Project : Castaways Resort & Spa – Refurbishment

“The resuscitation of tourism infrastructure is an important and ongoing requirement for relevance and commercial success. This is particularly important for assets in the tropical zone where extremes of climate and heavy wear and tear require renewal over short time frames.

The Mission Beach frontage for the Castaways Resort has been skilfully repositioned as a major element of the resort experience with the public space renewed with a tactile and subtle interplay of new timber elements, pools and integrated place making concepts.

Project : Kamerunga, Cairns – Residential

My partner and I recently asked the great team at edgearchitecture to design and manage the build of a unique verandah to fit with our house.

I can’t speak highly enough as to the service and professionalism which they gave to the job.

We would highly recommend Gordon and Michaël from edgearchitecture for your next house – I know that we will use them again for our next project.

Project : Redlynch Valley – Residential

Shortly after purchasing our land in Redlynch Valley Estate, without any experience in building or building design, we formulated a thoroughly researched list of architects & draftspersons. Individual discussions followed and these efforts were to engage assistance with our project.

With each of these meetings we discussed our required specifics: To maximise the use of the lot size, increase the opportunities of Redlynch Valley views from as many aspects of the house as possible, the importance of air flow & material alternatives for tropical and green living. To us the challenge was that these factors could not be prioritised, they were all of equal importance.

From our very first meeting with Gordon, we both immediately warmed to him. Not only did he share our philosophies, for us the point of difference with edgearchitecutre, is that their work is not just about a suitable structure – it is all embracing of a living space that evokes both mystery & comfort, when absorbing the surroundings.

During construction we have lived only a street away & have marvelled at the interest, intrigue & neighbourly admiration that its progress raised.

Now, frequently people enquire about our satisfaction with our new home. Quite simply, our reply is that Gordon & his team far exceeded our expectations. We have a unique part of the world to live in & our home is so much more than anything we could have ever imagined.
