15-17 Marriott Parade, Glen Waverley – In Planning
The corner block site at 17 Marriott Parade, Glen Waverley caused turmoil back in April last year when it sold for $4.71 million. Adjoining site, 15 Marriott Parade was sold for $2.4 million dollars and together, these sites combined have smashed residential sales records in Monash, selling over the $7 million mark.
The site is in a prime location on a combined area of 2169 sqm corner block opposite the Ibis hotel and Monash City Council.
Architeria Architects were engaged to design apartments on this site and the brief was to create a stunning new landmark for Glen Waverley. A site like this deserves something outstanding and the result of the brief, an apartment building consisting of 63 units, is now in planning.
The architecture is prominent with its bold curves and shapes. The building materials are a blend of tinted glass, metal cladding and render. The two frames are interlocking with the roofline like a piece of modern jewellery.
Mel Gawi, Principal Architect of Architeria Architects says that the design has allowed for soft and curvy corners, enhancing the principles of Feng Shui. Further, the building is shaped as a number 8, a prosperous number, as the two curves meet in the middle to expand along the sides.
The internal courtyard allows for natural cross ventilation throughout all the apartments and creates a peaceful oasis for the residents to enjoy.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to design an apartment building of this nature” said Mel Gawi. “As the site sits on the fringe of all activity, I believe the architecture will not only blend in with the higher density buildings across the road, but be a positive contribution to Glen Waverley in general.”
