Saint Moritz is a residential beachfront development shaping the next wave of architecture in St Kilda through its distinguished combination of luxury lifestyle, design and location.
Fender Katsalidis has been engaged by Gurner to design and deliver a residential precinct consisting of three mixed-use buildings that offer scenic views and a high level of amenity to a discerning apartment market.
The Saint Moritz precinct is situated in the middle of the vibrancy of the famed beachside suburb of St Kilda. The design has taken cues from the rich urban fabric and natural surrounds, including the rippling of waves and undulating sand patterns synonymous with the waterfront.
A sense of serenity is achieved through a design that engages directly and effortlessly with the interplay of light, air and water extending from beach to horizon.
Saint Moritz’s collection of buildings are refined and simple in form, while remaining at home in this eclectic locality.
The expansive development will consist of 133 spacious apartments, 15 office tenancies, 3 levels of secure basement car parking, retail, food and beverage on the ground floor and 5,000sqm of dedicated residential amenity.
Living spaces are seamlessly connected to the outside with balconies wrapping around the building’s exterior. Select apartments feature luxury design features such a floating fireplace, wine cellar, solid Nero Marquina bathtubs and private pools integrated into the facade, each with a visual connection to the bay and beyond.
Leading the design, Fender Katsalidis is joined by project collaborators Koichi Takada Architects, Jack Merlo and David Hicks.
