a location without equal
Design inspiration came from the site’s history and the views of Melbourne and the Yarra River, with the building’s curved form designed to respond to the bend in the river it overlooks. Created not just as a residence, but a beautifully refined, impeccably designed ‘forever home’, this is a building with international design DNA flowing through every space. Because of its unique location, 661 Chapel St’s uninterrupted views can never be built out. These sweeping views encompass not only the iconic river, but also Melbourne’s CBD, impressive night or day, bay views to the south, and the greenery of the park-like campus of Melbourne High School.
661 Chapel St comprises spacious one, two, three and four bedroom residences across 30 magnificent floors, including a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop. A soaring private lobby spanning four levels features a gallery-like space filled with renowned artworks, and six-star hotel-like amenities on the ground floor and level six all combine to deliver the ultimate luxury lifestyle experience.
They say first impressions last forever. From cobblestones suggestive of old-world charm to the soaring four-level private lobby, your first grand entrance under the cantilevered pool will be one to remember. The porte-cochère is expertly paved and landscaped. Step inside and you will immediately sense the ambience one experiences in the world’s most exquisite hotel lobbies.
The main foyer is a 4-storey, glass lantern lobby featuring a grand crystal chandelier. This space leads to an artfilled walk where you will be mesmerized by Lalique glass pieces curated by renowned artist Damien Hirst. The walk is a place where beautiful art forms part of the everyday ‘home coming’ experience.
Lalique, to the delight of art connoisseurs around the world, has collaborated with a selection of renowned artists, including the famed British artist, Damien Hirst. An artist of immense talent, Hirst moves beyond the typical boundaries of what defines art. His work connects intimately to the human experience and challenges contemporary beliefs in the process. The Lalique-Hirst collaboration has resulted in a magnificent vision entitled Eternal. The motif is the butterfly, presented in three forms that represent love, hope and beauty.
