Moondance Panorama Road by David James Architects
Located on the Sandbanks Peninsula in Poole, Dorset, the Moondance Panorama Road project is a design by David James Architects, a studio that you might find familiar from the Nairn Road Residence project that we’ve featured on our site.
The design brief for this project was to create a unique apartment block that consists of three luxury apartments, where each apartment will have breathtaking, panoramic views of the Poole Harbor area. It is located in a stunning area and the architects made the most out of it.
This uniquely designed apartment block consists of three luxury apartments, designed by David James Architects for Towncourt Homes. Each apartment has stunning panoramic views of Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island, and the design embraces all available natural light while maximizing views across the water.
The design brief was to create a distinctive residential living experience within an apartment block. Internally the apartments were to feel like individual bespoke houses while the external fabric of the building was specifically designed to represent a large house rather a traditional apartment block.
Extensive use of glazing embraces the stunning location bringing the exterior into the rooms; with the expanse of sea becoming part of the whole living experience. Terraces facilitate the outdoor experience and oversized sliding glass doors open to provide flow between the interior and exterior spaces
In the penthouse, feature frameless glass walls are utilized internally, linking the double height space over the dining room to the master bedroom and study. This facilitates views through the double height space towards the harbour beyond. Each apartment has three double bedrooms each with an ensuite, with the master bedroom benefitting from a bespoke dressing room.
The apartments feature intelligent lighting, audio / visual and thermostatic control. Photovoltaic panels reduce energy costs, this combined with high thermal performance, and excellent insulation, provides a comfortable, economical living environment.
Moondance provides a bespoke, luxury environment, expertly designed for modern living in this beautiful unique location.
Moondance has been awarded the architectural design award for properties valued at £5 million plus, in the 2016 International Design & Architecture Awards. The development has also won the best Residential Development category in Dorset, for developers Towncourt Homes, in the 2016 International Property Awards.
