In the Press: To Downsize Is Not To Downgrade
Australian-owned developer, Central Element, proves that downsizing need not mean a compromise on quality finishes, fixtures and fittings with its latest boutique development, Mera by PBD Architects.06/01/2020
Our newly completed Mera development recently featured on Habitus Living with a spotlight on the development’s enviable location, superior fixtures and fittings.
Sydney’s Lower North Shore is a dream location for many, and the enviable suburb of Cammeray is located on the edge, less than 5km and only minutes away from the CBD. Surrounded by beautiful lush green spaces such as St Leonards Park, Tunks Park and the Flat Rock Gully walking track, the suburb offers a sense of community along with a tranquil village feel. It is here, in Cammeray, that Central Element’s latest boutique development, Mera by PBD Architects, has made its place. The location offers a peaceful lifestyle without the frantic pace of surrounding locales, and Central Element wanted the opportunity to offer residents an urban oasis – a place to live, to retreat and to entertain.
To bring the vision of Mera to life, Central Element’s brief to PBD Architects was centred around contemporary elegance. Mera’s façade is a streamlined architectural form, with curvilinear lines that draw the eye. The louvres, copper detailing and the wide balconies span four floors, with the design capturing the organic beauty of the surrounding landscape and inspiring a sophisticated lifestyle in a home that becomes a personal sanctuary. Mera is a boutique development of only 14 apartments, with residences offering 1, 2, or 3 bedroom layouts.
Nathan Chivas, Development Director of Central Element says, “From the exterior, luxury and architectural excellence are displayed on a grand scale. When you step inside, the interiors reveal this level of exceptional craftsmanship in every small detail.” He goes on to explain, “The brief for the interiors was understated elegance, providing our purchasers a high-quality, contemporary apartment with superior finishes, so they could then style it their own way. We allowed for a wide range of purchaser customisation, allowing residents to customise finishes, add fixtures and even amalgamate apartments to offer our purchasers their ideal layout”.
