Stunning images entered for Gold Coast hotel and luxury residence competition 

Marks Barfield have released these striking images of their design competition submission for a multi-use tourist destination resort on The Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia. The proposed design for Ridong Gold Coast comprises approximately 800,000sq ft of premium, luxury, and serviced apartments and a 5 star hotel arranged around a central landscaped garden on a 1.2 hectare site which opens up onto the beach.

Designed to stand out and fit in at the same time, the development is designed to maximise value while creating a green development that pushes the boundaries for sustainable high rise living while ensuring that energy costs and life cycle costs are kept to a minimum. The buildings, distributed around the perimeter of the site in order to create a public amenity in the heart of the scheme with a vibrant, welcoming and 'open' urban character, are all designed to maximise the benefits of the natural climate, facilitate wellbeing, healthy living and encourage the residents and visitors to live with minimum environmental impact while providing high quality living spaces.

A 3-storey ‘skybeam' housing premium apartments with sensational views over the coastline spans the void between two 50 storey high towers housing luxury apartments, a 5 star hotel, and serviced apartments, creating a distinctive and recognisable landmark on the skyline. Three shorter, 15 storey high, beachfront condos provide premium apartments with 180 degree views above a doughnut shaped podium housing restaurants, shops and spa. All residential units are designed with generous wind-sheltered balconies to allow the most to be made of the great climate on the Gold Coast.
