Paragon

Developed by Beulah International

318 Queen Street
Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia

At a privileged address in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, the design is a transformative statement of boutique skyrise living. Elegant and tranquil, a selection of large, individually conceived residences and penthouses embrace materiality and refined detail and unobstructed Melbourne views.

BUILDING LEGACY

 

Set on a natural rise, in one of Melbourne’s best-connected neighbourhoods, architecture goes beyond aesthetics to tell a narrative of a city’s past, present and future. The historical significance of the site informs and anchors the design as crafted artisan metal work weaves a geometric, Celtic inspired pattern across curtains of glass to forge an entirely new identity; a global vision for city living that transports its residents into a calm, elevated and private world by embracing refined organic materials and luxuriant natural spaces to distinguish itself from the city below.

Purposefully boutique, Paragon will be one of Melbourne’s most notable lifestyle destinations. The architecture maximises views allowing the majority of residences prized corner vistas while limiting density to between four and six residences per floor, and two penthouses occupying the topmost, 48 th level. Two floors are dedicated to a myriad of resident amenities to rival the world’s most exclusive luxury hotels.

Referencing Melbourne’s abundant green spaces, a three storey high urban forest is an conservatory-like feature, set within the building. It offers a wealth of botanical beauty featuring restful and regenerative places to unwind or entertain unlike anything Melbourne has experienced before.

At ground level, the heritage listed Celtic Club is a respected element of the design, carefully restored and retained while the interiors have been upgraded to include a contemporary bar, restaurant, lounge and outdoor terraces. Adjacent, Paragon’s impressive lobby offers a distinct sense of arrival, a private and indulgent conduit between Melbourne’s busy streetscape and a private world of tranquillity within. Premium level security technology underpins entry to all areas including remote access underground facilities for car and bicycle parking and additional storage.

 

RESIDENTS’ SPACES

 

PREMIER ENTERTAINING
Five floors above a stately lobby entrance, a landscape of social spaces introduce sophisticated design to modern Melbourne entertaining.

Enveloped in rich materiality, a series of formal and relaxed zones blur the line between public and private domain to present an exclusive entertainer’s club for residents to hold meetings, private dinners, cocktails and functions.

A professional kitchen links to the private dining room and also services an indulgently detailed lounge with custom-designed, marble finish surround fireplace and intimate pockets of seating looking across the city.

 

A LIVING OASIS

 

Open the door and step into a lush urban forest. Three storeys high, wrapped in greenery and ascending skywards, a spectacular, light filled atrium is your own private sanctuary, bringing you closer to nature without leaving home.

Refined terrazzo pavers, outdoor seating zones and blackened metal accents ground the space to reference its urban surrounds while a carefully composed selection of mature trees, leafy canopies, climbing gardens and grassy spaces are part of a perennial microclimate that breathes life into the building.

Settle under a tree with your favourite book, walk the pathways in the dappled sunshine, set up a picnic and watch the world go by. It’s a place to find nature, just steps from your living room.

Abundant natural light is a feature of every room, thoughtfully diffused for privacy in the bathroom
and kitchen by fluted glass panes housed in bold black framing.

 

HEALTH & WELLBEING

 

A multi-sensory urban resort and wellness retreat flows across the entire seventh level.

Embracing views of the city, a fully equipped modern gymnasium with state-of-the-art equipment is a sophisticated fitness zone with refined vertical wall panelling, dramatic, contrasting marble surfaces and gleaming metal accents.

More serene, spa, steam room and bath-house are a gentle, calming presence enhanced by a choreography of natural materials.

Surrounded by soothing, refined vertical wall panels, the 15 metre lap pool with feature terrazzo flooring and designer daybeds.

 

A REFINED PERSPECTIVE

 

Designed to elevate your outlook, architecture engages in panoramic views at every opportunity.

Residences start at level 8 presiding across the treetops, then ascend to the upper levels to sit within a sweeping city skyline.

 

THE PENTHOUSES

 

A PRIVATE PARADISE
From their elevated position, the Penthouses are a harmonious balance of centralised city living and an immersive refuge, away from it all.

