Brisbane’s West End is set to add an exclusive development to its community with Amersham — a thoughtfully crafted and boutique inner-city residential offering.
Wonderfully presented by Di Marco Group and TG Development and set to launch on 10 August 2019, Amersham brings quality living in a perfect location.
Designed by award-winning local architects, Arkhefield and inspired by Brisbane’s sub-tropical environment, Amersham has been crafted with an open spine to facilitate natural, cross-flow ventilation that allows natural light to permeate every corner of the building.
With just 24 two and three bedroom residences available, Di Marco Group’s managing director, Adam Di Marco, admits the philosophy of ‘less is more’ was also very much a key ideal for the development.
“We could have originally done 40-45 units on that site, but instead we opted for a building with much less," he said.
“This allowed us to reshape the project and break it up to reveal an open spine that runs through the façade to bring copious amounts of air and light into the apartments.
“Our idea was to honour the site as best we could. So we used the fact that it’s elevated and north-facing and created a more exclusive range of larger, more open, homes.”
Each interior focuses on the ‘intangible’, where time has been spent on creating spacious apartments, with more volume and more height — making use of the abundance of natural light.
“Amersham has been designed to embrace five key principles: light, volume, air, quality and nature. Not only have we maximised the sunlight entering the living spaces, but our priority has been to create a natural palette using earthy tones, light timber, and stonework.
“We also focused on the functionality of each apartment, presenting quality fittings that complement the use of natural materials.”
As well as premium interiors, Amersham finds itself in an ideal location at the heart of Brisbane’s West End. Here, residents are never far away from the acclaimed dining and lifestyle scene that has made it such a sought-after address.
This area also brings a unique sense of community, where locals are proud to call themselves ‘West Enders’.
“You’re within walking distance of one of the best high streets in Brisbane,” said Di Marco. “The site is just 100 metres away from a host of fantastic bars, restaurants, clubs and cafés.
“We also have the first newly-built inner-city public school 50 metres away from the site, as well as public transport that can take you into the CBD just 1 kilometre away.
“Perhaps more important than all of that is the community that surrounds the area. The West End is one of those rare parts of Brisbane where lots of different cultures come together to produce its own identity. We want to embrace and honour this when presenting Amersham.”
Up above, residents have outstanding views of the surrounding areas and the city from a botanical rooftop terrace garden. This leafy retreat offers 270-degree panoramic vistas and provides the perfect haven for residents to get away from the stresses of modern life.
“Given that there are only 24 apartments, it will be like you have your very own rooftop garden. This offers owners incredible privacy and security due to its carefully considered design.
“Our ground-floor apartments will even contain terraces or courtyards, giving some residents their own backyard at this sought-after address.”
