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.
Drainage is often the forgotten workhorse of the building and design function. Yet drainage maintains a simple albeit vital purpose.
