Crafted refinement – a sophisticated approach to urban living, with an underlying sense of home.
Set on an elevated site in one of Melbourne’s most distinguished suburbs, 21 Riversdale Road has an enduring identity and presence. Dark charcoal brickwork anchors the building form, while paying homage to the rich architectural fabric of Hawthorn. Smooth off-form concrete elements strike a contrasting, contemporary line. The horizontal, cantilevered spans almost appear to float in elevation. Recycled natural hardwood balustrades and soffits soften the façade and create a subtle connection to the tactile character of the surrounding homes. Floor to ceiling glazing with slimline matt black framing trace the tailored, contemporary line of the facade, while flooding the interior with natural light.
Each of the thirty homes offers a balance of elegance and sophistication, through the considered interior design. While functionality is paramount to contemporary living, each element of the design has been meticulously detailed to create a crafted aesthetic. Dark timber joinery is coupled with elegant white marble, neutral oak flooring and fresh white 2pac lacquered joinery. Exquisite timber pendant lighting by Alex Earl, embrace and celebrate local craftsmanship, while adding a personalised touch and warmth to the heart of the home – the kitchen. Landscaping provides a lush layer of privacy and vibrant outlook to private terraces and courtyards. A communal garden offers residents a quiet sanctuary to retreat or engage with fellow residents.
