Conceived by the multi award-winning Hillam Architects as an urban retreat that blends the sophistication of luxury international resorts with the relaxed coastal atmosphere of Swanbourne, Aria Apartments represents a new vanguard for multi-residential living in Western Australia. And for David Hillam, principal of Hillam Architects, the project is reflective of the growing expectations of apartment purchasers, who have come to equate downsizing as an opportunity to maximise lifestyle.
Set within an expansive and elevated deck enhanced by tropical landscaping and
a communal cabana space, an infinity-edge pool is orientated to maximise commanding views across the Lake Claremont Golf Course to the CBD beyond. Overlooking the pool deck and accessible via glazed stacking doors, an elegant residents’ lounge offers a place of respite and relaxation.
Residents have access to a timber-lined yoga studio and massage space which, complemented by a state-of-the-art gym, allows residents to balance exercise of the mind, body and soul.
Across the seven levels, generously proportioned apartments enjoy comfortable
open-plan living, full-height floor-to-ceiling glazing, and oversized outdoor terraces, emphasising the perception of light and space. High levels of craftsmanship, integrated cabinetry and concealed storage allow for a streamlined way of life. Penthouses are defined by double-height living spaces and expansive rooftop retreats.
The sharp angles and pristine white fascia of the buildings’ structure are complemented by slatted timber-look screens, deep balconies with angled windows and golden-coloured, anodised aluminium screens, creating a striking statement that will become a landmark for residential living.
Aria Apartments reflects the progressive and pragmatic design approach of Hillam Architects, which has been nurtured over the past 25 years of working with clients to design and deliver architecture that enhances their lifestyle aspirations.
