2 Girls, an interesting small apartment development in inner Melbourne suburb of Abbotsford. http://news.domain.com.au/domain/rea...10-1mi9r9.html

Billy Kavellaris, the architect of a fantastically decorative new Melbourne apartment building, describes the project as "contemporary urban baroque".

The word baroque translates as "odd, irregular, having unusual formation, characterised by much ornamentation" and even, mildly "decadent".

Kavellaris, the principal of KUD Architecture, is spot on in categorising his 30-unit 2 Girls Building in Abbotsford.

Developers are selling off the last and biggest of the two-level loft apartments with rooftop decks.

The building strongly exemplifies an emerging new fusion movement of art meets architecture and takes it way beyond perfunctory facade interest, and aims, Kavellaris says, "at creating contemporary urban theatre in a gritty urban context".

He can take a bow for having certainly achieved that end.

The development of the 15 one-bedroom studios and 15 2-3 bedroom lofts by the Domain Hill Property Group, a company that prides itself on not being mainstream, came with a brief to Kavellaris that specified two major criteria.

"Peter Cahill (of Domain Hill) said he wanted to create apartments and he wanted to use Digi-glass (decorative glass) to display a photograph by Samantha Everton from her Vintage Dolls series."

Kavellaris' take on the instruction was "to create a piece of artwork that people could live, work and play in."

Looking over the Melbourne artist's photographs, the architect selected an image of two girls in an old-fashioned sitting room.

Called Masquerade, Everton says the image (that coincidentally was of Cahill's daughters), explores slightly sinister themes of childhood memories with the models posed in a wallpapered room in a decrepit house.

This image is now gigantically amplified, and is permanent on the front and for the life of the building.

"It's not simply projected or printed on the facade," says Everton, "it's been built into the very fabric of the building."

The artist was deeply involved in the design process from the beginning.

And with her key image extrapolated into three-dimensional effects, which include concrete embossed with the wallpaper pattern, a huge stylised standard lamp as a facade fixture and night-time illumination, and even a set of drawers and skirting boards incised into the concrete to expand on the strange loungeroom theme, Kavellaris says the building "looks unreal in both senses of the word".

"It's bigger than a billboard; it's not just stuck onto a flat plane, and it blurs the boundary between 2D and 3D," he said.

"Samantha contrived the image of a three-dimensional space into a two-dimensional photograph and we've then modelled it back into three dimensions.

"When people see photographs of the building they think it's a computer-generated image."

The art-building story continues inside with a wallpapered foyer hung with a chandelier, light wells with primary-coloured tree sculptures, and common corridors that double as art gallery spaces.

The communion of art and architecture is nothing new.

But the forms and media currently being explored in this fusion movement that is gaining traction – particularly in the inner city precincts - is using unanticipated materials and imagery.

Why is it happening?

"Technology allows us to decorate three-dimensional objects and we are reaching back for ornamentation," Kavellaris said.

"Ultimately, it's because people are sick of normal, standardised modularity."

888 Collins Street (40 levels/130 metres/427 feet), in the Victoria Harbour precinct of Melbourne's Docklands, is going up rapidly. This is an article published in Domain.
http://news.domain.com.au/domain/rea...27-1m8x0q.html

Soaring vertical beams of LED light wrapped around a triangular apartment tower in Docklands will light up in response to the weather.

The 40-storey building at 888 Collins Street, in Victoria Harbour, will interpret real-time weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology and will transmit the next day's forecast every half-hour.

However, rather than showing the weather report in numbers and with a temperature display, the designer of the lighting, Canadian-born Bruce Ramus, said it would be more of an abstract representation and reflection of the environment of Docklands.

The facade of 888 Collins Street, Docklands, will reflect the weather patterns of its environment.

"If it's going to be 35 degrees, then the lines [on the building] rise up like a temperature gauge and the lights get warmer [as the temperature rises]," he said.

"If it's a windy day, you'll see what resembles gusts of wind going across the building, so it's a really beautiful canvas."

Mr Ramus said the movement of the lights, about 50 metres high, would be slow and gentle because they didn't want to impose on drivers or pedestrians.

