Leading property developer Mirvac has teamed up with interior designer Brahman Perera to style the resident only spaces at their new Melbourne apartment development, The Albertine.

Brahman Perera, more commonly known as Brem, is behind the interiors of some of Australia's favourite restaurants, including Entrecote in Prahran and Ursula's in Sydney's Paddington.

Working in collaboration with Mirvac Design, Brem has been tasked with styling The Albertine's lobby and concierge area, resident’s Elysian ‘private dining’ Room, and The Albertine’s Experience Gallery, which provides future residents with a preview of what’s to come. 

Brem said he wanted to create a layered landscape of new and treasured pieces that allow each space to feel warm and honest, encapsulating a contemporary lived-in feeling, with inflections of affability with locally made and designed furniture, in line with the vision to create a layered life of luxury.

“Throughout  The Albertine’s Experience Gallery, there are amazing pitted and charred timber pieces and tables by Bieemele, a furniture maker based in Red Hill, as well as a large custom timber and sand-cast iron dining table from another local designer, Daniel Barbera.

The artwork was selected to embody and represent local artists, with paintings by Eleanor Louise Butt, Stephanie Jook, and Elefteria Vlavianos, Brem's favourite piece is a solid oak sculptural totem by Hugh McCarthy. 

The $200 million project will home 98 large format one, two and three-bedroom apartments across 15 levels at 31 Queens Lane, a prime 2,323 sqm site just off Albert Park.

It features extensive amenity focussed on health and well-being. The Circadian Club, intended to echo a rejuvenating urban sanctuary, comprises an indoor pool and spa, state-of-the-art gym, yoga and pilates studio and sauna. The Elysian Room will be a residents exclusive dining space on level 10, enjoying sweeping views across Melbourne.

The Albertine marks Mirvac’s third apartment launch announcement in Victoria in six months, following the successful sales launch of Trielle at Yarra’s Edge and Prince & Parade in in Brunswick.

Mirvac is also preparing to launch MEKKO, its collection of highly sustainable apartments at The Fabric, its future-forward masterplanned community in Altona North.

Mirvac’s General Manager of Residential Victoria, Elysa Anderson, said The Albertine would reflect the quality of Mirvac's highly successful apartment projects, The Melburnian on St Kilda Road, and The Eastbourne in East Melbourne.

“Demand for quality, well-designed and constructed apartments remains strong, underpinned by low unemployment, wage growth, the return of overseas migration and scarcity of quality product. We recognise Victoria’s historically low apartment pipeline and remain focused on accelerating our supply of apartments that are built for tomorrow,” Anderson said.

“The Mirvac difference, as defined by the quality of our builds, design excellence and diverse amenity, is increasingly valued by our purchasers in the current climate.

Anderson said launching The Albertine comes at a time when there is increased appetite from owner-occupiers for lifestyle-focused, well located apartments complete with high-quality amenity.

"Capturing this unmet demand is a significant opportunity for us, particularly with our strong value proposition of delivering exceptionally designed residential apartment buildings in outstanding locations.

“Distinguished by its boutique size, The Albertine is a new residential landmark for Melbourne and Mirvac’s latest prestige offering, following in the footsteps of our legacy apartment buildings in Victoria,” Anderson said.

Early works are expected on site in late 2023.
