Lighthouse’s 18 storey residential tower sits three storeys off the ground above an impressive glass entry plaza, elevating the apartments to the views. It encompasses a collection of breathtaking one and two-bedroom apartments with multipurpose studies or guest rooms. Turner’s ingenious design sees generous living areas take perfect advantage of this positioning. Encouraging indoor/outdoor living, the entertaining spaces wrap around the balconies to maximise space, light and views.

This development presents new engineering challenges that involve the retention of an existing 7 storey commercial office building in which this 18 storey residential building will form part off via the use of an architectural designed atrium. In conjunction with the challenges presented in maintaining the use of the commercial building whilst construction occurs, both buildings are founded upon an existing 3 level carpark which part off will require to be demolished and reinstated to cater for the new engineering loads and make way for essential services.

In addition to the challenges presented, the striking façade consisting of floor-to-ceiling glazed aluminium windows will provide an open look to the Sydney CBD, whilst showcasing the extravagant look of this development in Burwood.
