Kensington

Kensington

Informed by Toowong Memorial Park’s natural beauty, opposite which this collection of 2- and 3-bedroom residences sits, Kensington by Mosaic’s architecture is elegantly modern, presenting a fresh, new urban edge to the area.

Created in partnership with leading design solutions firm, Cottee Parker, oversized apartments are carefully curated to deliver style and comfort in equal measure. Full height glazing and operable windows allow an abundance of fresh air and natural light deep into impeccably finished living spaces, heightening the sense of space.

Mosaic Property Group is mindful of the footprint they leave behind, not just on communities but also on the environment. Some of the sustainability measures undertaken at Kensington are:

  • An environmentally responsive design. Form articulation leverages the site’s most valuable aspects
  • Intelligent apartment planning allows for maximum cross ventilation through elevated ceilings and screened facades
  • Double-glazed windows and doors improve acoustics, ventilation, lighting, and solar protection, reducing energy costs
  • A gross pollutant trap filters stormwater runoff, ensuring water pumped into the stormwater system is free of pollutants.
  • Sustainability initiatives beyond regulatory requirements include LED lighting and 91 solar panels
  • Water-wise initiatives include a drip irrigation system, rainwater storage tanks, a rain sensor system, and stormwater capture and reuse
  • Native plant species reduce the need for additional watering and fertiliser
  • Considerable steps are taken to ensure the heat island effect is reduced through:
    • A light-coloured roof
    • The use of materials such as glass, engineered wood, concrete and aluminium
    • Raised rooftop planting areas to maximise vegetation cover
  • A minimum of 90% (by volume) of demolition, land clearing and civil works materials/product was recycled
  • Energy-efficient lifts result in no machine rooms, intelligent automation, and standby modes
  • Concrete with more than 30% supplementary cement materials and more than 30% of recycled aggregate was utilised, with PVC products supplied from an ISO 14001 certified supplier or equivalent
  • Aluminium window frames comprised of 20% recycled materials

  • Water-wise initiatives include a drip irrigation system, rainwater storage tanks, a rain sensor system, and stormwater capture and reuse.
  • Native plant species reduce the need for additional watering and fertiliser.
  • Considerable steps are taken to ensure the heat island effect is reduced through:
    • A light-coloured roof
    • The use of materials such as glass, engineered wood, concrete and aluminium
    • Raised rooftop planting areas to maximise vegetation cover
    • Shading pergolas installed on the rooftop
  • A minimum of 90% (by volume) of demolition, land clearing and civil works materials/product
  • Energy-efficient lifts result in no machine rooms, intelligent automation, and standby modes
  •  Concrete with more than 30% supplementary cement materials

Bela

Bela

Bela by Mosaic was Mosaic’s first Gold Coast development, designed in partnership with Rothelowman. Located in Mermaid Beach, Bela has highly coveted coastal views to both the northeast and southeast coastline and views of the hinterland and mountains in the southwest.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic Gold Coast beach shacks of the 1950s, Rothelowman has reinterpreted the architectural language and qualities of the quintessential modernist ‘beach home’ through a collection of 119 vertically stacked ‘beach home’ apartments over 25 levels.Spacious living areas have a seamless connection to expansive balconies, with lavish and clever interior design bringing indulgent opulence to every residence.

High-quality finishes and appliances, custom joinery and stone benchtops are celebrated throughout, complimented perfectly by an exquisite range of 22 luxury facilities. The building is crowned with an exclusive club on Level 26, hosting a wine cellar, private dining rooms, kitchen, beautifully appointed library, lounge and media room.

Mosaic Property Group is incredibly mindful of the footprint it leaves behind, not just on communities but also on the environment. Some of the sustainability measures undertaken at Bela are:

  • Bela’s exemplar subtropical design includes clever passive features that reduce solar heat load and provide for natural breezes. Horizontal slab projections shade glazing to minimise solar impacts in summer and improve energy efficiency by 35%.
  • A 20kW rooftop solar panel system that feeds directly into a communal power supply, reducing energy costs.
  • A 30 000L water tank and automated irrigation system that capture rainwater for re-use, reducing water consumption and sustaining the extensive landscaping.
  • Considered ventilation measures with palisade balustrades improve energy efficiency by up to 35%, extensive balconies with full-height sliding doors and naturally ventilated corridors, eliminating the need for air-conditioning low-use spaces.
  • Generous, genuine deep planting accounts for 11% of total site area and native species enrich street appeal and thrive in the harsher coastal environment.
  • The upper sub-penthouse level of the project was designed to be interchangeable with the lower typical levels – this flexible floor plate design created efficiencies in building and provided a clever response to market conditions.
