Canberra’s evolution to apartment living has been elevated in recent years, far from banal, many residences on Lonsdale Street carry an attitude, architectural finesse, and intrigue to passers-by. The Palko building is designed to stand out, to captivate, to speak louder than a mere aesthetic. It’s a dynamic building home to some of Canberra’s most loved creators and artisans, as well as residents that demand something special from their homes.
Although the extensive use of concrete speaks to a brutalist form, Palko mirrors architecture that is simple and honest to its materials in their pure form.
When done well, this is the type of architecture that endures.
A home of glass and windows are never static. The gentle play of the light cast through the extensive glass panes and internal skylit stairwell optimise solar access and create an uplifting home of sunshine and a sense of space. During the course of the day residence.512 is animated by changing light, patterns wandering across the floor, morning sun and dappled afternoon shades. Natural light, along with high ceilings accentuates the open floor plan and expands living, dining and kitchen areas to outdoor space and views extending out over both Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain.
The interiors embrace a splendid interplay of Japanese simplicity and organic materials of Scandinavian style, characterised by a stylistic design movement, the apartment is defined by its simple emotions and elegant details. Generous proportions are softened and refined by luxe textiles, bathrooms are enveloped in floor to ceiling mosaic tiles with timber panelled ceilings, leaving you feel immersed and relaxed, this is a home designed to be felt, and experienced.
Illuminated by light, lifestyle and location, residence.512 provides a skyline sanctuary above the bustling community of Lonsdale Street, with the best food, coffee, wine, flowers and nightlife Canberra has to offer, literally at your doorstep.
