Project: Mirvac Display Suite

Idyllically situated on the southern banks of the Yarra River in Melbourne’s Docklands, the Wharf’s Entrance residential development project is the final instalment of the comprehensive Yarra’s Edge community by Mirvac, offering luxury waterfront living inspired by international design and culture.

Modscape collaborated with Mirvac’s marketing, design and construction teams to deliver an iconic sales and marketing suite that will facilitate the sale of their residences, and encapsulate the look and feel of the development and the site’s wharfside heritage.

Unlike more traditional sales suite designs, the building demonstrates an ambitious architectural style through an ellipsoid-shaped modular form and a bespoke curtain wall glazing system that symbolises the wharf’s entrance and delivers unobstructed waterfront views via its modular design.

Consisting of four modular quadrants delivering 210 sqm of space, the interior flows between open-plan zones dedicated to 3D display models, simulated kitchen and bathroom areas, a reception, a multimedia room, and staff amenities.

The building’s interior is finely detailed and well-considered, embracing the lifestyle of waterfront living. Metallic elements including a copper-clad media room and folded plate steel entrance are blended with a grey pallete of leather and stone that gives reference to the residential aesthetic, while the inclusion of recycled wharf timber in the reception desk and external landscape totems pays homage to the wharf and its riverfront surrounds.
