Architecturally expressed columns on the facade, highlighted in honed travertine and bronze metal, form a screen that is a defining element of the building design, and which conveys a sense of timelessness and strong identity that is at once beautiful, recognisable and visible from both inside and outside the building.
The facade, with its rhythm of travertine and bronze fins and frames, is contemporary yet timeless, and not out of place amongst the heritage context of Ivanhoe; sharing common themes of layered depth to facades, quality of materiality and sense of craftsmanship with its neighbours, all nestled within a landscaped setting.
Internally, views out are framed by the bronze and travertine facade elements, which provide a sense of privacy within and also filter light into the residences. The integrated facade planting adds a soft green foreground to views beyond.
Kitchens as culinary entertainment hubs, designed in collaboration with leading Australian chef Adam D’Sylva and Gaggenau, with butler’s pantry and hide-away appliance cupboards and natural stone.
There is also integrated study nooks and a variety of smart storage for both concealing and curated display of books, art and objects of personal and sentimental value.
Livability and lifestyle, with a sense of luxury, was at the forefront of the approach to interior environments encouraging personalisation. This is seen in the many thoughtful design signatures, such as minimalist joinery which blend seamlessly into walls, yet open to reveal rich, timber-lined interior that creates a cocooning environment for living.
