Location: Macquarie Park, Sydney
Client: Impero Constructions Goodman Group
These 60 serviced apartments within the Macquarie Business Park offer affordable yet extremely comfortable accommodation for those not wanting top-end prices. Designed for the Quest Apartment chain of hotels, Plus Architecture’s role started at the planning stage, including design development of the approved development application and a full interior design package. Documentation, construction and contract administration were also included in this project. The result is a holistic design that fully captures the client’s brief. Plus Architecture carefully followed the Quest Apartment design principles, while still satisfying the requirements of the Quest Apartment franchisee.
This low-rise development, with garden views, includes generous balconies and equally spacious hotel rooms. The ‘banding’ of the buildings, in either brown or white rendered masonry, also reduces the scale. As important was the point of arrival, with guests looking for a welcoming and unintimidating reception area and lobby. Timber-lined walls and deep sumptuous lounges create a warm and nurturing environment, ideal for those waiting for business colleagues or simply for friends to arrive.
