Located in the heart of Claremont Perth WA, the apartments offer spectacular views over the Claremont parklands and toward the Swan River.

On the expansive communal rooftop is a sky garden, communal lounge, library and media room, private dining area, and wine cellar.

The large private dining area and fully equipped kitchen has been designed with a timber-lined raked ceiling, bringing a sense of the warmth and intimacy you’d experience in your own home.

Adjacent to the communal lounge is perhaps our favourite room; the large, timber-lined, temperature controlled wine cellar with it’s 143 individual lock-boxes.

Using timber as the material of continuity between rooms, the designers have utilised Abodo’s thermally modified Vulcan timber as linings and joinery, bringing in a sense of intimacy by creating a warm glow with hidden lighting.

Each glass-fronted lock-box is beautifully framed by the Vulcan joinery allowing other residents to admire each other's wine collections.

With such thoughtfully designed timber-lined spaces, we can picture the beautiful summer social evenings tasting wine and cheese.
