Tapestry Residences

Tapestry Residences

Tapestry is a 22-story residential apartment complex located in the small neighbourhood of Chevron Island, Gold Coast.

Surrounded by the serene waters of the Nerang River, this development offers 113 meticulously designed apartments, catering to homeowners seeking a balance between simplicity and modern comfort. SIERA and BDA Architects classily integrated biophilic design, sustainability initiatives, and community engagement to create a harmonious living environment for its residents to enjoy a unique and sustainable community.

Throughout the design process, a conscious effort was made to create functional spaces that harmonize with nature and add value to day-to-day living. Evident throughout the complex, this approach is seen through the generous communal areas on the ground floor and on the rooftop which feature lush greenery, providing residents with a serene oasis amidst the urban landscape. This biophilic design not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also contributes to improved air quality and well-being.

Tapestry’s rooftop is poised to be a truly standout feature of the project. Encompassing sustainability and a sense of community, a fruit/herb/vegetable garden has been allocated to a generous portion of the rooftop. Residents can actively participate in cultivating their produce and fostering a sense of community and self-sufficiency. This garden not only provides fresh, organic produce but also serves as a hub for social interaction and shared knowledge about sustainable living. The community actively encourages composting in this space, diverting organic waste from landfills and turning it into nutrient-rich soil for the garden. Composting not only reduces waste but also aligns with Tapestry’s commitment to circular and sustainable practices.

In a further commitment to environmental sustainability, SIERA has incorporated certain technology to the building including solar power solutions to the rooftop, to harness clean energy from the sun, reducing the complex’s reliance on traditional energy sources and contributing to a lower carbon footprint. To enable sustainable transportation, SIERA has provisioned the building with the required EV charging infrastructure, recognising the importance of sustainable transportation. This initiative encourages residents to adopt electric vehicles, further reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting eco-friendly mobility.  In recognition of the changing work landscape, Tapestry offers a generously sized communal office space. This amenity supports remote work and reduces commuting, aligning with the evolving needs of residents in the digital age.

Tapestry embraces the essence of community living on Chevron Island. The development’s features and initiatives create an environment conducive to community engagement. The development actively integrates with the local community on Chevron Island, fostering a sense of belonging. Residents can enjoy the unique offerings of the island while benefiting from the sustainability initiatives within Tapestry.
