Made up of two distinct apartment buildings – The Podium and The Cloud – Upper House is the master work of award-winning Jackson Clements Burrows Architects. The Podium structure provides elevated serenity from the dynamic Melbourne arterial of Swanston Street, while The Cloud perches above the low-lying Carlton skyline, offering intimate views of Australia’s cultural capital, Melbourne.
Our apartment is a multi-residential complex located within Melbourne, Australia, on the south east corner of Swanston Street and Queensberry Street in Carlton. The apartment complex is made up of two distinct apartment buildings, The Podium and The Cloud. With a total of 17 storeys, the Cloud apartments on floors 12–16 sit above the Podium apartments which make up the first ten floors, giving the impression of levitation. In the middle of these two structures on the 11th floor is the Observatory, a 500-square metre communal area that comprises a lounge, gym, entertainment area and external outdoor spaces with surrounding views of the city.
Guests will have access to a well-appointed bedroom with closets to store clothing and belongings. The apartment also has:
1. Bathroom - amenities including body wash and shampoo will be fully provided for all guests
