Kiama, NSW, Australia
- Coms Developments
‘Kiama Blue’ is a mixed use tourism and conference development on a 7,000sqm waterfront site in the NSW coastal town of Kiama. The scheme involves the refurbishment of a former primary school and the addition of a number of new buildings to create a 70 suite boutique hotel, 8 executive serviced apartments, an exhibition centre, conference facilities, and hospitality services such as restaurants, cafes and bars.
KANNFINCH was able to establish a strong rapport with the local community through a consultation process which was important due to the sensitive nature of this prominent site. The popularity of the venue and the success of the businesses within the site are a testament to this design process.
Sustainability initiatives in include water collection and recycling, passive design principles, use of natural ventilation and retention of major trees.
