Balaclava Apartments

Location: Melbourne, Australia

This high end commercial residential project was designed to allow its Jewish residents to respect halachic practices on special religious holidays.

The design of the building itself and the automation of lifts, lighting and appliances were planned so that no manual operation of any part of the building was required on holy days.

The project was required to present a contemporary state of art and design, be finished with high quality fittings and finishes and achieve a successful commercial outcome.
