Charming story of ascendance and transcendence from Elenberg Fraser

Posted on March 14, 2013 by Sian

Elenberg Fraser’s new residential project, perfectly positioned at the edge of Melbourne’s CBD, creates a vertical village that follows a story of ascendance and transcendence, inspired by the ancient myths of the angel Metatron (or Enoch, or Elijah) and Pandora’s Box.

This project’s massing is crucial to its design. Broken into a series of six white, concrete towers of varying heights, and bound by a central lift core, 33M’s profile mirrors Melbourne’s skyline, creating a city within a city – a juxtaposed silhouette of its geographic context. As you enter the lobby you open Pandora’s box and ascendance shifts to transcendence, as infinite mirrors create the sensation of a body suspended in space.

The overall impression is of a box cracked open, bronze and patterned light forming a path through the black depths. The apartments themselves are white and bronze light. Adaptable, their sliding doors enable the space to be reconfigured, residents can choose whether to integrate the front room into living environments.

33M gives you the bird’s-eye perspective and convenience of the inner-city high-rise lifestyle, with the amenity of a house or large complex. The sky really is the limit here! 33M has been entered into the WIN AWARDS Residential Interiors category. Find out more at Early Bird Discount ends Friday 15 March 2013.
