Distinctively different.

On Lake Street, next to Stuart Street Reserve, you’ll find a distinctively different form of apartment living. Motus has developed an exceptional new building with an architectural style and concept that is rarely seen in Perth. Close to all the benefits of the city and Northbridge, but nestled on a quiet residential street, Lake + Stuart strikes a unique balance between connectivity and tranquillity.

This distinctive building with only 22 apartments, over four floors, is definitely not for everyone. Exclusive in size and specific in aesthetic, it naturally attracts those with an appreciation for design and cultural vibrancy.

An architectural response to the neighbourhood

Lake + Stuart adheres to Motus’ guiding principle that architecture should improve the way we inhabit our environment with a site-specific design that respects and responds to the existing neighbourhood.

The architects have taken the signature building materials of Northbridge – the face brickwork, off-form concrete, metal sheeting and exposed structural steel – and incorporated the latest technology and sustainable design initiatives. This is a building that is both of its time and of its area.

with inspiring form.


Design Principles

The design and construction of Lake + Stuart is shaped by four key considerations: liveable spaces, sustainability, practical technology and community. By balancing these diverse considerations, we are able to create a building that not only enriches the lives of its residents, but enhances the broader community too.

The Apartments

The lower levels offer 1 and 2-bedroom apartments, while the Terrace and Penthouse Levels has 3 bedroom penthouses. A central atrium, and terrace planting throughout, link all four floors and create a secret green oasis for residents.
