Ari Apartments

Unique as they come, The Ari Apartments represent the best kind of mixed-use residential developments having won an ArchiTeam award. Nestled just east of Auburn Village and in the heart of Melbourne’s historical brick-making area rich with history, the residential development comprises of 9 apartments, a ground floor retail tenancy and a large shared rooftop terrace.

The structure comprises of suspended concrete slabs, in-situ columns, blockwork wall with steel and timber roof framing. In addition, there was thorough consideration given to the project’s historical adjacency to the original brickworks site, with unique brickwork assembled to create detailed exterior patterns and an interesting natural-light play to the courtyards and internal spaces.

Where possible, historical facades and a 120-year-old painted advertising sign discovered on the site were preserved to contribute to the recognition of the site’s past.

Its 9 2-bedroom apartments sit across three unique levels and includes a generous open-plan living and kitchen, ensuite, bathroom with European laundry, extra-large terraces, mod-cons, storage cages and a 13 car stacker in its rear laneway.