"The forecast will represent the day to come on the half-hour," he said.

"During the half-hour, it will reflect what the weather is at that moment, and that's constantly changing.

"If it starts raining or if the temperature goes up, the building reflects it."

The construction of the Lend Lease building, designed by Australian architectural firm Woods Bagot, is scheduled for completion in early 2017.

Work continues on both the south and north banks of Melbourne's Yarra River, extending the riverside promenades and establishing more berthing facilities for boats. Mirvac's Yarra's Edge Docklands precinct has seen the recent completion of the Array apartment tower (40 levels/125 metres/410 feet), whilst Lend Lease's Victoria Harbour Docklands precinct will see 889 Collins Street extend towers even further along the former North Wharf promontory.

Lend Lease has submitted plans to build a huge $600 million waterside complex of 1070 apartments in two twin towers at Docklands on a strip of land between Collins Street and the Yarra River. The towers mark the end of development at Lend Lease's $4.5 billion Victoria Harbour precinct. Lend Lease won the right to develop the precinct in 2001. Victoria Harbour is home to a slew of corporate tenants, including ANZ, NAB, Ericsson and Myer, and several other residential buildings housing more than 800 people. Planning documents show the new complex, to be called Waterside Place, will boast two north and two south towers – the northern towers reaching a maximum height of 90 metres; the southern towers 73 metres. They will sit on 19.5-metre podiums.

The very sleek Shadow Play apartment tower (46 levels/146 metres/479 feet) has been approved. The display office opened this week and they hope to start construction in September. It's a significant site, on the corner of Clarendon Street and City Road, and virtually next door to the Crown casino/entertainment complex. One of Crown's 4 hotels, the Crown Metropol, is just metres away.

Ball gown-inspired $400m super tower proposed for Southbank gets green light
JOHN MASANAUSKAS | HERALD SUN | APRIL 16, 2015 8:30PM

A $400 million super tower whose design was inspired by a flowing ballroom gown has been approved for Southbank.

The 73-storey building proposed for 38 Freshwater Place will be one of the nation’s tallest and includes almost 500 apartments, a 390-bed hotel, shops and offices.

At 273m, it would be 24m shorter than Eureka Tower, but higher than the adjacent Prima Pearl skyscraper on Power St and the towers at 120 and 101 Collins streets.

Melbourne City Council opposed the project due to its height, “lack of meaningful” podium and lack of front and side setbacks.

But a state Planning Department report said the proposal fits the character of the Freshwater precinct and it has been approved by Planning Minister Richard Wynne.

“(It) will deliver hotel space with the consequential tourism and economic benefits and residential apartment dwellings that add to the supply in a central area,” it said.

Docklands-based firm Metier 3 designed the building, saying it took inspiration from the curvaceous, feminine form based on the cluster of existing and proposed towers in the area.

“With flowing curves and material patterning reminiscent of ballroom gowns and highly detailed junctions ... the built form will entail a sense of materiality and form in counterpoint to the more rigid forms adjacent,” the company said.

The planning report said the surrounding area included a mix of residential and commercial uses typical of Southbank and close to Crown Casino, the Westgate Freeway, tram routes and the CBD.

There were earlier concerns the building would need its height reduced to comply with air navigation rules.

Thanks PaPa R. No.73, Latrobe Tower was incorrectly reported on UrbanMelbourne as being under construction. I check regularly, and, as of a few days ago, it hasn't started. The site is being used to stockpile materials for building the Carlson Tower, which is right next door at 321.

PaPa Riddlz has posted renders of a 17 level apartment tower in the NewQuay precinct of Docklands. On one side of the site, the silver and gold Aqui Promenade towers have just started construction, whilst the 40 level Marina Towers, with their distinctive 5% tilt have also started recently. Parkland, with sporting facilities, is well under way just nearby, whilst the Docklands Film Studios are behind these waterfront developments.

