Millswyn Street, South Yarra

22-26 Millswyn Street calls on an environmental characteristic common to both Italy and Australia: a mild climate that encourages maximum enjoyment of an alfresco lifestyle. To this end the development features an element well known in the Italian design lexicon: the loggia. Originally developed as a living space in both urban palazzos and rural villas, the loggia is an enclosed colonnaded living space. In this case, the loggias are protected by sliding timber plantation shutters and warmed in autumn and winter by outdoor fireplaces.

The development contains only three full floor apartments, containing 3 bedrooms, study and library spaces, large gallery spaces for display of artwork, a large living area flowing onto the loggia area, and generous garden courtyards to the ground floor residence.

An elegant and understated fa├žade features travertine columns, fine wrought ironwork and polish oak and bevelled glass entry doors.

This development continues the concepts first introduced at 155 Domain Road and extends them in a distinctly Italian design direction.
