qtQT Gold Coast
Located only steps away from the world-famous beaches of Surfers Paradise, QT Gold Coast is an iconic luxury Boutique Hotel and a tourist hotspot. As part of renovations to the building, Penfold Projects was engaged to breathe new life into an uninspiring area and create qtQT, a unique outdoor ‘glamping’ experience.
This Design & Construct for the qtQT project follows an ocean inspired brief paying homage to the iconic beaches of the Gold Coast now offering a unique glamping experience. The open-air space boasts a row of private cabins adorned by surfboards, an outdoor kitchen and firepit, artificial turf with multiple seating options and a mixed palette of tropical and dry climate species. The back section of qtQT features a strip of artificial turf leading to a deck offering stunning ocean views, perfect for weddings, yoga classes or private functions. Hardscape items for qtQT include the install of all timber decks and seats, concrete walls and seats as well as tiling and paving of surfaces. Vibrant gardens, turf areas and a wide selection of pots were then added to soften the hard elements of the project. Low maintenance materials that would withstand the test of time and constant exposure to the elements such as artificial turf and composite decking were a clear choice for the client.
Multiple challenges were encountered during the construction phase including the coordination of multiple trades working onsite simultaneously and the difficulty of access for stock and materials. This included craning multi-ton pots to the roof from the ground floor.
