Shimmering surprise

Shimmering surprise


Trésor is a sparkling combination of prized location and trophy architecture.  


Trésor means treasure in French and Trésor, a new South Yarra apartment masterpiece, is precisely that. Trésor, situated on the corner of Chapel Street and Alexander Avenue in South Yarra, overlooking the Yarra River, Melbourne’s CBD, Port Phillip Bay and the Dandenong Ranges, is a premier apartment building that sets a new benchmark for life in Melbourne, the city of the arts, fashion and food.

Featuring only 99 apartments complete with a 24-hour concierge, original artwork, private 20-metre Olympic lane pool, steam room, gymnasium and theatre, this distinctive residence boasts the internationally recognised architectural skills of Wood Marsh, with an exclusive commissioned sculpture by acclaimed artist Mira Gojak.

Occupying one of the most prized locations in Melbourne, Trésor will be a medium-rise building of 15 levels skinned in a glass sculpted concave exterior that will literally shimmer in the sunlight.

Located in what has most recently been the home of Lamborghini Melbourne, the neighbourhood is defined by the arches of the 1920s-built Church Street Bridge and prestigious South Yarra buildings by Boyd, Lawson, Desbrowe-Annear and Wood Marsh themselves. The building will reflect light with a pewter reflective glass curtain tinged with a rose blush.

Trésor will deliver a selection of one- to four-bedroom dwellings with the top-end floors occupied by four-bedroom apartments boasting commanding east, north and west views, generous light-infused living spaces, ensuites, a generous entertainer’s dining room, smart kitchen with elite European appliances, climate-controlled wine cellar and an elegant powder room. Interiors will be amazingly flexible in planning, with a study that can simultaneously transform to a sitting room and studio space.

For the interior palette, Wood Marsh director Randal Marsh has selected either light or dark monochromes with a high sense of materialism, offering people a blank canvas which they can then embellish. Quality European fittings and appliances will be furnished throughout.

Highly acclaimed architects Roger Wood and Randal Marsh, the architects behind Yve and Balencea, have accrued countless awards including the National Walter Burley Griffin Award for Urban Design and the Australian Institute of Architects, Residential Multiple Award for Balancea.

Wood Marsh projects appear in publications and exhibitions globally and some of its work has been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria, the Australian National Gallery, RMIT University and private collectors. Wood Marsh has been judged nationally and internationally, as possessing great conceptual strength and clarity.

Apartments within Trésor range in price from $530,000 to $5,000,000 dependent on size and positioning. Construction is anticipated to commence in July 2011 with completion expected late 2012.

In an exclusive collaboration with Wood Marsh Architecture, Trésor is being developed by Cosmos Properties in association with Landsolve, a Queensland Funds Management Group.
