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.
