K1 Residences by Optimus Developments is located at K1 Union Street Melbourne and offers a unique point of difference to other developments on the market. as it is one of the most unique selections of residences to come onto the market this year.
Rising 13-storeys, K1 comprises 13 full floor residences covering an area of over 175sqm representing a rare opportunity to purchase full floor apartments with commanding 360-degree views. K1 seeks to provide owner occupiers with the ultimate luxury of living space with expansive views in every direction. These single floor luxury residences overlook Albert Park lake through to the gleaming towers of Melbourne’s CBD, Port Phillip Bay and the leafy boulevards of St Kilda Road.
K1 has been designed by architectural firm DE atelier. The design has been inspired by the surrounding lush parklands and features full-grown trees, which will be deep planted on the K1 facade – the effect of which will be an arrangement of 'sky gardens.'
Additionally, K1 has sought to address the needs of discerning buyers and respond to an evolving market. DE atelier Architects have designed a residential apartment building that provides residents with all the the benefits and amenities associated with city apartment living but with the spatial qualities and characteristics of detached family homes.
The building's facade is influenced by the leafy streets of Hawthorn and Brighton with trees extending the height of the buildings. All homes within K1 are offered an outlook to these 'street trees' and it is here which has led to a unique design response. K1's exterior will present a striking, dynamic form to the street that is further softened by the curves of its sinuous balconies, which provide expansive views towards the city and beyond. Timber elements have been added to bring a more human scale to the spaces.
K1's design seeks to provide a private home that engages with nature and the surrounding context, which the design acknowledges and celebrates.
The ground floor apartment will feature an expansive outdoor leafy landscaped sanctuary with a 200 SQM private garden and an exclusive residents only entrance. A glamorous penthouse will crown K1 with a stunning 135 SQM entertainment terrace, sleek rooftop lap pool and breathtaking 360-degree view.
Wendy Bergman, renowned for her hospitality and residential interior masterpieces has selected a rich, earthy palette of exquisite finishes such as marble, rich timber and luscious leather which is off set by cozy wool carpets, to create a home that is both sophisticated and comfortable. For K1, Bergman and Co, is collaborating with Melbourne’s internationally acclaimed local designers such as bespoke lighting and custom shelves by Paul Grummisch of Please Please Please with sparkling jewel like lights by Mark Douglas.
Construction is expected to commence in the new year.
The surrounds of K1 have been acknowledged and have helped inform the identity of the building. The urban streetscape, and especially, the gardens of Albert Park and the mature tree lined St Kilda Boulevard have inspired the greening of K1. The apartments will feel like grand established mansions with private gardensLeon Eyck, Director, DE atelier architects
