Mesmerising by day, illuminating by night, a city skyline view is often high on the priority list for those looking to buy a prestige Melbourne property. What makes a CBD view so attractive? Architects and designers say there are many reasons.
Firstly, when looking from afar, the natural order of the grouped skyscrapers creates an aesthetically pleasing composition, creating a sense of wonder and awe for human potential. Secondly, it ‘positions’ or ‘grounds’ the viewer, so that they understand exactly where they are in the world. The viewer may be able to pick out individual buildings or landmarks where they’ve worked or spent time, providing a real visual and emotional connection. Thirdly, like beautiful ‘natural’ views, the cityscape is always changing. Viewers can observe construction taking place, and different weather elements change the clarity, colours, and sharpness of the view.
