Denoting soft curves and a timeless palette of materials, DKO Architecture has teamed up with Mim Design and Paul Bangay to present Balwyn Park — 12 exclusive 3 bedroom homes in a family-friendly location.
Emulating the luxuriance of the park opposite, greenery is central to Balwyn Park’s exterior, where meandering vines and spilling tendrils adorn every angle of the home. It’s elegant façade also wonderfully mirrors the affluent suburb it sits in, while a dignified form of modern grandeur and artistry gives the development a distinctive presence in the area.
Its opulent, yet understated touches begin at the front door, where residents and guests are greeted by a mirrored surface treated with a luxurious bronze hue. These are sided by dark timber front doors, fixed with sophisticated black handles. As high-end as the suite of finishes that lie within, Balwyn Park’s entrances provide an accurate first impression of the home.
Inside, the utmost sophistication of this project is truly realised. Leading from the hotel-esque lobby, which encourages a communal spirit among residents, each home is full of a bold combination of vertical lines and gentle curves that imbue these spaces with a true sensation of craftsmanship.
“A lot of time and thought has been put into those exterior finishes, shape, and form by DKO Architects,” says Mim Fanning, director Mim Design. “We wanted to translate that into the interior as well, with soft curvature through part of the planning and the walls.”
Soaring expanses of glass invite the external beauty within the internal spaces, creating a brilliant glean across the living areas and allows for perfect viewing of the almost painting-like backdrop.
Similar contemplation has been made with the generous storage options and ingenious flow of the space. Stylish kitchen pantries for your culinary supplies, sculleries with ample room for your crockery, elegant living room cabinetry, and spacious bathroom vanities – Balwyn Park leaves no stone unturned.
The stone finishes, meanwhile, are adorned immaculately throughout. While visually beautiful and undeniably luxurious, these will age gracefully with time, both aesthetically and physically.
The bedrooms are spacious, light-filled and continue this opulent lifestyle, while 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.
Each living area is seamlessly connected with the outdoor terrace via wonderful sliding doors, forming the most expansive of entertaining areas and is in keeping with the botanical feel of the rest of Balwyn Park.
“Balwyn Park sits in the leafy eastern suburbs of Melbourne, renowned for its large and beautiful gardens, says Paul Bangay, director of Paul Bangay Garden Design.
“This development provided a rare opportunity to 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.”
With its collection of recreational retreats and strong community energy, Balwyn’s family-friendly charm is seen in every facet of the suburb’s offerings. The area is full of sporting clubs, ovals, and gymnasiums, while Kew Golf Club nearby — unlimited opportunity to both relax and exercise for all ages.
Balwyn also boasts culinary experiences for every palate at any time of the day. Whether it’s a uniquely crafted lunch, or a restaurant presenting the perfect atmosphere for a weekend of socialising with friends, everything is on the table.
The suburb’s shopping and retail experience eliminate any need to venture into the city. With sophisticated boutique shopping to Deepdene Shopping Centre and Westfield Doncaster, there are retail essentials at your fingertips.
Whitehorse Road boasts a range of cultural establishments designed solely to entertain, including the undeniably iconic Palace Cinema. Make a night of it whilst honouring the cinema’s European heritage with a glass of French wine in one of two sophisticated bars, brought to life during the reformation.
Return from your exclusive evening to your equally unique residence at Balwyn Park — a home of timeless elegance and classic simplicity.
