The opposite to the village offering – a ‘no community’ apartment development in Melbourne

Published on

Described in the Financial Review as an ‘apartment bubble’, 31 Coventry close to Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens is a 21-storey development that will feature ‘direct-to-residence lifts which can be called either via an app or from your home, meaning you never need to touch any surface or share the space with others’.

The architects Elenberg Fraser have designed 28 apartments of either full or half floors, eliminating communal corridors.

Completing the ‘bubble’ only ‘fresh air’ circulates, not recirculating air.

The 28 apartments start at $1.6 million.

Lower levels of the project however will have ‘76 small office/home office (SOHO) residences’ according to the Fin Review. A high-density community?
