    Our new residential project in South Yarra navigates nature and artifice. Sitting adjacent to pretty pocket park Rockley Gardens, the building and apartments enter into a dialogue with the leafy landscape next door, the gardens becoming part of the building itself.

    Apartment interiors have been informed by the village life of South Yarra and the urban lifestyle that flourishes in the surrounding streets – the neighbourhood is a secluded enclave of cultural experiences: libraries, galleries, cafés and boutiques. Material palettes reflect two sides of this coin: the garden, with green marble and dark timbers, or the gallery, a soothing blend of blonde woods and grey marble. Spatially, a series of rooms flow into each another creating a long gallery-like configuration. Custom joinery elements and detailing have been designed to enable you to communicate your individual narratives – collections, art, tchotchkes – the objects that tell the story of who we are.

    This is an Elenberg Fraser definition of luxury, permissive architecture that gives you the freedom to express your unique identity and to curate your own life. So, you’ll find bathrooms that are far more than functional, with marble inset vanities and double-sided mirrored cabinets, which sit closed or stay open for more storage – you choose how to put your own adventure on display. Bespoke kitchen islands have built-in shelf storage either end, and marble cladding on range hoods is an artwork in itself. Picture rails, pot fillers and detailed alcove joinery for accessories provide the amenity of home in an apartment. A celebration of the natural assets and urbane pleasures of South Yarra, Rockley Gardens is a living building that fully embraces its lifestyle locality and the power of individual expression.

    Elenberg Fraser is an expert in multi-residential architecture and interior design. Elenberg Fraser creates experiential interiors that you feel, rather than simply see. We design these spaces with careful consideration of the unique requirements of diverse groups of users and occupants; we use qualitative and quantitative research to inform our solutions. Our interior designs are inspired by a broad range of influences that reflect our diverse interests and passions. Step inside our projects and be taken on a journey through art and science, popular culture, the natural world and historic events. We have designed interior architecture for commercial, residential, hospitality and tourism sectors, but our approach to ensuring comfort, flexibility and sensory delight remains constant. Our interiors use considered and sometimes unexpected textures, finishes and furnishings, many of them custom-made, to bring our designs to life and to make spaces for living. We are frequently engaged to design a building’s exterior and interior architecture, which allows us to blur the lines between inside and outside by integrating the surrounding environment into interior spaces.
