St James is comprised of just 22 contemporary residences located in the premium, tree-lined suburb of Glen Iris.
C. Kairouz Architects have expertly orchestrated the exteriors of St James to harmonise with existing surrounds. Materials such as brickwork, timber, glass and embossed metal unite to create a visually stunning repetition of geometry that blends effortlessly with the leafy streetscape. Perforated metal screens provide each residential balcony with sun-dappled privacy.
These balconies seamlessly connect outdoor and indoor spaces. Bright and sunny living areas, with custom light fittings by Reduxr, showcase simple and timeless elegance. The team from Melbourne design practice, Mim Design, has focused on modern comforts, evident in a considered approach to materials in personal spaces and connected living areas.
