Abode, St Leonards

1 / 5

In the heart of St Leonards, Sydney stands Abode, a contemporary residential building which responds dynamically to its distinguished corner site and context.

Built form and spatial design blend seamlessly in this unique and iconic building, which makes a statement with a bold and prominent curved facade. Its glazed louvred screen wraps around the tower podium, providing the internal structure with an acoustic, tinted veil. A subtle and considered colour palette throughout the structure punctuates the building’s pure and elegant design.

The building comprises 190 apartments, which are a study in spatial efficiency and design, with tactile materials, textures and light delivering flexible and contemporary living solutions. Many of Abode’s apartments boast private balconies that extend towards district and city skyline views, providing a dramatic theatrical backdrop to the interior domain.
