GALLERIAArchitecture / On-Going / Residential
Taking the form of a cluster of buildings, the four-leaf clover style structure of Galleria features sinuous curve forms that interconnect and loop, creating a dialogue between the buildings.
Featuring 267 apartments with retail on the ground floor, the 15-storey building’s façade features symmetrical coloured banding, one half white and the other clear. The semi circular lobby area features curved forms to mirror the building’s exterior. Concealed mailboxes, a faceted bronze mirror, a chandelier and marble colours add to the luxurious feel of the building.
Following best practice from Asia pacific, with an interior that embraces leading edge technology, shopping and luxury style, Galleria appeals to families looking to move to the area, providing incomparable apartment living with access to excellent amenities including transport, heath and education facilities.
Ground level retail spaces connect to an important pedestrian spine, leading to The Glen shopping precinct, bringing a slice of Melbourne’s iconic laneway culture to the suburbs.
Residents can choose between two colour palettes – Antique Bronze complete with dark flooring and off white tiles, or Copper, complete with duck egg blue tilling and pink grout to reference the building’s sense of high fashion. Loft style timber floors run through the living areas and small format porcelain tiles in the wet area provide an important textural layer, creating a visual link to the kitchens.
Subtle storage is provided with a run of overhead cupboards, integrated fridges and pantries. A shoe and linen cupboard is smartly tucked away next to the sleek open shelving and an optional island bench provides an intimate seating area, while a study nook with optional desk caters for the study worker.
Galleria continues the ongoing urbanisation of new town centres, with each apartment offering magnificent views of the CBD and the Dandenong Ranges.
