South Yarra, Melbourne
The Capitol is a new residential, office and retail development designed to exploit South Yarra’s vibrant mix of culture, dining, shopping and riverfront recreation. The residential tower brings together two elliptical forms, ensuring that light and shadows play across its surface. The design creates an elegant, slender composition of dynamic character, changing with one’s viewpoint and the weather.
Entered through a new paved garden square, the sheltered porte cochere leads from the hotel-like ground floor to residences and penthouses of exceptional quality, generous in scale and proportion, and crafted from beautiful materials with meticulous care. This is an environment which is truly metropolitan, yet provides a place of sanctuary.
The Capitol Club gives residents access to a 25 metre pool, gymnasium, club lounge and elevated gardens which offer a calm contrast to the energetic neighbourhood below. The pool pavilion extends into the garden, with an undulating ceiling and perimeter skylights which capture and soften the water experience, contributing to an atmosphere of calm contemplation.
