Text description provided by the architects. Located in Southbank, Melbourne, the new 15-storey Sunday Apartments is a mix of 237 one, two and three bedroom apartments with a stunning outdoor pool, spa and entertaining area – a unique feature in Melbourne. Delivered during the period where purchasers could still take advantage of the Government’s First Home Owners Grant, Sunday Apartments re-defines what can be achieved on a budget without sacrificing design or community impact.

Capitalising on its urban context in the rapidly-developing residential precinct of Southbank, Sunday Apartments invites residents to feel part of a community, with the option to socialise in shared leisure areas, but also offering privacy. Built on a large site, the bulk of the building has been reduced by the introduction of a 10m wide central atriumconnected by a podium to create an H profile. By cutting a central courtyard into the mass of the building the apartments has transformed from a ‘box’ to a place with a unique sense of home for every resident.

The courtyard atrium provides a community zone for the residents and includes a north facing pool and landscaped terraces. Other features include covered and open cabana seating areas, BBQ zone, open pit fire and tranquil zone. The façade provides a distinctive look for the building via a combination of coloured glass and aluminium louvres. It also allows a sense of connectionbetween the residential floor and the communal amenity of the landscaped terraces, and cross flow ventilation to the apartments.

With inventive internal planning to compensate for the reduced footprints for predominantly one and two bedroom modules, design includes isolated central storage pods that contain all the services and storage effectively deleting the need for any ceilings. The Sunday Apartments demonstrates the impact of design innovation (Woods Bagot) and branding (Cornwell Design) on a high yielding property development.
