St James ApartmentsRetail & Commercial
This projects looks at a general refurbishment of the common areas at the high-end St James Apartments along St Kilda Road.
The material palette features the use of bluestone, timber slats, dark carpet, coloured mosaics and textured wallpaper to bring a level of simple sophistication. On the two basement car park levels, new timber slats give more prominence to the lift entries. A graphic inspired by the leaves of the elm trees that line St Kilda Road dot the new frameless glass sliding doors transitioning the residents into their private apartments. Considered detailing across this project is extended in the steel frames that project slightly beyond the edges of the honed Fontaine Blue stone that clad the walls.
