Ninety-one apartments spread over eight levels form the basis of life in Estelle, with a range of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments giving you the flexibility you need to match your home to your lifestyle. The process of architecture is akin to the search for identity, and Elenberg Fraser has imbued Estelle with a character that is as rich and complex as that of any human being. The design appeals to the cultural diversity and complexity of Richmond’s inner city context. The modern façade of concrete, steel and glass reflects this desire, with a nature that is both multifaceted and ephemeral.
Viewed from the front, the exterior of the building can be seen as a reflection of its environment, with images from the surrounding landscape built into architectural form. From the Burnley Street perspective, the façade relates a snapshot of your journey: a cultivated expanse of concrete, timber and verdant plant boxes that reflect both the industry and community of your new neighbourhood. Estelle’s exterior is deliberately designed to fragment its surroundings with artistic affect, transforming the substance of life into tangible, resplendent form.
Underneath the cutting-edge design of Estelle lays a strong foundation of practicality, liveability and comfort. Each apartment within Estelle has been created individually designed to maximise the sense of space and to open up to the stunning views that surround, taking advantage of natural light wherever possible. The result is a generous, light-filled space that remains bright and open throughout the seasons.
Kitchens are the epicentre of the home’s activity, and apartments within Estelle have been designed to incorporate kitchens that adhere to the quality of a chef’s own space. Stainless steel bench tops offer ultimate functionality and cleanliness; generous open shelving provides easily-accessible storage space for your culinary repertoire. Aesthetic elegance has been considered in every aspect of the kitchen’s design.
Bathrooms have been designed to achieve a sense of elegance and timeless appeal through maximising the sense of light and space. Crisp, white, over-sized wall tiles provide a simple backdrop to ornately detailed feature tiles, lending the space a textured sophistication. Display shelves are ample enough to discretely house your personal items, with the vanity basin and a timber shelf providing additional storage space. Warm tones and textured surfaces with the highest quality porcelain fittings and matte
black taps give the space an air of sophistication and permanence.
Richmond is the beating heart of the Australian sports and entertainment and industry, and an internationally renowned destination for tournaments and sporting events.
Just a few stops on the 48 or 75 tram will put you at the centre of it all, in the midst of the iconic MCG Stadium, Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, and AAMI Stadium. You’ll never miss a match again.
