Setting the Scene

Located in the heart of Melbourne’s new Domain Precinct, The Eighth is steps away from the city’s most iconic spaces: the National Gallery of Victoria, the Shrine of Remembrance, and the new Anzac Station opening in 2025, which represents a new connectivity for Domain Precinct that places The Eighth one train stop away from the CBD.

Book-ended by the Royal Botanic Gardens and Albert Park Lake, The Eighth is strategically located to offer a community of convenience. From the famous Domain Precinct Market to Clarendon Street’s shopping scene, from gourmet restaurants to cosy cafes – the best of the area is all within arm’s reach.

The Inspiration:

The Eighth represents a major milestone in the evolution of apartment living. It embodies the concept of the whole building – not just an apartment – that becomes your home.

Taking inspiration from New York and London, this destination building centres experience and individuality in a way not yet achieved before in our city. All the spaces at The Eighth have been curated and offer opportunities to tailor the environment to resident’s particular styles and tastes. It’s designed to be a building that flows with the rhythms of residents’ days and offers an entirely new paradigm for living – one based on interconnectedness and a heightened sense of being.

The building is minimal in aesthetic; elegant and timeless. Its vibrancy comes from the life that is possible within it. This new way of living is possible because so too is a new way of being – one that balances play, creativity and spaces to enjoy.


The Outcome:

The Eighth is not just a home; it’s a lifestyle hub.

There is a limited collection of 35 private residences over twelve floors. With a maximum of four apartments per floor, ranging from 128-550 square metres, this is exclusive experience-centred living of the future. Residents come home to a domain of details that redefine luxury living: think private lift entries, over-scaled kitchens featuring wine and cocktail cabinets, separate utility zones, custom bedheads in master bedrooms, and bespoke walk-in robes and ensuites.

The building brims with spaces that can be used in ways that are intuitive, comfortable, and stimulating. A grand lobby signals the world of interconnecting amenities on offer, including boutique offices for rent, a rooftop pool and bar, an exclusive members-only wellbeing facility and day spa, and a ground floor Italian eatery. The barriers between work and play are removed, and self-restoration is nurtured.

The Eighth stands as a new beacon of integrated luxury living, blending opulent residential spaces with state-of-the-art amenities that cater to every facet of modern life.
