AMA Place is a boutique residential address located adjacent to Altona Train Station and three blocks from Port Philip Bay. The overarching objective was to capture the coastal character of the local area through a considered use of materiality, colour palette and built form as well as to capture and frame water views from as many of the apartments as possible.
AMA Place utilises the natural characteristics of the selected materials, paired with bright coastal whites, soft deep charcoals and light timber highlights. The built form references the local vernacular by adopting a boxy form broken up through texture and vertical screening elements.
The concrete form liner features bold slab edge details externally, balanced by intricate detailing in lobbies and apartment interiors. Spaces are contemporary and intentionally paired back, with high ceilings, lots of storage and home-like features such as inbuilt study nooks.
