Why an integrated home office is now the must-have of apartment living
28 Lyall is set to be a landmark development in cosmopolitan South Perth, led by Sirona Capital in partnership with CEL Development.

Almost half of the Australian working population has been working from home to some degree since the start of the coronavirus pandemic according to the ABS. This has seen a big shift not only in the way we work, but also in how we live.

More people are now looking ahead to life after the pandemic, and how they might maintain the flexibility that they’ve enjoyed working from home. Quality work spaces within the home have become a defining factor in the emerging ‘COVID-normal’ property market.

Sirona Capital with its partner CEL Development has moved ahead of the market with 28 Lyall, which incorporates innovative two-storey residences with dedicated workspaces into its apartment offering.

Designed by world-renowned architectural practice Bates Smart, 28 Lyall is set to be a landmark development in cosmopolitan South Perth. Upon completion 28 Lyall will stand 123 metres above ground level. As one of the city’s tallest residential buildings, it offers uninterrupted views of the Swan River, Perth’s CBD, Kings Park and Fremantle.

The tower includes spacious two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses with dedicated workspaces. These unique apartment configurations feature an internal stair to an entirely self-contained office.

28 Lyall’s apartments with dedicated workspaces are a direct response to the market’s need for comfortable, private workspaces at home.

Sirona Capital's Managing Director Matthew McNeilly said the key difference now is in what professionals want from their work space. Far beyond the traditional home office, 28 Lyall’s integrated work spaces are designed for an optimal work-life balance. 

“This apartment design is a direct response to the market’s need for comfortable, dedicated workspaces at home,” said Mr McNeilly.

“They offer flexibility for residents to have a space to work and meet clients – while providing the separation from home required to maintain a certain level of productivity.”

Each workspace is complete with its own kitchenette and full-size bathroom. Uniquely, it also features a private office entry.

“This was a big part of the design innovation,” said Mr McNeilly.

“There’s much more variety in the sorts of professionals working from home now – we’ve considered everyone from freelancers to health consultants. The private access allows people to welcome clients, patients, colleagues or visitors directly into their office, without having to traverse the primary living space.”

As one of Perth’s tallest residential buildings, 28 Lyall offers residents panoramic views of the Swan River and CBD.

First impressions count.

28 Lyall’s apartments and integrated home offices are several steps above anything that Perth has seen before.

Along with breathtaking views, the luxury aesthetic of the apartment design extends into the work space, with engineered timber floors, wood grain panelling, high quality finishes and fixtures and Miele appliances throughout. A quiet, private professional space is also assured, with careful acoustic treatments between rooms and levels. Double glaze windows and doors also open to spacious, north-facing balconies recessed for wind protection.

The building’s incredible amenity – a big drawcard for residents – also adds to its appeal as a base for work. The Mends Street jetty offers an easy connection to the CBD and is just a five-minute walk from 28 Lyall. A second car bay is also standard specification with each of these premium residences, for easy visitor parking.

There are a limited number of these uniquely configured apartments available. With a 75% stamp duty rebate of up to $50,000 available, the current market conditions are favourable for those looking to downsize, upgrade or invest in a premium apartment.

28 Lyall is just a five-minute walk from Mends Street jetty, offering an easy commute to the CBD.

28 Lyall’s Display Suite is open on the project site at 28 Lyall Street, South Perth on Wednesday 2-6pm, Saturday and Sunday 12-2.30pm, and by private appointment on request. The 20 metre on-site viewing platform offers buyers a taste of the panoramic views which await at 28 Lyall.
