Last year EcoWorld completed their second Australian apartment development, Yarra One, offering a high end point of difference in Melbourne's South Yarra.

There are a limited selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments still for sale in the Claremont Street development, which was designed by the award-winning Fender Katsalidis team.

They took inspiration for the tower from the surrounding areas, focusing on pure geometry throughout their design.

There was a higher level of finish at Yarra One compared with other high-rise towers, from the fine grain of the chevron timber floors to the custom-designed pendant lights.

Orientated to take in the maximum possible views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, the living spaces of each apartment have been created as open plan as possible, with the kitchen, dining and living spaces ordered to take in the views.

Some apartments feature a butler's pantry, island benches, and premium Miele appliances

The amenity has been designed as an extension of the apartments, with soaring double-height ceilings across a resident dining room, library and wine cellar.

Residents also have exclusive access to a wellness precinct that homes a gym, outdoor spa, dance studio and yoga room.

Luxuries continue down to the car parking, with Yarra One offering a Tesla car-share service, and pet wash facilities.

Fender Katsalidis wanted to create a striking entry from Claremont Street. The atrium design is reminiscent of the bustling laneways that Melbourne is famous for.

“The timber look trellis enclosing the atrium is a signature feature that acts to create a sense of retreat and allows light to filter within the space throughout the day resulting in an ever-changing environment,” Fender Katsalidis Director Nicky Drobis said.

EcoWorld recently has launched Lifestyle One, a 24/7 all-round app which allows residents to do everything from making massage appointments to hiring a butler.

Apartments at YarraOne start from $455,000.
