St Kilda Rd, Melbourne
Client: Merchant Pacific Pty Ltd
Spowers completed the architecture and interiors for this 19 storey landmark apartment building on St Kilda Road. It included base building interiors and bespoke fitouts for penthouses.
The project was designed for the premium residential market comprising a diverse collection of one, two and three bed apartments and penthouses which respond to various niche markets.The apartments sport an outdoor entertainment courtyard with water features that travel through the building to finish at the steps of the apartments.
Other features include extensive car parking and indoor swimming pool and gym.
To enhance the feeling of space and livability, the design incorporates higher than usual floor to floor heights. Whilst this “lost” a floor in terms of possible mix, the result adds capital gain and value.
Balconies are also larger then normal and built into the apartment floor plates rather then being “bolted on”.
Designed as a vertical village, Aurora provides larger living areas and a great variety of apartment size, each of which is designed with views either of Albert park Lake or the South Yarra Precinct.
