Ukiyo Apartments, Prahran

Inspired by the Japanese artform of Ukiyo-e, ‘floating world’, Ukiyo Prahran has been designed around the idea of cantilevering forms that appear to float. The verticality of the building is framed by detailed black lines, green walls and concrete panels and fins that create a rhythm and movement to the façade. This movement, has been inspired by the train, tram, car and pedestrian movement that surrounds the corner site. Internally the details of the façade continue in, with strong black lines in joinery details and carefully selected fluted glass elements.
