Assembly Apartment, North Melb
Assembly is only a short stroll from Melbourne’s CBD, Assembly offers cosmopolitan living at its very finest. Offering spectacular city views, the dazzling city lights are a continual reminder of this coveted location.
Assembly sets a new benchmark for fine inner-city living, fulfilling a gap in the market for high quality, low rise apartments a short walk from Melbourne’s CBD. Conceived as an assemblage of individual buildings, the village-like environment features laneways and a central courtyard.
Conceived as four separate buildings, the smallest containing just 20 apartments and the largest only 43, the individual buildings clad in concrete and metal will create a boutique address. Architectural roofs extend to form peaked rooftops synonymous with North Melbourne’s history, and like a crafted object, generous windows and balconies are cut into each form.
Light filters into the apartments from the courtyard. To maximise this light, generous terraces combine with large picture windows. The light also plays on the metal, creating a striking kaleidoscope of colours throughout the day.
The windows and terraces have been carved out of the metal forms, giving each of the buildings a lightness and openings to the immediate and wider environment. The low level development is ‘wrapped’ in greenery, with vines and creepers creating a welcoming ‘mat’ to each of the lobbies. These vines soften the edges and act as a continual reminder that nature is on one’s doorstep.
Overlooking the local neighbourhood and city vista beyond, the roof terrace provides an extension of the residents’ living rooms.
Located on the edge of the city, bound by Courtney, Capel and Queensberry Streets, Assembly offers the convenience of city living, while still being connected to a vibrant local community. Building on North Melbourne’s history, these warehouse style apartments feature a strong industrial aesthetic.
Exposed concrete ceilings beautifully compliment rich timber floors while the open plan kitchen and living areas are loosely defined by kitchen bulkheads. The finishes used for the balconies extend to the periphery of living areas, blurring the division between indoors and out. Streamlined joinery ensure a pared back contemporary aesthetic to provide a sense of spaciousness.
