AS MORE Brunei investors eye Melbourne as a property investment destination, they are spoilt with endless choices and options for their money. Aside from the usual elements of consideration such as location, developer’s reputation and price, buyers are increasingly shifting their attention to design.
An up and coming project in Melbourne best illustrates the standard of development in the market by showcasing a spectacular collaboration between acclaimed developer, Gurner, and renowned architect Elenberg Fraser to bring the Zen-style Japanese apartment concept, Ikebana (Pictured) into the world’s most livable city.
Ikebana, which stands for Japanese flower arrangement, consists of 241 apartments across four buildings, namely Keshi, Sayuri, Sakura and Little Sakura. The four boutique buildings are linked by peaceful Zen gardens and a beautifully landscaped courtyard, which allows the owners to experience an exclusive place of luxury and tranquility on the edge of the city. The boutique consists of a collection of apartments, with a star private club which offers sumptuous living space and an unparalleled lifestyle.
The heart of the design is inspired by the quietude of nature, the play of opposites and the balance of line and space. Within these homes is a vigorous sense of structure and order which provides residents with a sense of peace and freedom.
This project is set to complete by the first quarter of 2017, with studio apartments starting from AUD$330,000 while two bedroom apartments start from AUD$550,000. Ikebana, along with Future Valley, another iconic project by Gurner in Melbourne, will be showcased in a private Inspire Living and Baiduri Prestige Banking event at The Empire Hotel & Country Club on Friday and V Plaza Hotel in KB on Saturday.
