Elevated on the crest overlooking East Melbourne, Island House is a limited collection of ten peerless apartments. The building comprises seven bespoke residences and three full floor penthouses with private lift lobby and protected 360 degree views. Located on its own island site, Island House is a one-off boutique development from Volume Projects and Pitch Architecture, featuring Fiona Lynch-designed interiors that provide an oasis-like calm in the heart of the city.
With three penthouses, Island House brings statement living at its best to one of Melbourne’s most prestigious locations. The jewels in the building’s crown, each penthouse features 360 degree protected views across the leafy parks, gardens and streetscapes surrounding it. With direct access to private lift lobby, each penthouse redefines contemporary luxury, with Fiona Lynch’s distinctive design vision ensuring that form follows function.
A double-sided fireplace and bar area is custom-made for sophisticated entertaining while an integrated under-bench wine fridge makes it effortless to maintain a wine cellar. Sculptural elements including a huge column in the main living area add visual interest while multiple entertaining and dining areas open up to the majestic city and park views.
Within each residence, there is an immediate impression of openness and space, enhanced by vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Kitchen and dining areas feature extruded volumes, stone textures and custom detailing, elevating these everyday spaces into stylish escapes. Soft stone and timber materiality add to the warm and sumptuous material palette while directional lighting over brushed metal island benchtops creates a natural talking point.
Award winning Pitt integrated gas burners not only save space but provide a distinctive, contemporary look, while concealed fittings and closures ensure clean lines remain free from clutter.
The living spaces are designed to maximise views to Melbourne CBD skyline, the surrounding gardens and heritage precinct.
Transitions between stone and rich timber accents feature throughout the kitchen area, contrasting brilliantly with the central brushed metal island bench and sleekly integrated Pitt gas burners.
The bedroom spaces feature an elegant, pared-back palette and plenty of storage.
In the generously-proportioned bathrooms, warm tones from timber paneling and natural stone insets create a minimal, Scandinavian aesthetic.
