Contrasting materials are unified by the presence of simple lines. Vertical fluted timbers and glass meet strong black lines to frame pattern and texture together. Porcelain tiles are cut and arranged to produce subtle and intimate patterns, while considered use of the bold cote d’azur marble, contained within thin black steel frames adds a bold contrast of strong, natural pattern.
Fluted glass obscures views into wardrobes and bathrooms, filtering light and creating connection between communal and private spaces. Fluted texture is also found in the kitchen, paired with warm timber tones and the strong, defining line of the black benchtop. Heavily veined marble references back to the Japanese style, and paired with Wolf appliances elevates the kitchens to a luxurious space.
Connecting to the unique characteristics of the suburb of Prahran, each apartment is afforded at least three active facades. Framed views from the ocean to the city skyline allow the interiors to transition seamlessly from soft, quiet mornings to vibrant and energetic nights.
