About The Mayfair

Located within a bend of the street wall along St. Kilda Road and between two regional parks, the design of The Mayfair presents a sculpted façade turning the corner with Bowen Crescent. The fluidity of the external structure, made up of large balconies provided for each residential unit, was inspired by the landscapes and coastlines of Australia and evolved from a system of simple wave formations. During the design process, an algorithm was developed to the craft the façade as a series of panels, minimizing the costs typically associated with customization while providing for an exterior cladding which accentuates the building’s non-rectilinear site and provides for the uniquely textured exterior.

The design of The Mayfair included an active rooftop with swimming pools and seating areas for residents, while the ground level emphasizes a pedestrian friendly streetscape with a tall first floor designed for businesses to engage with the adjacent sidewalk. The construction of The Mayfair was to replace another high-rise, the 17 story St. Kilda Road Police Complex.
