A NATURAL FLOW

While the design of the Aspire Melbourne tower evokes the grandeur of its elevated heritage, the land beneath was once a picturesque composition of lush greenery, earthy terrains, and shimmering water. These natural elements have informed Elenberg Fraser’s approach to the design of the podium; conceived as manicured green layers that rise above reflective surfaces.

Large planter boxes bordering the podium level apartment balconies create a sense of respite and sanctuary within the bustling city shrouded in lush landscaping.

 

A MAJESTIC FRONTAGE

Across the podium levels, the verdant façade of Aspire Melbourne merges with the trees that line the surrounding streetscape. Green elements that cascade down the human-made design create a seamless bond between urban and natural forms. An activated ground floor interacts with the flow of pedestrian traffic and provides a tranquil haven for residents to pass through each day. This lush expanse makes a lasting impression on all who pass by Aspire Melbourne.

 

A SPACE OF REFINEMENT

The hero of the beautifully landscaped podium is a stunning indoor pool. Seemingly carved from a single material, the pool references the shape of an Australian billabong surrounded by materials that evoke the natural landscape. Walls of glass offer majestic views over Flagstaff Gardens and the city, so that morning laps or an afternoon splash can be enjoyed against a spectacular backdrop.

 

A LIFE OF LUXURY

The amenity at Aspire Melbourne is unsurpassed. Across multiple levels, the building is home to everything needed for an exceptional life. An array of private spaces are available to be booked including a grand ballroom for special occasions. For more intimate gatherings, a champagne conservatory, a whisky lounge, pre-function rooms, and an expansive lounge with captivating views over Flagstaff Gardens provide opulent entertainment spaces.

At Aspire Melbourne there are activities to engage minds of all ages, with a table tennis arena, VR/media room, pool hall, games and media suite. A fully equipped gym with an outdoor personal training area, sauna, steam room, hot and cold spas, pool and hydrobath provide a focus on wellness within luxurious surrounds.

A REMARKABLE GATHERING PLACE

Whether looking to hold intimate dinner parties or cocktail and canapé celebrations, the private dining room is a highly refined space for entertaining in style.

 

A PRIVATE DAY SPA

A GRACEFUL STORY

Aspire Melbourne’s interiors are designed for tomorrow’s city, with a selection of next generation homes that offer sanctuary and respite for cosmopolitan urbanites seeking to recharge.

The rich history of the site provides a romantic narrative for interior spaces, with tales of the Victorian gold rush inspiring the selection of textures and hues.

 

A BEAUTIFULLY-APPOINTED SANCTUARY

The tower’s prime position provides residents with sweeping panorama of the gardens, dynamic outlooks into the bustling city and spectacular vistas across Victoria Harbour into the Yarra River estuary.

 

A PLACE OF POISE

Dramatic split face stone surfaces in the kitchens speak to the focus on nature, while bespoke metal elements reference the precious metals of the gold rush era. Here, simple, functional forms are accessorised with considered materials including metal, stone and timber. Generous island benches ensure effortless meal preparation, and shelving with backed highlights provide celebrated central pieces.

 

A TRANQUIL HAVEN

Within each Aspire Melbourne bedroom, a light, restrained colour palette and a natural material selection create a subtleness of design and a sense of calm. Gold accents continue the historical references that flow throughout each residence, and expansive windows maximise views out over the city.

 

A REFINED RETREAT

place of subtle elegance, each Aspire Melbourne bathroom is defined by a pale palette formed of white tiles and joinery, stone benches and mirror splashbacks. Gold elements continue to weave their way through these spaces designed for peace and relaxation.
