On Wednesday night I had the pleasure of attending Little Projects intimate dinner at their newly completed ILK Apartments in South Yarra. Little Project’s Managing Director, Michael Fox, hosted the evening in the Penthouse suite, which also happens to be his own apartment.
Little Projects with Cox Architects and Mim Design have successfully mastered the art of creating apartments that feel more like luxury hotels. On Wednesday night I was given a tour of the amenities within the development. Never have I seen something so impressive. A swimming pool that overlooks Prahran, a sauna, a steam room, a gym, a communal BBQ area, indoor and outdoor cinema facilities, a dinning and lounge room to host a party of up to 30 people…and wait for it, an orchid!
The dinner was incredible, and prepared by George Calombaris’ Mama Baba team. Special guest for the evening was the extremely stylish Megan Hess. Hess sat down with Michael Fox in between main and dessert and gave us all an insight into the world of fashion illustration. Hess generously gifted a print of her original artwork for ILK Apartments to all of the attending guests, as well as a copy of her new book.
A truly wonderful event, and it was so refreshing to see such generosity and attention to detail. Little Projects are certainly changing the way developers operate, and this I believe will make for some very exciting project development in the future.
Stay tuned as I will be interviewing Michael in October and taking a closer look at ILK Apartments and Little Projects.
