Full Exterior Repaint/Internal Stairwells of The Mandalay Apartment Building.

Mandalay is an iconic Art Deco apartment building boasting an elevated beachfront location in Melbourne’s celebrated St Kilda. Perched on the Upper Esplanade directly across from the vibrant foreshore, the complex offers uninterrupted views across Port Phillip Bay.

Built in 1935, Mandalay represents an era when middleclass Melbournians embraced apartment living. The building’s architecture, decorative geometric patterns and bold colours are typical of the period’s dominant design style, Art Deco. However, by the 1990s, the complex had become neglected and was slated for demolition. Thankfully, community action saved Mandalay, which is now heritage listed.

In 2022, Programmed Property Services was engaged to provide a complete refurbishment of this Melbourne landmark. They engaged Dulux as the project’s leading paint partner due to our extensive portfolio of brands and products and our team’s expertise and respected technical advice.
