131 Residences South Yarra
Architecture and Interior Design
Embodying a strength and clarity of concept which permeates all aspects of the architecture, the external form is one of shifting planes. The careful study of overlapping frames, deep recesses and cantilevered forms presents four unique residences in a boutique development envelope.
Each of the interiors take cues from the overriding concept of shifting planes, ensuring a satisfying sense of the forms echoing one another; of repetition and symmetry.
Generously sized spaces flow one to another, barely reined in by their framed enclosures. Floor-to-ceiling glazing, with fine framing, allows the barrier between the interior and exterior spaces to virtually disappear. While this enhances the feeling of space, it also connects to nature both visually in terms of the sense of greenery from the garden and in the way sunlight is used to animate the interior spaces.
Robust and poetic, the development provides an environment that is intimately protected from the street and its neighbours, but benefits from expansive outlooks of the city and surrounding landscape.
