Standing proudly alongside South Yarra’s iconic intersection, Toorak Road and Chapel Street, ILK is a contemporary multi-residential development that will exceed Melbourne’s expectations of apartment living.
Designed by leading architectural practice, Cox Architecture and constructed by Hickory Group, ILK offers bespoke one-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom apartments with spacious balconies and three-bedroom penthouses with views of Melbourne’s city skyline, the bay and beyond.
Responding to the immediate streetscapes of the famed Forrest Hill precinct, the project is of an impressive scale spanning 24 floors however the building seems only a few storeys tall from street level.
The building’s south podium that faces Toorak Road offers an intimate introduction to the main building that adjoins at the rear, with the base dedicated to retail opportunities.
The robust façade features a delicate combination of contrasting yet beautifully paired materials, including pre-cast concrete, timber, zinc, tinted glass and steel, ensuring the building ages beautifully while standing the test of time.
