Luigi Rosselli creates an ode to the beauty of Double Bay


Developer Top Spring Australia has opened Ode, Double Bay, with timeless architecture by Luigi Rosselli, at an exclusive address in Sydney East.

Located at 19-27 Cross Street, the corner site is directly connected to a future retail and dining public plaza. A number of beaches, parks and public squares are also in close proximity, offering an escape from the typically hustle and bustle of Sydney.

“We have focused on delivering an unrivaled destination worthy of the epicenter of the East,” said Sydney Ma, Managing Director of Top Spring.

“We designed Ode, Double Bay as a seamless integration between architecture, interiors and art, with a commitment to a masterful expression of creativity, design and environmental principles.”

The building responds to its corner location with a curved façade that is a nod to the bays and curves of Sydney Harbour.

“My design reflects the modernist architectural styles of Oscar Niemeyer, Gio Ponti and Le Corbusier – a positive, optimistic response to the global resurgence of the 1950s,” explains Rosselli.

“I feel like this is the perfect post-pandemic opportunity to revive their cheerful approach and boldly embrace innovation and asymmetry in the fusion of organic shapes, geometric shapes and sinuous lines.”

Consisting of 15 three and four bedroom apartments and penthouses over five levels ensuring the craftsmanship and attention to detail is of the highest standard. The apartments range in size from 219 to 311 m², with the apartments on the fourth and fifth floors offering views over the harbour. A ground floor retail district offers food and beverage suppliers the opportunity to connect with the existing built environment along Transvaal Avenue.

The interior design was overseen by Alwill Interiors, with handcrafted finishes of brass, wood and stone. The fluid shapes of the lobby ensure movement through public and private spaces is seamless, with colors and sensual lines evoking a sense of calm.

“We used a classic neutral color palette throughout the building, punctuated with jewel-box moments in lush green plants, stunning artwork, and onyx and brass features to show you’ve arrived at an extraordinary place,” says Romaine Alwill, Alwill Interiors .

“Our interior vision fits seamlessly with Luigi Rosselli’s architectural vision and features classic design materials that have stood the test of time. The sense of space is unprecedented, with sun-drenched interiors maximized to create emotional resonance and luminosity in each space.”

Stone vanities and countertops take center stage in the kitchens and bathrooms, with walk-in pantries and warm brass in the kitchen. The stone in the bathroom is enhanced by travertine walls and floors, with occupants able to choose from a range of colors and textures for the carpentry, stone and floors in their spaces.

The penthouses each have a BBQ area, spa, entertaining areas and harbor views. Kitchens, bathrooms, and powder rooms are made of stone, while bedrooms have leather-covered closet doors and marble vanities.

Ode, Double Bay will begin construction in Q1 2023 with a target completion date of Q1 2025.
