Not content with simply designing a beautiful, distinctive and iconic piece of architectural ‘art,’ Koichi Takada together with Aria have sought to design luxury homes which emulate the natural environment as much as possible – optimising natural light and natural ventilation.
“What you often see in high-rise buildings anywhere in the world is the ‘box’ – a closed in space, completely artificial, air-conditioned. What we wanted to do was to bring the outside in. With 3-metre high ceilings, the ‘dancing balconies’ which give every apartment the corner apartment feel, warm materials, wooden floors throughout – all of this comes together to create a welcoming space, designed for people and communities,” Mr Takada said.
The South Brisbane apartment will also feature Australia’s first double-story ‘rooftop club’ – two levels of exclusive resident’s facilities devoted to wellness and lifestyle. From pools and spa rooms akin to a 6-star resort, to a private bar complete with sommelier, offering a regular showcase of Australian wines.
“We really expect this building to appeal greatly to a range of people, but particularly downsizers, who value space, elegance, quality facilities and easy proximity to the art and cultural events nearby,” Aria Managing Director, Tim Forrester said.
