Sky's the limit.

As our cities grow and more people choose to dwell in bustling urban environments our skylines reflect the booming building business which over the years has endowed our cities with progressive newness. Steve Zappia, MD and Founder Partner of Award winning Architect and Design firm Marchese + Partners says: "The move toward urban consolidation has spurned an amazing improvement in the quality of Australian residential apartment design. The buoyant and competitive Australian property market in recent years has seen local architects export their design talent. Good design should always be focused on commercial sensibilities, as well as innovative architecture and design which are fundamental the success and sustainability of any project." Their current $20 million development is the 227 room Chifley Hotel located in Potts Point--set to create an experience and journey for guests from the moment they enter the hotel. The lower level is designed as a seductive and moody transition space in a cool and restrained palette with flashes of vibrant colour and textural variety. The upper level is flooded with light and openness. Enquiries contact: www.marchesepartners.com.au
