33M, Melbourne

Soaring residences reach for the stars...

It’s a shame you’ve got to prove yourself either useful or solvent to set up home in Australia. If they let any old British economic refugee in we’d already be hammering the For Sale sign into the breeze blocks of We Heart Towers and heading off to live in Melbourne, which seems to produce an inordinate amount of ace architecture and spiffing design.

Here’s exhibit number 2,307, the briefly-named 33M project which stands proudly on the border of the city’s residential and business districts and which is exactly the sort of place we’d like to be able to afford to live in were we to up sticks for sunnier climes. Elenberg Fraser can take the architectural plaudits for the Mackenzie Street development, the six soaring towers clad in angel’s feathers are high-reaching in concept and and high-end in finish – so they should be having cost a combined AUS$80m – with a particular highlight being the ground-level light-mesh entrance installations which hint at Pandora’s secrets cracking through a jet black casing. Ah well, one can dream…
