Project: Thirty Anderson
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Award: Residential Interiors: Residential Developments (Apartments), Gold, 2023
Design Practice: Rob Mills Architecture & Interiors
Client: Sadikay Group
Thirty Anderson is a boutique multi-residential development spread across three large-scale luxury apartments nestled by the Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. Careful spatial planning ensures each offers a different perspective of the gardens. The three whole-floor apartments celebrate light, space and sculptural design. The penthouse design includes a living room with high ceilings and expansive glazing that offers abundant natural light and sky views. It also includes a rooftop terrace with a pool, outdoor dining and living and cooking facilities. In the mid-level apartment, roof windows bring light and space within, while residents also enjoy views towards the treeline of the Botanic Gardens. Beneath, the ground floor apartment delivers a more direct relationship with nature, connecting seamlessly to a private garden.
Materials range from richly veined natural stone, grey and silver hues to textural, polished plaster walls. Flowing fabrics introduce softness while timber flooring and complementary timber joinery add to a cohesive and calming experience throughout.
