308 Carlisle Street epitomises refined apartment living in Melbourne’s bayside, marrying purest architectural forms with a considered curation of materials that sits comfortably in the established streetscape.

Town planning requirements dictated only two storeys could be visible at street level, however significantly recessed upper levels allowed for the construction of five.

Inspiration for the external expression came from surrounding buildings that exhibit a sense of solidity through masonry construction, a strong rhythm of vertical structural elements, repetition of detail, and the contrast of fine mouldings against heavy structural elements. As a result, 308 Carlisle Street shares similar ideas, albeit expressed in a contemporary, refined manner.
