Contemporary architecture in a classic location, Anchor & Cecil introduces a new aesthetic to Anchor Place with two distinct forms: a robust podium and a refined tower rising above. With its striking blend of textured materials, elegant glass and bronze accents, the façade has been designed to become an integral addition to the fabric of Prahran.
“The façade has a complexity designed to engage, and to respond to the rich character of the local area.” KARL FENDER FENDER KATSALIDIS
The experience begins at the active ground level, with retail spaces and an iconic lobby welcoming residents. Above are the Anchor Residences, each styled with an urban edge, and an expansive rooftop pool deck where residents can relax and unwind. Rising further into the sky are the Cecil Residences, crafted with sophisticated finishes and designed to maximise views. With its offering of two distinctive residential styles in the podium and the tower, Anchor & Cecil reflects the dual identities of Prahran. Throughout both sets of interiors, this duality continues in the considered blend of natural textures and raw materials: concrete, stone, timber, metal and glass. Here, sculpted forms meet clean lines, and expansive spaces hold beautifully crafted details. Beyond their aesthetic beauty, the residences have been intelligently designed to enable an effortless lifestyle with an emphasis on concealed storage, natural light and robust finishes.
