A Look at the Design of Melbourne Square’s Residences

Melbourne Square was architecturally designed by international award-winner COX Architecture and was influenced by the cultural heritage, greenery and grandeur of the city. Sue Carr’s team designed the interior of the residences and was inspired by the building's architectural form and its garden landscapes. Both designers collaborated to help create intelligent spacious apartments that showcase spectacular views of the city. 

As a part of the Life & Style edition curated by Coco Republic, Melbourne Square apartments include four fresh and unique design themes including; The Bondi with coastal decor, The Manhattan with mature dark aesthetics, The Paris flaunting everlasting luxury and The Soho with an industrial chic theme.

All Kitchens feature an opulent marble block island with Kohler tapware and state-of-the-art Miele appliances creating a luxurious space to prepare meals and a secondary area to dine at. Bathrooms come with dual vanities equipped with modern tapware, generous spaces for storage, large mirrored cabinets and a semi-frameless shower. 

All bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with homes positioned to enjoy natural light and the breathtaking views of the city, an integrated heating and cooling system, and spacious wardrobes. Master suites include automated block-out blinds that extend and retract with the flick of a switch. Plus, if you need the flexibility to work from home, custom-made study nooks are available and walk-in wardrobes will give you plenty of room to store all of your clothing items.
