Elenberg Fraser is again collaborating with Hecker, Phelan & Guthrie for Fridcorp on Lilli, a 15-storey mixed use development which comprises of residential apartments, retail, offices and carpark located in Claremont St, South Yarra.
Lilli will be a positive addition to the emerging architectural language of Claremont Street and the surrounding precinct. The building responds to the existing streetscape by presenting a form which reads clearly as a singular, contemporary element, creating a strong identity and a clearly recognisable address.
The building is wrapped in a series of sculptured banded elements creatinga flowing, organic building form which passively maximises natural light, shade and ventilation creating a distinctive new contemporary form on this iconic street.
Working with Edra from the start, Italian designer Francesco Binfaré has produced some of the brand's classics, including the recent Pack and Chiara sofa.
