Gold Coast, Australia
Gold Coast, Australia

The towers, with their distinctive glass curtain walling system, are the result of a collaboration between Oppenheim Architects and DBI. The fundamental design concept drew inspiration from three smoky quartz crystals that were discovered in the region. Jewel is inspired by the crystalline volcanic hook that forms the underlying structure at the coastline and in particular, the Gold Coast’s iconic hinterland. Jewel makes evident the geomorphology of the Gold Coast, while clearly articulating is response to the regions subtropical climate. The building employs sophisticated facade technologies to ensure shading from sun and shelter from the wind, delivering a 5 star green star building, that is as dramatic as it is sustainable.
