Resident amenity in apartment towers has gone up a notch over the last few years, as people are spending more time in their homes and working remotely.

It can be a defining factor in a buyers decision to secure an apartment in one development over another, and developers are getting wise to that fact.

Pezet Matheson Director Todd Matheson believes Tapestry, the recently launched Chevron Island apartment development from Siera Group, has one of the best on the exclusive island, if not even the wider Gold Coast.

"We've seen it on a few projects where developers have dedicated the rooftop to communal facilities, but not to this standard in this area," Matheson says.

"It's a huge space where residents can enjoy a number of different facilities and zones, as well as offering sweeping views across the whole of the Gold Coast."

Siera Group Founder and Managing Director, Brent Thompson, says when they were designing the rooftop, they really wanted to make sure that they created multiple breakout zones so that residents were able to be in their own private little areas when enjoying the facilities.

"Reminiscent of the famous hotel rooftops of  the world,  The Roof Terrace at Tapestry is a multi-faceted retreat for residents to enjoy their space," Thompson says.

"Whether it’s a swim in the resort pool, relaxing on the day bed deck or sunken lounge area, some quiet time on the lawn terrace or tending to the vegetable garden, there’s a space for everyone to enjoy in total  privacy.

Offering panoramic views, the rooftop is complete with a resort-style swimming pool, barbecue and alfresco space, a private dining room with a terrace and fire pit, an edible garden, a private gym with a sauna and steam room, along with the many landscaped lawns and gardens scattered throughout.

Siera were clever in the design of the resort-style swimming pool, which makes it even more unique.

“We've lent into creating a pool that had those private breakout spaces for people, so you could have your own privacy, and we also wanted to make sure that the pool didn't obstruct the beautiful views that we have to the northeast over the Nerang river and into the Surfers Paradise skyline," Thompson added.

“We actually removed one of the apartments on the level below and we've dropped the pool down into that space so you get this really seamless pool experience with the spectacular view, with the pool then becoming an infinity edge that then overlooks the rest of the Gold Coast."

On the roof is also a private residence dining room and dining terrace, which looks out to the southwest, over HOTA and into the hinterland.”

“This is a space residents are able to book through an online booking application that Siera will run as part of the management of the building and it's a great place to be able to hold those special events where you want to invite family and friends over and enjoy everything that tapestry has to offer in your own private setting, so we think that's going to be very special for milestone events like birthdays engagements and anniversary's and we're really excited about the residents of tapestry to being able to enjoy that.”

There's further dining options, around the two barbecues, as well as a veggie garden, something Thompson put a level of importance on when designing the rooftop.

“We wanted to create this sense of community for the residents, a place where those that are interested in being a part of the vegetable garden and community would be able to. The garden is really low maintenance and very practical, that the residents are going to be able to take ownership of and really create a sense of community and belonging.”

Tapestry's rooftop is also home to a fully-functional gym and wellness facility, which has indoor and outdoor activation, as well as a sauna and steam room that ties into the entire wellness space.

“We wanted to have this health and wellness story to the rooftop as well and that comes right through from the pool and into the spa facilities.

"We've got an outdoor shower as well as our outdoor lawn area which is going to be real grass where people are going to be able to utilise that to do yoga or outdoor activities and this also ties into our residence gym which is located on the rooftop as well."

Tapestry, rising 22-levels, on the prized east-side of Chevron Island at 39 Darrambal Street, is being developed by the Siera Group, led by Brent Thompson, who sits on the board of UDIA QLD and chairs the Brisbane City Council Policy Committee.

The tower was designed by the local architecture firm BDA, whose brief was to merge art with architecture.

The result is a striking building of 113 apartments, featuring a mixture of vertical blade walls and horizontal slab edges which respond to available views and natural light.
