Essence Luxury Apartments - Perth, Australia

Designed by award-winning architects Hames Sharley, Essence Apartments is contemporary luxury living at its best.

Located in the heart of Claremont Perth, Western Australia, the apartments offer spectacular views over the Claremont parklands and toward the Swan River.

On the expansive communal rooftop is a sky garden, communal lounge, library and media room, private dining area, and wine cellar.

The large private dining area and fully equipped kitchen has been designed with a timber-lined raked ceiling, bringing a sense of the warmth and intimacy you’d experience in your own home.

Adjacent to the communal lounge is perhaps our favourite room; the large, timber-lined, temperature controlled wine cellar with it’s 143 individual lock-boxes.

Using timber as the material of continuity between rooms, the designers have utilised Abodo’s thermally modified Vulcan timber as linings and joinery, bringing in a sense of intimacy by creating a warm glow with hidden lighting.

Each glass-fronted lock-box is beautifully framed by the Vulcan joinery allowing other residents to admire each other’s wine collections.

With such thoughtfully designed timber-lined spaces, we can picture the beautiful summer social evenings tasting wine and cheese.
