Completed 2010

elm’s location, beside the renowned St Kilda Road boulevard, on a site that was home to a Melbourne television icon, epitomises what both visitors and Melburnians love about the city: beautiful gardens and great cafés, restaurants and fashion boutiques on their doorstep.

This visionary development brought together some of Australia’s greatest creative talents and set new benchmarks for design, storytelling and city living; with elm’s social spaces designed as an extension of private living spaces and connection between residents supported by a custom online community portal.

Dale Frank describes his painting in elm’s foyer as exemplifying engagement with nature and its phenomena through its palette of the sea, sun and sky.
