Sweeping views, casual gatherings-enjoy the best of life from the upper communal lounge area.
Escape the throng and relax in the sky. The communal upper podium area of Live City is where your life of repose comes together. Find a quiet place, together or alone, with a communal bar and lounge cascading out to the podium deck. Soak up the sunshine or relax amongst the greenery and shade.
Marvel at an uninterrupted panorama of the Melbourne CBD and the local area as Footscray unfurls beneath you.
A grand and serene entrance
The lobby becomes a transitional space that buffers the energy and activity of the outside world from the interior experience. Here you can adjust the senses — the noise softens, the pace slows and we move from the exterior towards the inner landscape. Naturally ventilated and gently illuminated, it is a space to literally take a breath of fresh air before continuing your journey.
The design elements bring together old and new. Soft, earthy finishes reference the site’s original heritage as a ropeworks factory; while metallic hints reference the increasingly contemporary community of Footscray. Walls are gently sculpted to produce a calm atmosphere and the height
of the void creates a feeling of subtle drama as the eye is drawn upwards. Crowning the lobby experience is a feature ceiling pendant, complemented by an arrangement of greenery to enhance a naturally balanced state.
Designed to capture the best angles, each apartment enjoys floor to ceiling glazing to invite in the maximum amount of natural light and warmth during the day. Expansive outlooks over the city and precinct make the living experience expansive, this approach extending out on to generous balconies, where privacy is maintained through screening elements.
Inside, the natural and neutral colours and textures reflect the earthy, tactile rope factory heritage. Metallic elements in a choice of two colour schemes serve to highlight the calm base, bringing some subtle energy and the play of shifting, reflecting light into the space through elements on the joinery.
