Riviera presents true sophistication with an exclusive collection of luxury apartments, each architecturally designed and immaculately appointed. Standing proudly at the heart of a blue-chip AAA location, this boutique development spans only six ultra-luxe, oversized residences with the added flexibility to customise the design. 

An inner-city oasis


The development is nestled within South Yarra’s most tightly-held pocket, mere moments from the picturesque Yarra River. The enviable location makes Riviera an inner-city oasis that offers the most vibrant way of life. 

There’s plenty of natural splendour at your doorstep with the Botanical Gardens, Fawkner Park and the Yarra River nearby. Discerning epicureans will be delighted to find some of Australia’s most critically acclaimed restaurants and cafes just a short stroll away, while the world-famous Chapel Street is home to some of the biggest names in fashion and design. Melbourne city’s cultural heart is also just minutes away from Riviera.

From the streetscape, Riviera’s facade reflects the unique fabric of its location. The development stands proudly with its striking and refined architecture; the sculptural form creating a remarkable arrival experience. Charcoal metal cladding and raw concrete are softened with greenery that mingles with the structure. John Patrick’s industry acclaim is demonstrated through the elegance of the landscape where layers of textural foliage are used to engineer privacy and inject life. The full-height windows invite the greenery inside, creating a verdant backdrop to the stunning interiors.

Inside, the living spaces are an extension of the facade - drawing harmonious parallels in form and materiality. The importance of interior designs in enhancing lifestyles has never been more important, and Riviera addresses this by bringing in the visionary Selwyn Blackstone.

The open-plan living spaces, while subtly divided, flow into one another - encouraging you to stretch out in your new home. All residences are appointed with a suite of highly sophisticated finishes and layers of tactile materials that create an extraordinary living experience. Innovative appliances combine with bespoke joinery; natural stone benchtops anchor the kitchen, while Gaggenau and Miele integrated appliances add practicality, functionality and longevity. 

Selwyn Blackstone’s human-centric design principles translate into a meticulous material palette, thoughtful orientation, full-height windows and generous leafy terraces that blur the lines between the inside and out. The generous use of glazing along the northern aspects invites an abundance of natural light into the living spaces, adding to the already vast sense of space whilst reducing energy consumption.

Spacious three-bedroom apartments and penthouses are available at Riviera. The visionary collaboration between Selwyn Blackstone and John Patrick, together with the enviable location is a rare find in today’s market.
