obtained planning permission for this unique contemporary block of 4 apartments in a prominent location overlooking Poole Harbour.

This modern building relates sensitively to its coastal setting and immediate neighbours and offers a dynamic architectural form, worthy of this unique site.

modern apartments with large tiered balconies

Elegant & refined design

Each luxury apartment is arranged across an entire level with the top two storeys being a split level penthouse with prime sea views. The raked wedge shape fa├žade not only provides privacy to the neighbouring buildings, but also greatly reduces the mass of the development. The apartments at first, second and upper levels are significantly set back from neighbouring buildings, with rendered side walls protecting the development from overlooking.

The resulting building is architecturally refined, elegant and dynamic.
