Construction completes on Tony Owen Partners-designed Longbeach Apartments 

The Longbeach Apartments by Tony Owen Partners are located in the centre of Brighton Le Sands in Sydney; a busy cosmopolitan, beachside suburb. Longbeach contains 50 residential units with extensive balconies and sweeping views and the building’s curvilinear form creates a sculptural expression for the streetscape.

The main element of the façade are the bronze laser cut screens attached to the facades. These screens provide maximum privacy to units and minimum overlooking, particularly towards the units to the north. In addition they provide solar shading to minimise the solar heat gain and requirement for air conditioning. The retail provides activation for the streetscape.

The façade of the first floor is clad in a timber screen element using the same patterning as the building façade. These panels screen the first floor parking and provide an attractive streetscape. The screens employ a flowing curved dot graphic pattern which gives a bold but whimsical expression and creates an operable façade.
