QV8 Apartments, QV Melbourne

Location \ Melbourne CBD
Client \ Grocon + May Constructions, Breathe Architecture
Completion Date \ 2014

This niche residential project involved the fit out of a previously disused parking level at the landmark QV8 project. Working with very tight spaces, and low ceiling heights, the public spaces and terraces were all very carefully designed to add maximum residential amenity in this premier city setting. A large terrace to Apartment Eight hangs right out over Russell Street, and is designed as a robust ‘piece of city’ using recycled timbers and hard-wearing natural stones. Planting is restrained and intended to become a food landscape of Olive Trees, herbs, and seasonal underplantings.
