Elegantly playing on the subtleties that emerge when a perfectly curated design is met with the rambling beauty of nature, each apartment has been consciously designed so that frames of the landscape are drawn internally.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land upon which Cherry Road stands. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

Through its dignified form, the façade achieves a distinctive presence – one of modern grandeur and artistry. Emulating the luxuriance of the park opposite, greenery is also central to Balwyn Park’s exterior, where meandering vines and spilling tendrils paint every angle of the home. Integrated landscaping by Paul Bangay Garden Design envelope the building in deep lush garden beds full of mass plantings of flowering evergreen plants and trees. The overall feeling is one of a large domestic garden blending with the surrounding parks and gardens.
A canvas of soft, earthen tones evokes a sense of effortlessness that invite moments of contemplation and unkempt opportunities for repose.
Gently rounded corners are complemented by finely crafted steel elements, creating an elegant addition to the Cherry Road streetscape.
Soft curvature flows internally too. On arrival, residents are greeted with the utmost sophistication. 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.
While soaring expanses of glass invite the external beauty within internal spaces – framing the almost painting-like backdrop of the landscape like canvases on the walls – etchings of metallic and matte-black delineate spaces in a geometric, modern way. This internal linearity is accentuated by architectural features that draw on deco-inspiration. The play of bold vertical lines against gentle curves imbues these homes with a true sensation of craftsmanship.
