In + Out
From the masterful collaboration of acclaimed design teams Particular Architects / Interior Designers, York + High is an exploration of modern aesthetics. From the streetscape the form presents as a captivating structure that, both complimenting and yet distinguished from its milieu, anticipates something of the contemporaneity witnessed throughout the design.
Soft, neutral tones are given a raw edginess courtesy of the angular, sculptural facade, while the retail spaces that welcome from the street level add a dimension of community to the building. Discernibly artisan in form, the conscious style decisions made throughout these homes have been to ensure there remains an earnest timelessness to their core: echoing the buildings we now recognise throughout history as true architectural icons.
In a precinct revered for its pursuit of architectural ingenuity, it takes something subtle and yet striking to etch its place amongst other icons of its ilk. A seamless extension of its context, York + High understands the delicate line between modern-fad and modern-classic. Timeless in its interpretation of contemporary artistry and tempered with an inherent consideration of the lives that will be lived within, these homes are as thoughtful as they are thought provoking.
With a ground floor presenting a luxurious retail and hospitality offering indicative of the local calibre, the extension and simplicity from which the privacy of home can extend into the sociability of community is as easy and fluid as merely bumping into your neighbour over an espresso downstairs
“We anticipate that the use of authentic materials, natural light and spatial inventiveness will attract people to the establishment. An exemplar inner city chic abode, York + High brings you closer to the city, with cool prahran resoundingly echoed in its urbane moods, cool façade and crafted interiors; capturing Melbourne living in one of its preferred lifestyle precincts.”

Consciously considered floorplans have been designed to blur the barriers between traditional living spaces. Fluidity between these areas, as well as internal and external boundaries, impart an air of simplicity to daily rituals while collapsing spatial delineations, making spaces feel light, sun drenched and boundless.
“The York + High residences are designed to express a sense of sophistication, offset by textural finishes and a rich, contrasting palette of materials. There is a harmonious affiliation between the architecture and interior design which is graceful yet strong in presence. Cool natural materials are framed within smooth, contrasting edges creating an elegant industrial feel to the interior spaces. It is this juxtaposition of the natural and the manmade, the smooth and the raw that allows you to relax and feel in touch with your environment.”

The juxtaposition of geometrically patterned, white tiling against minimalist, matte black accents and layered mirrors harmonise to create a space that is unapologetically modern. Boasting a curated collection of well appointed additions, there is a palpable sense of artful minimalism to bathrooms.
Thoughtful touchpoints extend to bathrooms, where the intimacy of grooming becomes an immersive experience. Elegant fixtures add a dimension of interest to the sophisticated, moody aesthetic, whilst still ensuring the palette remains clean and innately classic.
Designed with retreat and escapism in mind, York + High’s bedrooms are intimate and warm.
Soaring windows ensure rooms are aglow with an inviting, natural light while plush, softly muted tones of grey carpet rooms. With materials chosen to impart a sense of tactile delight, these spaces are as much about the art of opulence as relaxation.
