combines environmental benefits and amenities to enhance the
context of the building.
ith an enlivened ground floor foyer,
retail space and luxury residences,
Sunday Apartments is setting new
benchmarks in mixed-use design.
A 10m-wide central atrium forms the core of
the building and provides a community zone for
residents. Two separate linear forms are joined at
the podium to form an ‘H’ profile on the eastern and
The atrium space is bounded by a single loaded
corridor with a passive ventilated glazed facade
that creates connectivity between the residential
floor and the community amenity of the landscaped
terraces. It also provides cross-flow ventilation
to the apartments.
The glazed facade is further articulated with
a combination of coloured glass and aluminium
louvres that are manually operated, allowing
residents to control the flow of air while adding
movements and variety.
Jack Merlo Landscape Design created a space
that could cater to groups of people while still
maintaining a great deal of privacy and sense of
personal space. The Level 3 podium incorporates
a north-facing outdoor pool, landscaped terraces,
a spa and entertaining area – a unique feature in
Melbourne. It offers covered and open cabana areas,
a barbecue zone, open-pit fire and a tranquil garden.
Internally, the apartments feature a ‘pod’
concept design, which ensures full realisation of
the living spaces. Joinery units, provided by GOS
Australia Pty Ltd, offer a functional pod that houses
the usual necessities in a central unit.
Furthermore, apartments come complete with
Miele and Fisher & Paykel kitchen appliances,
and Rogerseller bathroom fixtures and fittings.
