Trinity Point is set to deliver an innovative, high quality mixed-use hotel, hospitality and residential destination on the foreshore of Lake Macquarie. The architectural design takes the form of six gentle, hill-shaped buildings that reflect the surrounding Watagan Mountains and provide an identifiable architectural statement.
The site is located at the end of a natural peninsula and benefits from access to Lake Macquarie on three sides. A conscious blurring of boundaries creates an environment where tourists, community and residents can access the grounds to enjoy the landscape as well as a high level of amenity. A major public pedestrian boardwalk for recreational activities is met with through-site pathways between buildings to provide connection and Access to Country.
The design for Trinity Point includes innovative ESD strategies, with an aim to deliver the most sustainable hotel/residential development in New South Wales. Planted green roofs insulate the buildings for a more consistent temperature year round, and minimises resident and guest dependence upon air-conditioning. Extensive integrated landscaping mitigates urban heat gain, and promotes wellbeing for occupants.
In the design process for Trinity Point, Koichi Takada Architects consulted with the local Awabakal people's indigenous leaders and engaged in a series of workshops, which included guided discussion on heritage, culture and Connection with Country.
