Swell Apartments, Queensland

Swell Apartments, on Queensland's Gold Coast comprises a 4-star 148-apartment hotel over seven levels with a tavern, café and retail tenancies. In addition to the hotel, the development includes 82 prestige residential apartments. This apartment hotel is evocatively designed to represent the relaxed holiday culture and character of this important Queensland tourist destination.

The site on the Gold Coast Highway falls 30 m from rear to front and offers exceptional local beach views with views to Surfers Paradise from upper levels. The 30 m fall was a great challenge, which was responded to with a stepped village design that is often seen in European hillside locations.
