Inspired by luxury resort-style hotels, Drift is Mosaic’s latest architecturally-designed showcase now completed in Coolum, Queensland. Designed by OGE Group and inspired by its beachside location, Drift is a sophisticated and modern multi-residential development that represents everything you would expect from coastal living.
Set just 20 metres back from the coast, the 56 north-facing apartments offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and created an interesting design challenge for Mosaic. The requirement was a suitable façade that would withstand Australia’s harsh conditions – namely the ultraviolet rays and ocean salt spray – all whilst achieving the look and feel of their opulent design. Careful consideration led to the specification of multiple DECO products across the project.
A mixture of DecoBatten, DecoClad and DecoSlat aluminium products were chosen to create the final stunning masterpiece. All products were finished in DecoWood’s Qualicoat Class 2 marine grade powder coating in ‘Weathered Timber’ due to its Super Durable™ qualities and low-maintenance requirements as well as providing the high-quality design aesthetic the designers insisted on. To emphasise the development’s contemporary style, DecoBatten ‘100x50’ battens were positioned vertically on the outside of the building to create a striking visual feature, while DecoClad V-Groove cladding was installed over the upper story to complete the façade.
On ground level, an impressive mixture of 50x50 and 100x100 DecoBatten’s were installed vertically to serve as a screening device that allows airflow yet still creates privacy for residents. In the gardens, luxurious resort-style pool cabanas have been constructed from DecoSlat’s 65x16 aluminium slats. To order a free sample of these products, please click here.
The result? A showstopping set of luxury apartments and penthouses fit for any resort lover. The DecoWood ‘Weathered Timber’ finished products created contemporary, tranquil design features that complement its coastal environmental and ocean views effortlessly.
