Pacific Blue Resort
Port Stephens, NSW
The character and overall image of Pacific Blue Resort focuses on the creation of a ‘sense of place’ within the site. This is primarily achieved through extensive landscape works and the provision of a large curvilinear swimming pool, all based on a tropical oasis theme. The design of the units incorporates a mixture of rendered masonry with warm, natural tones and lightly coloured weatherboards contrasting with a more detailed timber deck, shutters, and screen and shade structures. The articulation of the buildings with materials and colours, in addition to the use of Colorbond roofing, has been used to reduce the visual scale of the development, add aesthetic interest and to achieve a stunning and relaxing waterside, holiday atmosphere.
