Next successfully delivered the design and construction of this high-end residential development within a 19 month timeframe and achieved for the client the best balance of cost, function, efficiency and maintainability.  The development comprises 71 apartments of one and two bedrooms and two three bedroom penthouses across two adjoining towers over ten levels with three levels of basement parking.

The development features an array of high quality external and internal finishes. The striking facade utilised a Vitrabond system consisting of copper and champagne coloured aluminium composite panels differentiating the Mirage from other residential developments in the area.

Complementing the facade are anodised bronze and gold louvres on external windows and satin black framed balcony doors and windows. Internal finishes comprise high quality fittings and fixtures such as European kitchen appliances, laminated veneer kitchen joinery, engineered smart stone benchtops and splashbacks in the kitchen and bathroom and timber flooring. A landscaped communal rooftop garden is also a feature of the development.

To meet the client's needs, Next worked collaboratively with the client, architect and service consultants during the pre-construction stage  to assist with the management of the design process. This ensured any buildability issues were identified and resolved as early as possible and a fast track program could be established.
