Located in the historic Boyd designed Domain Park Flats, this apartment offered near pristine preservation of the 1959 original design.

Working from the foundations of the modernist Boyd designed framework, this elegant apartment uses the generous natural light to create an open and welcoming interior. Stained oak timber joinery and plush carpets complement these natural highlights to create a sense of luxe retreat in the heart of the city. With a concealed bar and balcony with vista views, the open plan living space makes for an inviting heart of the home.

The tone of the cabinetry and stone complement the striking brass fittings and ensure a subtle point of interest and continuity throughout the apartment.

Respecting the original design and by adding contemporary interior elements, Domain apartment offers a timelessly elegant retreat in the middle of Melbourne.
