Not often do you witness three masters of their industries come together to craft a series of residential homes. Born of a collaboration of the highest order, Balwyn Park offers the rare and exclusive opportunity to wake each morning in a home thoughtfully curated by a team of revered architects and interior designers and watch as the sunlight dances across the idyllic landscape, designed by Australia’s most celebrated landscape designer.
On arrival, residents are greeted with the utmost sophistication. Luxurious, reflective surfaces at the private entrance serve as blissful reminders of what lies within the home, paired with stylishly appointed front doors. Whilst establishing a hotel-esque atmosphere, the lobby area encourages a communal spirit among residents, adding to Balwyn Park’s already inviting feel whilst providing opportunities for interaction.
Elegantly playing on the subtleties that emerge when perfectly curated design is met with the rambling beauty of nature, each home has been consciously designed so that frames of the landscape are drawn internally. A perfect canvas of soft, earthen tones evokes a sense of effortlessness that invite moments of contemplation and unkempt opportunities for repose.
Similar contemplation has been made with the generous storage opportunities and the intuitive flow of the space. Cognisant of how modern lives unfold within these spaces and the simple joy that comes from having everything at hand when preparing a meal, the consideration of such things as oven location and pantry allocation, will mean mealtimes are always met with anticipation.
Though irrefutably beautiful, interiors have been scrupulously considered for their liveability and practicality; a vein of authenticity permeates throughout these homes. Expanses of imposing marble bench-spaces, for instance, while aesthetically stunning, have been chosen for their endurance and ease of maintenance.
As our days become busier and our time becomes an even more precious commodity, opportunities for true decompression are few and far between. Wanting to purposefully carve out space within these homes that demands for this type of allowance – of unabated self-care – master bedrooms and their adjoining amenities feel more like you’re escaping to a boutique hotel than merely heading to bed for the night.
Spacious, light-filled and brimming with beautifully crafted elements, here bathrooms are so much more than their mere function. Enjoying the same suite of textural and tonal beauty that distinguishes the rest of the home, the feeling of luxe is owed to deep tubs, generous storage and bench space, and the layers of elegant materials forming the foundations of the space.
