Prahran in motion.

Ukiyo has captured the energy of surrounding Prahran with its suspension of poised forms and flowing pleats connecting it intrinsically with the streetscape.

Occupying the corner of Porter Street, Percy Street and High Street, Ukiyo is immersed in natural light on all three facades. This unique combination of outlooks has been captured with expansive terraces on all levels offering views from the city to the bay.

The building comprises of 12 curated residences, spreading over half or full floors , with the top three levels offering a penthouse each.

Drawn from the Japanese Ukiyo-e art movement Ukiyo creates floating worlds deeply connected to the rhythms and lifestyles of the neighbourhood.

Each apartment is unique and can be envisioned as its own floating world. The building presents as a sculpture within its Prahran surroundings, with each of the residential levels floating above.

The design aims to emphasise the relationships between movement, light and shade. The bold contrasts between materiality and texture, held together by a strong defining line, reference the Ukiyo-e art style and create a harmony between the architecture and interiors, creating a truly liveable space.

With elegant interiors and a mixture of elite fixtures and finishes such as Wolf appliances in the kitchen, each residence embodies the message of Ukiyo-e — where the ordinary is transformed into the extraordinary.
