The environment into which it has been rooted has shaped the form of the building. The generous entrance court is approached down the gently sloping gated drive that passes through a landscape of mature trees and complimentary planting.

An entrance framed by a vertical ribbon of glass and the dynamic tower of black brickwork leads the eye up the façade. Powerful walls of pale stone coloured stucco and beautifully crafted grey zinc shingles, rooted on a black brick plinth, support the façade and resist the forces of nature. Deeply recessed black window frames dissolve into the reflections of the glass.

The waterfront façade of the building fully exploits the uninterrupted view over Poole harbour and Brownsea Island. A simple triangular form creates a dramatic raking geometry that provides generous sun terraces for all apartments. These outdoor rooms are sheltered and protected by the stucco walls and glazed panels that seamlessly float above the anchored plinth below.

Full height engineered glazed walls with large sliding panels allow the definition between outside and inside to become blurred, creating a seamless transition of space and allowing sunlight to fill the interior of every apartment. Even the terrace balustrading has been reduced to a minimum - cantilevered frameless structural panes of glass are used to prevent any visual interference of the spectacular views.

An elegant penthouse pavilion that enjoys 360-degree panoramic views from its extensive roof terrace completes the stunning architectural form of 328. This understated space, emphasizing structure and function over ornamentation, is the ideal venue for relaxing and entertaining with its unrivalled views to the outstanding protected seascape and landscapes beyond.
