Apartments in the sky

231 Smith Street

Built on top of a busy restaurant and dance studio, these apartments benefit from their elevated location that affords uninterrupted views to the Dandenong Ranges.

Our brief was to design flexible, affordable apartments in a building shell designed by architect Grant Amon. The distinctive, curved external form of the building was replicated within the apartments to maximise ceiling heights and provide drama to each apartment. The compact kitchens were designed to provide a high level of amenity but keep the living areas as generous as possible.  The flexible plans include large sliding screens, which allow the apartments to be opened up or closed down, and generous joinery to maximise storage.
