YOUR LIFESTYLE

Queens Domain is ideally located to offer residents everything from parklands, to entertainment, to great food and fashion. With views overlooking Albert Park, Fawkner Park and the city itself, it’s more than a home for residents; it’s an urban sanctuary, offering a lifestyle of choice and instant access to the very best of Melbourne.

Located just 2km from the city centre, residents can travel by foot, bicycle, tram or car along St Kilda Road, the world famous Melbourne boulevard lined by evergreen trees and the natural gateway to the city. Step out your door and face a different direction, you’ll find Chapel Street just a short walk to the east. As home to international brands and fashion, along with some of Melbourne’s hottest night spots, Chapel Street has long been renowned as one of Australia’s premier food, shopping and entertainment precincts. Promenade south around the lake and you’ll enter the cosmopolitan fold of St Kilda. The foreshore paths and esplanades, colonnaded by enormous

palm trees, connect the waters of Port Phillip Bay to the expansive fields of Albert Park. Equally important, getting around or even out of town is just as easy. From secure underground parking you can exit onto Queens Lane which provides direct access to Kings Way, M1 Freeway, Princes Highway and CityLink which will take you to Melbourne airport or anywhere else in greater Melbourne with absolute ease. This location was carefully selected because it provides residents with the best that inner-city living has to offer, as well as an enviable, sought after lifestyle.

DESIGNING QUEENS DOMAIN: AN INTERVIEW WITH THE CREATORS BEHIND THE VISION

‘The graceful form of Queens Domain will add to the precinct and contribute to Melbourne’s rich and diverse architectural story.’

Koos de Keijzer. Principal, DKO

Sonia Simpfendorfer. Creative Director, Nexus

Q: Tell us about your inspiration for the innovative design.

Q: Where did you begin the design?

A: The site is located on Melbourne’s bustling Queens Road, lined by buildings from various eras and different styles. When viewed from Albert Park, one can see a narrative of Melbourne’s architectural history emerge. Amongst them are some proud contributions by Frederick Romberg a world renowned Modernist architect. The Stanhill and Newborn Flats are beautiful functionalist buildings with sweeping open balconies and fine glass detailing. Queens Domain takes up the next thread in this story, re-interpreting existing elements, whilst showcasing the design and construction techniques of our time. Q: How have you approached the outdoor spaces? A: The generous setback from Queens Road allows for the creation of a front yard for residents to enjoy. The apartments feature deep balconies and the curved form of the tower provides shading, particularly on the west. In terms of the shared space on the roof deck, we wanted people to feel like they’d found a private resort 20 storeys in the sky. The roof deck includes barbeque areas enclosed within a tall glazed balustrade. This provides breathtaking panoramic views while ensuring protection against wind. Q: The views from the building are stunning, but what about the views of the building? A: As a prominent part of the urban fabric of Queens Road, Queens Domain respects the established setbacks and contours of the skyline defining the area. The outline of the building has been softened by using exciting, next-generation materials with a range of textures and degrees of transparency, as well as curved balcony and façade elements. Queens Domain is a building that balances sculpture and structure. It has a very contemporary design, yet it’s respectful of its surrounds and place in history. Its elegant form will add to the Queens Road precinct and stand as an important part of our chapter in Melbourne’s rich architectural story.

A: We wanted the residents of Queens Domain to feel delighted with their home, so with every internal element we asked ourselves – how would this make me feel? We started with our knowledge of design and the latest trends. Then we tailored our design approach to suit the Australian lifestyle and environment. This means a strong connection to nature, embracing natural light, an active lifestyle and a focus on individuality and choice. I think we’ve managed to balance high-tech functionality and a stylish aesthetic with the warmth and timeless appeal of natural timber and stone. This combination creates interiors that evoke a sense of timeless wellbeing and an enduring natural lifestyle. A: The interiors are designed to enhance the soft edges and curves of the external architecture. We wanted to harmonise life inside the building with the public domains and parklands it observes. We wanted to bring these feelings of space and nature into the interiors, while creating a sense of luxury that’s akin to a world class day spa in New York or Switzerland. This is felt the moment you enter the lobby. The ground floor sets the sculptural form of the space. It has a curving, multi-layered ceiling that magnifies the interior architecture and sets the tone of the journey to follow. A: We designed the interiors to feel spacious, natural and timeless. White and timber is the most classic pairing of interior finishes. The use of ambient lighting, imported Italian joinery and European stone floors creates a controlled but natural environment. And the use of high-technology, surfacing materials to form seamless benches for the Italian designer kitchens from Snaidero, creates a sleek and contemporary style inspired by the building’s external material while creating a sense of wholeness and connection for those who live here. Q: What guides the look and feel of the interiors? Q: How do you want people to feel when they’re inside Queens Domain?

THE BUILDING

YOUR ADDRESS

Queens Domain is situated in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious locations. During the gold rush when Melbourne’s most influential people moved to the area, they brought the most significant architects of their age and this tradition has continued ever since. Queens Domain embraces and builds on this legacy. The building’s beautiful and contemporary design respects the iconic buildings around it, and represents an evolution in the Functionalist aesthetic favoured by architects such as Romberg and Boyd.

Koos de Keijzer and the team at DKO have adapted the designs of these masters, adding sweeping elegant curves and an intricate façade comprised of fine glass work and moulded solid surface material. The quality of the building combined with the strength of the Queens Road address, means occupants can enjoy a sought after lifestyle and instant access to Melbourne’s best parklands and precincts.

THE BUILDING

YOUR HOME

Queens Domain is more than just a place to live, it’s a place to feel. Created with an innovative focus on the user and a feeling of wellbeing, the building’s interiors are infused by a carefully crafted environmental design to treat the human senses. This approach was inspired by New York and Switzerland’s most exclusive day spas. The building’s organic curves have been engineered to let natural light in and keep the bustling city out, while the air conditioning system and soft backlighting creates a feeling of warmth that people will want to return to. Similarly, no effort has been spared to create ideal, modern spaces to live.

The apartments have elegant interiors and open-floor plans with natural, European stone flooring. The apartments showcase Italian designer kitchens from Snaidero , featuring well placed cupboards and workspaces. These, along with the generously sized surfaced countertops moulded in one piece, maximise space and functionality. The floor-to-ceiling glazing breathes light and life into each apartment’s open spaces, while the natural curves of the balconies accentuate expansive views of the city, parks and the bay.
