Armada: 115 Nott St, Port Melbourne

5 September 2012
The newly completed Armada apartments in Nott St featured in the Age today and includes some gorgeous photographs of the cedar entry foyer.
Architect Craig Yelland of Plus Architecture described the look of the building as 'industrial seaside aesthetic rather than the cruise ship model.' Read more of the article here.
The cedar entry foyer would make returning home a pleasure - as is walking past the building. See more of Armada on Buxton's website.
In Port Melbourne, Buxton has also constructed Aqueous, the Anchorage Apartments, and the Zinc apartments.

Buxton's Insite newsletter* describes the development at 115 Nott St: 
'... Armada Apartments, a six-storey residential complex comprising 41 one and two-bedroom apartments and basement car parking at 115 Nott Street. Designed by Plus Architecture, the building's exterior is influenced by its seaside location and blends characteristics of modern day and historic shipping ports. The lower level reflects the sweeping lines of today's maritime architecture as well as visual interpretations of the everyday working machinery seen in a port environment. In contrast, the upper level design is based on an abstract grouping of sails while the selection of building materials complements the maritime theme.'
