Aster - boutique luxury at its finest
Architecturally designed by internationally renowned firm Tony Owen Partners with interiors by award-winning SJB, Aster is a striking boutique building adding a prestigious new dimension to the Crows Nest residential landscape.
Built around a beautiful communal courtyard garden, this rare development's 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments showcase an exceptional calibre of finishes and meticulous attention to detail. Set amidst West Street's leafy surrounds and reflecting the vibrancy of the Crows Nest area itself, these luxuriously appointed apartments and double-storey townhomes all come with security parking and storage, lift access and superb alfresco entertaining areas.
Exceptional architectural pedigree!
Tony Owen and his team sought a design which was unique and distinctive yet with a timeless elegance. They based Aster on the classical proportions of the traditional Sydney terrace, fitting comfortably within the low scale of the street. Using a palette of materials which is at once luxurious and robust, it is primarily built from polished concrete with the upper level clad in corten steel.
These warm materials give a soft, rich feel to the building. The firm also developed a customised exterior screen design with an elegant diagonal patterning, creating a distinctive, stylish motif which sets it apart from other buildings as a memorable address. These screens provide privacy and sun protection for bedrooms and bathrooms while the external walkways employ a fixed screen which creates an interesting quality of light to the circulation spaces.
Aster interiors showcase a freshness which reflects contemporary, uncomplicated living. They are composed of natural finishes and elegant detailing. Materials are textured with a lovely tactile quality, including joinery designed with a sense of craftsmanship. A choice of two interior colour schemes allows residents to put their own personal style into the space.
Sophisticated gourmet kitchens are finished with either elegant Carrara marble or honed black stone benchtops, complemented by marble or mirrored splashbacks and oak veneer cabinetry. Bathrooms are appointed in floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall honed terrazzo for a classic appeal while floors are graced with luxurious natural stone. The interiors have been designed to make life easy and stylish, including ample storage, elegant lighting and handy open shelving in the kitchens and bathrooms.
