Designing for Wellness

- 01/12/2018

As our lives have become busier and we’re more contactable than ever, it has become apparent how important nurturing our health and wellbeing is.

And to help us do this, OSK Property’s project Melbourne Square will include a wellness campus that enables residents to be their happiest and healthiest.

Split across two functions - health and wellbeing spaces, and spaces for entertaining and social connection - the wellness campus spans the entire stage one podium, with extra spaces for premium apartment owners further up in the building.

 

“The future of apartment living are buildings that support people’s need to take care of themselves,” explains Carr Design’s Director of Architecture Chris McCue, who is part of the team behind the building’s interiors.

Melbourne Square’s wellness zones echo the two sides of wellness - physical well-being and emotional well-being, which is greatly influenced by regular social connection.

The physical side of things is catered for with a range of fitness facilities including gym, 25 metre lap pool, spa, steam room, outdoor training area and much more, located across the podium.

For the social side of living, there are ample areas to connect with others including underneath one of the stunning cabana style pods that line the pool, in a music performance room, a number of private dining rooms, theatre, demonstrator kitchen and games room.

On level 54, there is further amenity split into two areas - one for the entire building to share as well as an exclusive area of private amenity for prestige apartment and penthouse purchasers. Here, prestige buyers have their own private dining areas, an outdoor lap pool, sauna and premium gym - a selection fit for royalty.

To top it off, the significant amenity of Melbourne Square will be complemented by a large public park spanning 3,700 square metres, providing apartment owners with a spacious green heart.

The expansive public realm will provide linkage to existing public wellness zones including the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Melbourne Arts precinct.

With its significant green space and ample urban amenity, Melbourne Square is set to become a dynamic new hub for wellness.
