246 Unley Apartment, Unley
Architecture + location, a perfect combination for successful modern living.
A seven-storey building, this $20-million development includes six levels of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, ground-floor retail/commercial tenancies and 60-space underground carparks all within the beautiful inner-city suburb of Unley.
A substantial number of energy efficiency initiatives have been incorporated into the design, achieving a 7-star energy rating. The apartments have been designed to maximise natural light and ventilation; they offer generous living spaces with tall ceilings and private balconies. The interior finishes are timeless and elegant with extensive use of neutral colours and high-end materials, including sandstone, parquetry, and marble.
The external façade of the building features stunning vertical green screens. The framed balconies articulate the architectural expression of the tower element of the building. Contrasting colours, layers of concrete slab edges, all serve to provide a sense of depth to the façade. Car parking, to be screened from public view, will be underground or towards the rear of the site. The development features an appealing streetscape. The retail area is modern with large glass frontages and canopies to provide shoppers and restaurant patrons with shelter from the elements.
In a busy, high-density inner suburb like Unley, while the benefits are apparent, feeling as though you have a sense of personal space is imperative. Tectvs has achieved this with abundance. From a spectacular light-filled atrium with hanging gardens, to what will be a stunning landscaped communal garden. Spoilt for choice; residents will have plenty of open spaces where moments can happen, and lives can be lived.
