Located at The Wave peninsula with views into the marina and out to the sea. The Piers V-shaped form allows for a private beach in between the two buildings, which step down towards the water and culminate with impressive villas positioned at the end of each pier. These luxurious villas seemingly float in the ocean with direct and exclusive boat access from the water.

For the layout of the super luxurious apartments Kettle Collective worked on offering a variety of options which include both standard units as well as duplex units to offer the impression of living in a standalone villa. The result of this design exercise can be appreciated on the outfacing elevations that are characterised by a composition of single and double height ‘boxes’ staked in a random fashion adding a sense of dynamic movement to the building.

The development houses a number of amenities: a lobby to be a ceremonial space culminating the arrival experience, a gym with a squash court, a branded spa, an outside and inside pool as well as a kids pool, kids/games room, a media room, a multi-purpose room, the drivers room and a roof terrace.