Melbourne's strong population growth is a big factor, and a large education sector attracting students from "nearby" Asian countries is another. Melbourne's current population of around 4.5 million is growing at around 70,000 to 80,000 a year, and, whilst the bulk of the growth is accommodated in housing estates 30 to 40 kms from the centre, there is increasing demand for high rise apartments in the central city. Large amounts of capital are flowing in from China, Malaysia, Singapore and India, leading to some predictions of an over supply of apartments, but sales are still very strong, so we shall see.

Tower 4, in the major Collins Square development by Walker Corp., is getting more glass.

Demolition on the site of Aurora Melbourne Central apartments should begin soon, with the closure of the 10 level car park at the end of April. Aurora is the tallest of the cluster of 6 towers in Melbourne's northern precinct, near Queen Victoria Market. Here is a repost of a recent summary of the cluster.

Another mega project is planned for Melbourne's booming northern end. Full renders aren't available yet, but hopes will be high as the twin 79 level towers (267.8 metres/879 feet) will be designed by 2 leading architects. They will be next door to the EQ apartment tower (63 levels/203 metres/666 feet), which started construction recently. One block east is Aurora Melbourne Central (85 levels/271 metres/889 feet), on which demolition is about to begin, following the closure of the large car park on the site. Three major towers (Vision, 72 levels/226 metres/741 feet, Victoria One, 75 levels/241 metres/791 feet and Empire Melbourne, 55 levels/178 metres/584 feet) are already under construction within a 2 block radius, with Light House apartments (67 levels/218 metres/715 feet) about to start, as demolition is almost complete.

City apartment boom drives twin skyscrapers plan for Queen Street site
Date
May 5, 2015 - 5:45PM

Simon Johanson
Property Editor for The Age
Melbourne's reputation as the skyscraper capital of Australia will be further boosted after a Chinese developer lodged plans to build a twin skyscraper complex on Queen and La Trobe Streets.

Just six months after buying the massive corner site for $135 million, a company called 3L Alliance has submitted plans for two soaring 79-level towers at 350 Queen that will stretch far higher than the nearby 55-level Melbourne Central building on Elizabeth Street.

The completed towers at 267.8 metres will be just 29 metres shorter than the city's current tallest building, the 92-level (297-metre) Eureka tower completed in 2006.

The city's latest high-rise proposal follows hard on the heels of a series of other super-tall structures in planning or under construction, fuelled by an offshore-driven apartment boom.

Another landmark tower in Southbank is set to rise 81 levels, or 259 metres, on the corner of City Road and Clarendon Street.

It will be taller than Southbank's newly-completed 72-level Prima Pearl building, but shorter than the country's tallest building, Australia 108, which is expected to rise 100 levels, or 319 metres, on the same side of the Yarra River.

The fresh proposal is likely to test newly-elected planning minister Richard Wynne who recently rejected another high-rise apartment planed by Grocon for 85 Spring Street.

3L Alliance's structure at 350 Queen will cost $750 million to build and will include a public plaza, a creche and nearly 2000 square metres of retail space.

The towers will stand behind KTS House, a 21-storey office that will remain on the site.

The structure will dwarf its immediate neighbour, the tiny Welsh Church building.

3L Alliance is controlled by Chinese nationals Baoyu Li and Lin Xiong.

The pair purchased the site, known as KTS House, in October last year from a private Malaysian investment group Kinetics *Properties, a subsidiary of Sarawak-based lumber company KTS Holdings.

A supermarket on the corner of Queen and A'Beckett​, a two-storey car park facing A'Beckett​ Street and several single storey retail shops on La Trobe Street will be demolished to make way for the new tower complex if it gains planning approval.

KTS House has a chequered development history. It was constructed in a joint venture between local developer Warren Anderson and Japanese groups Shimizu​ Construction and Itochu​ in 1990 during a particularly speculative, over-supplied period in Australia's commercial property market.

The project became mired in an acrimonious dispute between the parties before the Japanese retreated, selling the project without completing key parts.

The towers will have about 1700 apartments with resident facilities that include four large swimming pools, saunas, spas and gyms, a home theatre, communal kitchens, karaoke rooms and a dedicated yoga studio.

The "sculpted" buildings have been designed by Cox Architecture and Fender Katsalidis​ Architects.

Only render available is this one. The church is the Welsh Church.
