The recently completed Alexa on Mt. Alexander Road features 89 one, two and three-bedroom apartments over seven levels. Due to an elevated position, spectacular views to the city are captured from apartments facing south and east.
History and geology have shaped Alexa’s distinctive architecture. It’s most pronounced and striking feature is the gold coloured metal screen that wraps the sixth level, forming a visual ‘top’ to the building, is inspired by the site’s connection to Melbourne’s gold rush era.
The seventh floor, additional to the predominating building heights, was secured through a clever design strategy which sees two large penthouse apartments set back from the building envelope and almost disappear from sight at street level.
Contemporary, minimalist interiors complement the playful finishes of the exterior. Attention to detail prevails internally, with an emphasis on quality joinery and storage space. Light oak was used for the timber flooring, while fixtures were finished in a metallic hue that calls out to the perforated gold metal exterior feature.
