Framed by North Melbourne’s historic terrace homes, Alchemy delivers a bold architectural statement wrapped in a striking bronze facade.
Designed by innovative architectural practice Hayball, these contemporary one, two and three bedroom apartments, from boutique property developer S/Projects, brings iconic appeal to the laneways, parks and gardens of this leafy inner city location.
Offering a peaceful retreat perfectly positioned on the edge of the city, Alchemy’s apartments have curated interiors that are crafted from natural textures and tones that add a real sense of calm and clarity.
Spacious living areas feature design aspects aimed at encouraging a modern and effortless lifestyle, like oak timber flooring, expansive floor to ceiling windows and exposed concrete ceiling detail.
A plus point for these homes is the spectacular panoramic vistas of Melbourne, delivered by the West-facing balconies – further showcasing the extra-wide frontages these apartments were given. The green-thumbed will love the built-in planter boxes that help create the perfect relaxing outdoor spot for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
The designer kitchens are appointed with Asko appliances, designer black tapware and ample supply of storage in the perfectly-finished 2pac cabinetry. Home cooks will love the plentiful bench space, with the island bench providing the ideal gathering spot for entertaining friends.
Head into the bathroom and you’ll find further examples of Alchemy’s careful application of sumptuous materials, such as the Black Odyssey marble detailing and large format tiling. You won’t have to fight over the mirror – there’s generous mirrored cabinetry above a feature open shelf. Finished with designer black tapware and shower fixtures, these are calming spaces for a tranquil daily routine.
North Melbourne is one of Melbourne’s inner gems, replete with all the amenity you could want yet still alive with its own character and charm. From its array of restaurants and cool bars to the ever-popular Queen Victoria Night Markets around the corner, there’s no wonder the locals love it.
Other popular spots in the neighbourhood include Seven Seeds Cafe and Auction Rooms Cafe, whilst The Courthouse, Metropolitan Hotel and Prudence Bar will keep your nights buzzing.
Alchemy sits in the midst of a wealth of leading education options including RMIT’s Design Hub, Melbourne Design School, Melbourne University Business School, Haileybury and the progressive University High School all nearby.
In addition, the redevelopment of the area in recent years has brought some of Australia’s leading medical research facilities within walking distance, whilst you’re just a brief stroll from the city’s leading hospitals including the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Royal Women’s and Children’s Hospitals.
North Melbourne couldn’t be handier for getting into the city and its world-class mix of shopping, entertainment and the arts. But if the five-minute walk seems too much, catch the 19 or 58 trams just a minute’s walk from your front door.
