RMA is proud to have the opportunity to design a major apartment building on this rare and tightly held site opposite Melbourne’s celebrated Royal Botanic Gardens.

Rob Mills

The challenge for this site was that it was flanked on either side by heavily glazed buildings that overlooked the property – hence the design had to deliver privacy as well as responding to the view of the gardens.

Drawing on the lessons from Armadale Residence, Rob Mills introduced massive blade walls to act as blinkers and brought light in from above through the use of generous skylights.

The three apartments facing the park have deep, protective balconies, which direct views to the greenery beyond, while the massive penthouse roof terrace is complete with pool and garden.

The building code, which allows for architectural features above 12 metres, has been maximised to add to the quality of the building design and what it gives back to the street.

In addition, a rear mews allows access to a four-storey apartment building to be sited adjacent to the main three park-facing apartments.
