Refined and contemporary design hinged on high-end materials and rich tactility is the essence of Luar, a new boutique collection of St Kilda residences.

Luar is a five-storey building offering one, two and three bedroom apartments positioned to benefit greatly from the prestige and connectivity of St Kilda Road. The smaller apartments with one bedroom and a study are 57 sqm while the largest three bedroom apartments with two bathrooms are 109 sqm.


With architecture and interior design by ADDARC, a statement about Luar’s overall quality and positioning on the Melbourne property market is already made. This established sense of reassurance is undoubtedly one of the reasons Luar has already garnered a vast amount of interest from local buyers.

ADDARC’s modernist façade features a blend of metallic finishes and warm natural timbers that complements the surrounding streetscape intuitively. Held within this impressive exterior lies a serene living experience with seamless outdoor connection.


To ensure you feel at home in your apartment, its design should be a reflection of your taste and style, which varies from person to person. To create the opportunity for buyers to feel this personal connection at Luar, apartments come in a choice of two interior styles – neutral and bold. Whether you choose the lighter or darker scheme, the tonal harmony will be a base that’s in tune with your taste from the outset.

The textural materiality of the interiors is defined long before you begin to decorate. Timber floorboards lay the foundations for a comfortable sort of luxury, the amalgamation of colours and tactile depth coming to life as natural light streams through full-height windows.


In the kitchen, the timber theme continues, further infusing a Scandinavian calm throughout the home and bolstering the apartment’s material richness. Stone benchtops offer a sense of solidity that strengthens the design while maintaining the natural palette. The final touch, and an example of ADDARC’s modernist approach to classic design, is in the splashback. The Japanese-inspired feature tiling blends with the sleek culinary aesthetic while achieving an important point of difference. 

The signature Japanese style reappears in the bathroom. The geometrically captivating tiling is positioned here to juxtapose with the honed terrazzo floor and wall tiles and soft timber cabinetry, resulting in a distinctly different bathroom.


The texture of the bedroom comes alive underfoot as you walk across the pure wool carpet. Relax into the luxury of a personal retreat that’s coloured with neutral tones and bathed in natural light. Run your fingers through your clothes, hung perfectly in the customised, full-height wardrobe.

The St Kilda lifestyle revolves around the outdoors, so being positioned in the beachside suburb, Luar apartments have been designed to offer an elegant outdoor extension. Step outside onto the balcony and sink into an inviting armchair as you admire the leafy surrounds and feel the breeze on your skin.


Luar is perfectly positioned to make the most of St Kilda and Balaclava’s vibrant scene. Stroll down past Luna Park and you’ll have the sand between your toes in under 20 minutes. After a day at the beach, enjoy a drink by the seaside at Pontoon. For an evening of delicious international food, try Las Tapas for a genuine Spanish experience, or Uncle for a taste of Vietnam. If you’re feeling experimental, discover your new favourite beer at The Local Taphouse, just a 6-minute walk from home.

Living just 100m from St Kilda Road, access to trams 3 and 67 taking you straight to the CBD in just 20 minutes will be invaluable.

One bedroom apartments at Luar start from $517,500.
