With equal focus on architecture, interiors and landscaping, Plant Street has been considered from a variety of perspectives to arrive at a truly cohesive design. Intended to unite internal and external spaces, the design centres on striking, textural and classically robust architecture, paired with warm, inviting and functional interiors, and softened by beautiful landscaping integrated throughout.
An exercise in balance and restraint, Plant Street is defined by solid, textural forms tempered by layers of greenery. Designed in collaboration with local architecture practice RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN, the building is underscored by a mix of bush hammered concrete panels and smooth slab edges that creates moments of depth and difference, while horizontal planes punctuate the façade at various heights.
Plant life envelops the building and internal open-air atrium to gently filter the streetscape without creating disconnection from the neighbourhood. This confluence of architectural detailing and thoughtful landscaping allows for generous views and apertures towards the surrounding gardens and nearby suburbs.
Designed by local studio Georgina Jeffries, these nurturing and light-filled spaces exemplify the curatorial approach the studio is known for. Elegant, tactile and highly functional, the material palette of honey timber joinery, brown ash brick, terrazzo and natural stone emanates warmth and welcome throughout.
Custom-made lighting, designed by Brunswick East-based Volker Haug Studio, complements the material palette. Hand-picked by Georgina Jeffries, these pieces reflect the studio’s refined approach to design, which celebrates local craftspeople and prioritises lasting comfort.
Intended to soften the built form and unite the architecture, interiors and outdoor areas, the landscaping features a dynamic mix of deciduous plants and trees that will shift across the seasons. These tactile and emotive outdoor areas are crafted by Acre, an award-winning multidisciplinary practice based in Collingwood.
This relationship between the building and plant life is present at every level of the design. At ground floor, a dense yet soft layer of trees, plants and grasses extends naturally from the streetscape into the building’s open-air atrium. Beyond softening the architecture and complementing the neighbourhood’s surrounding flora, the landscaping evokes a sense of calm as residents enter and exit the building. Continuing this sentiment throughout the homes, ground floor apartments have generously landscaped gardens and upper-level dwellings have planters and creepers on their terraces.
Situated 10 kilometres south-east of the CBD, Malvern is known for its leafy streets, sprawling parklands and heritage architecture. Close to Malvern Road, Glenferrie Road and High Street, the building is connected to an excellent range of retail spaces, dining venues and community facilities, as well as public and private schools. While much of the area’s offerings are within walking distance of home, the area is well serviced by public transport, including a tram stop adjacent to the building.
In collaboration with emerging development practice Penfold and Capital Partner MaxCap Group, we’ve assembled a team of exceptional talent who share our values and complement our approach to design. This project will be designed in partnership with award winning architects RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN, small yet dextrous interior design practice Georgina Jeffries and esteemed landscape architects Acre.
Additional contributions include lighting by local designer Volker Haug Studio, artwork by Melbourne gallery Otomys, and appliances by Swiss innovators V-ZUG.
