Domain House, South Melbourne / Melbourne, Australia, / Combilift 543MR, Combilift 552, Parklift 450

Domain House is a masterful design statement in one of Melbourne’s most prized domains. Over 19 levels, the building’s architecture has been considered to optimise natural light, views and proportions for a diverse selection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences that will be amongst the city’s finest. The building includes a series of high-end, shared spaces for upscale entertaining and wellbeing.

Architect: Bruce Henderson
Builder: LU Simon
Completion: 2023

Systems: Combilift 543, Combilift 543MR, Combilift 551, Parklift 450
Parking Places: 112

A façade of double height columns and intersecting horizontal blades surround the building, anchored by a podium then rising to a tower set back into the design. The rectilinear grid formation of light columns bordering dark glazing creates a sense of volume and three-dimensionality, while also framing the views from inside looking out. An enclosed glass prism extends from the podium, visually connecting to the tower above, as it creates a striking space for residents to entertain and lounge. The overall vertical expression of the architecture is emphasized by perpendicular planes intersecting at every second floor to give the tower its tall, elegant aesthetic.

The parking facilities have been optimised by using a unique split level design, with the front facing entrance leading to the podium parking which utilises Combilift 551 systems to double the available parking spaces on a given footprint. and the rear entrance leading to the basement parking area.

Within the 2 basement levels, parking has been optimised using a combination of Combilift 543MR systems - in B1 where only 11 traditional parking places were possible, the potential of this development was unlocked and a whopping 49 vehicles have been acheived.