Commanding the highest degree of design excellence and finesse, the penthouses are defined by volume, sweeping views and stately inclusions. Wrapped in walls of glass, each open plan design is engulfed in natural light.

Defined entranceways lead to gracious living zones featuring a sculptural, spiral staircase ascending to a private, outdoor rooftop terrace.

European oak floors are set against pared back modern design and expansive dining space.

The three bedroom, three bathroom floorplan also features an additional lounge, media room or studio. At the heart of the home, a professional, entertainer’s kitchen is a statement of modern elegance.

Natural marble cascades from across splashbacks to benchtops and a waterfall kitchen island to introduce sophisticated tone and texture to a space surrounded by floor-to-ceiling customised cabinetry finished in a smoked ash timber veneer.

Featuring ample storage, a range of top level Gaggenau appliances and intelligent compartments amplify the substance and style that underpins an exceptional modern living environment.

SUITE PERFECTION
Less of a room and more of a serene retreat, the Penthouse bedrooms are saturated in natural light and majestic vistas of the city and beyond.

This private domain is a cocoon of comfort and tranquility, finished with wide linear oak floors and ambient lighting.

The master bedroom includes a spacious walk-in robe and dressing room lined with thoughtful hanging spaces and shelving components.

Soak up the sheer indulgence of a master bathroom that echoes the serene features of a hotel spa.

A free standing bath, dual wash basins and refined organic textures come together in a refreshing, modern space with a focus on wellbeing.

 

INTERIOR ACCLAIM

 

Wrapped in walls of glass, considered architecture opens expansive sightlines to capture the very essence of the location, immersing interiors in natural light and panoramic vistas of Melbourne.

At an address within the heart of the city, interiors have been designed to step away from the busyness below.

Light is cast through glass and ref lected acrossm irrored and polished surfaces to naturally illuminate open spaces within. Organic textures are used acrossre fined forms, complemented by warming timber floorbo ards and brushed metal surfaces that emit a soft glow in a tranquil environment, a purposeful escape from its metropolitan surrounds.

Floorplans are distinctly larger while modern inclusions are simplified in structure and sophisticated in detail. One, two and three bedroom residences present in various configurations with select designs featuring separate study rooms, ensuites, kitchen islands and private balconies set within the building façade.

Articulated ceilings and crafted joinery are used to gently define the kitchen, dining, study zones and places to lounge. Additional storage with thoughtful compartmental detail is featured throughout. This subtle statement of elegance is upscaled with luxury features, specialist lighting and naturally inspired materials.

 

NOURISHING DESIGN

 

High function kitchens partner generous living zones in a singular statement of premier style and purpose. Created for entertaining and daily dining, the performance enhanced design also acts as an inviting social space and the heart of the home.

Superior Bosch appliances include wall oven, gas cooktop and rangehood and a Bosch or Smeg dishwasher that are discreetly integrated within expanses of floor to ceiling joinery.

The space is minimalist and relaxed with soft grey joinery to conceal ample storage including deep, soft close drawers and thoughtful pantries.

An expansive mirror splashback increases a sense of dimension within the space and becomes a reflective backdrop to the open shelving and brushed metal finish rangehood that adds another level of sophistication.

The benchtops are slender in form, cascading over the kitchen island bench that serves to extend the workspace, increase entertaining options and unify the open living zone.

Interior colour and material selections present in two options. A fresh take on classic neutrals using light tonal variations, polished gold finish tapware and subtle textural detail or, a more dynamic, modern contrast palette with bold use of natural hues, matte black tapware, emphasized detail and saturated tones.

 

INNER PEACE

 

A restorative space to bring a sense of calm to your daily
routine, the bathroom uses inviting and sophisticated
textures and tones to enhance a sense of natural beauty.

The floating, deep storage vanity, expansive mirror-front cabinetry, frameless shower and slimline fittings lighten a design grounded by the pronounced use of terrazzo features and large format textural tiles for a refined urban accent.

Select polished gold tapware for a feeling of warmth and luxe or choose bolder matte black contrasts to bring contemporary edge to a classic design.

Open shelving adds decorative detail and allows for adding a personal touch to each space.
