St Kilda’s streetscape has long been home to innovative architecture and the modern design of 181 Fitzroy Street continues this legacy. Much like the Art Deco and Bondi-style apartments before it, the design embraces both its surrounds and its prominent location.
A series of architectural parapets and a crowned layered façade respond to the streetscape while a rich palette of textural masonry cladding, along with timber panel accents, enhance the character of the design. The generous terraced balconies have been carefully designed to embrace natural light and take full advantage of the spectacular, uninterrupted views across the bay, parklands and city skyline.
While the lobby, characterised by high ceilings and ornate detailing, impresses in scale and grandeur, it’s the innovative amenity that make it an ideal place to live. 181 Fitzroy Street boasts three fully-staffed roles to serve the needs of the building and residents: a building manager, full- time cleaning staff and a concierge to ensure unsurpassed lifestyle convenience. The concierge is the residents’ gateway to exceptional lifestyle benefits such as complementary chilled food storage space, shared car services and the private booking of communal spaces.
