Illoura House
426 St Kilda Road, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Illoura House is situated on a significant corner of Melbourne’s most renowned boulevard. The 18 storey mixed-use development features premium residential apartments alongside a selection of serviced apartments and incorporates a roof garden terrace, ground level retail and exclusive amenities.

Inspired by the historic mansions that once dominated St Kilda Road, the building imparts a similar sense of gravitas, enduring materiality and refined design. The clearly expressed ground, podium and tower come together to create a distinguished building. The composition is founded on the idea of a tripartite order and stacked forms which provide strong geometric clarity.

Gridded frames and delicate screens differentiate the façade and are punctuated by windows that enhance the impressive views outwards. In addition the screens help to filter light, creating a warmer atmosphere, which in turn gives the development a resort like atmosphere.

At the heart of the development is a generous central courtyard which extends the garden experience inside and creates a welcoming and relaxed sanctuary for visitors and guests. Amenities, such as lobbies, pool and gym are centred around this focal point.

A large landscaped garden occupies the rooftop of the podium. Designed for residents, this generous communal space is oriented to maximise views to the surrounding the parks.

The apartment interiors exemplify sophistication, imparting a handmade quality to each residence. Natural materials such as stone, timber and metal are celebrated in different ways in order to provide a rich and tactile experience.
