Chic pads showcased
AS construction on Kyko Group’s $150 million Mon Komo development at Redcliffe nears completion, the first furnished display apartments have opened on site.
The luxury two-bedroom plus study apartments have been unveiled in the residential tower and the Oaks Apartments short-stay tower.
Mon Komo was designed by awardwinning architects Altis Architecture, led by principal director Andrew O’Connell.
Mr O’Connell said the design concept integrated permanent living into a resort-style atmosphere that sits in perfect harmony with the environment it shares.
‘‘When creating Mon Komo we wanted to stay well connected with nature and outdoor space. The whole design philosophy around the apartments is centred around and inspired by natural materials connecting the inside and outside spaces," Mr O’Connell said.
‘‘Floor-to-ceiling glass panels and balustrade balconies double as a second living space and allow uninterrupted views across Moreton Bay, creating the impression of endless light and space.’’
Mr O’Connell said Mon Komo’s decor was inspired by luxury Caribbean resorts, using a sophisticated palette of natural elements including high quality timbers, veneers and stone.
‘‘The apartments feature 2.6-metre high ceilings, natural timber finishes, stone splashbacks, wood panelling in the doorways, quartz benchtops and marble features, the extensive use of glazing and a warm palette of materials, designed to reflect contempor- ary living with a luxury resort feel,’’ he said.
‘‘With the development only 12 levels up, residents can still feel in touch with the water. Mon Komo really is a dream place."
Mon Komo apartments are available in one, two and three-bedroom configurations and are priced between $377,000 and $1.65 million.
Senior property stylist Adam James of Coco Republic Brisbane was in- volved in the interior styling of the display apartment in the residential tower and said Mon Komo would set a new standard of living in Redcliffe.
‘‘Mon Komo exudes elegance. We wanted to emulate this through implementing a natural theme punctuated by colour in the artwork and soft furnishings,’’ he said.
‘‘Natural and rustic elements are fused together with eclectic pieces like natural polished timbers, polished steel and nickel lamps to create an understated seaside ambience.’’
The display apartment is equipped with an internal fit out of wardrobes and cupboards and all furnishings provide a balance of practicality and style.
‘‘The overall feel of the display apartment is reminiscent of a chic, Hamptons-style abode in keeping with the relaxed, yet sophisticated, seaside lifestyle offered by Mon Komo,’’ he said.
