Artist Impression, Kitchen/Living
Taking their cue from Ola’s architectural envelope, The Rochester is imbued with an industrial aesthetic, bold and textured, with fresh open air circulation. Flexible open concept plans maximise living space, ease flow of movement and provide a sense of connection to the outdoors.
Large windows provide great views and plenty of light to the interiors and every residence opens onto light-filled terraces. Exposed concrete slab ceilings in the living areas allow greater height and a sense of the building structure. Lower plasterboard ceilings in the bedrooms and bathrooms invite you into more intimate spaces. Chevron parquetry timber floors throughout kitchen and living areas combine with carefully considered details, finished to perfection.
Relax in exquisite interiors, where thorough, sustainable sourcing of natural, hard-wearing materials delivers outstanding quality that will stand the test of time.

All materials are thoroughly considered and ethically sourced, all no or low volatile organic compounds to protect indoor air quality. Timber is FSC certified, and Australian where possible. Brass tapware has been sourced locally and chosen to age well over time.
Building systems contribute significantly to the excellent NatHERS energy rating, with photovoltaic panels on the roof and hydronic heating to all homes providing sumptuous winter warmth and direct hot water. Air conditioning is available as an option but the building is designed to be thermally comfortable year round. LED lighting and induction cooktops minimise dependency on fossil fuels.
Designed as an attractive, visible feature in the lobby, extensive bike parking (easily accessed at ground level) encourages reduced car use. Car lifts minimise basement space required for circulation and maximise space for parking and storage. Car spaces come embedded with technology to allow for electric charging stations, offering flexibility for the future.
