The Melbourne project, which drew media attention due to its marketing strategy of asking prospective purchasers to pay $2,500 to secure a spot at the launch, sold 107 apartments in 90 minutes at its opening weekend.

Designed by Plus Architecture inside and out the vision behind the design is intended to bring an element of South Yarra to Glen Waverley, providing luxury and style. “Our goal with Galleria was to accentuate light and dark tones and allow residents a choice of colour schemes, ensuring each apartment breathed luxury in every way through the clever use of opulent interior details such as antique bronze or rose gold accents,” says Plus Architecture’s Senior Interior Designer, Narelle Cuthbert.

“The antique bronze details and luxurious dark flooring throughout the interiors, along with the unique aesthetic of duck-egg blue tiles and feature rose gold grouting to the bathrooms, help reference the building’s sense of high fashion, with metallic finishes adding a modern twist.”

“An optional island bench provides additional storage and creates a meal area, while a study nook with an optional desk caters for students and professionals with Galleria conveniently located in a number of coveted school zones and just a short walk from Glen Waverley Secondary College.”

Galleria takes the form of a looping, figure eight configuration of a cluster of buildings. Featuring sinuous interconnecting curves that creating a dialogue between buildings and environment.

The entrance lobby area features curved forms to mirror the exterior of the façade, while concealed mailboxes, a faceted bronze mirror, chandelier and marble colours provide residents with a sense of opulence as soon as they arrive home.
