Mirvac has unveiled a new luxury residential development for Perth’s new Claremont on the Park precinct, a 9.4 hectare site located on the northern side of the Claremont railway station.

Comprising 142 apartments across six storeys, The Grandstand borders and follows the curve of the historic Claremont Oval, an Australian rules stadium. Its striking design is inspired by and celebrates the history of the site, responding both to the Oval as well as the surrounding community.

The exterior of the building incorporates organic design elements into its construction by integrating fixed timber panelling, stone cladding and painted masonry.

A key feature, according to Mirvac, is the moveable balcony screens that draw on the characteristic lines of the paperbark tree, once used for shelter by the Wadjuk people. These decorated screens and sculptural construction elements combine to create a large-scale ‘urban artwork’ that is active, dynamic and engaging as it continually changes in appearance with light and movement.

Mirvac’s Design Director, Michael Wiener, says the overall design goal was to create an environment rich in visual features and living activities, a place that linked the community and inspired interaction.

Located close to Claremont’s shopping district, and a train link to both the Perth CBD and beaches, The Grandstand is designed to achieve an average 7 star NatHERS rating, exceeding the required compliance measures.
