The Astor is a multi-unit development located on the corner of Fitzroy Street and Dominion Circuit in Forrest. The design of the Astor is classically inspired and complements the surrounding traditional architecture of the area. The use of contemporary elements and clever landscaping allow the Astor to also have a modern appearance, whilst maintaining a Classical aesthetic.
The Astor features one and two bedroom apartments. The floor plans of each have been carefully designed to maximise space and to utilise interior space efficiently. The result is living spaces that are functional and beautiful. The lower ground apartments open out on to tranquil, landscaped gardens whilst upper floors apartments benefit from large balconies that allow residents to entertain outside.
The colour palette has been carefully selected to allow the Astor to complement the existing colour palette found in Forrest, yet also stand out as a distinct landmark in the suburb. The use of beige rendered elements on the façade gives the structure a contemporary feel. It is the clever use of corbelled detailing on rendered sections in conjunction with the arched feature windows add interest and classicism to the appearance of the building.
