Architecturally designed homes that provide an alternative streetscape and an elegant style of living with an open plan design and luxury inclusions.
The Ivy Townhomes precinct has been thoughtfully designed as a unique residential development, with its own personality.
The use of familiar materials and familiar forms in a modern way has created visual interest, along with varying heights, strong geometric patterning and striking materiality. The uninterrupted streetscape and garden presentation has been achieved by designing all vehicular access from the rear lane.
Meticulously considered features include internal lightcourts to provide more light deeper into the dwellings as well as an opportunity for a second small garden space, ideal for a kitchen herb garden.
A number of dwellings offering studio over double garage, accessed via stairs and terrace from the rear garden provide flexibility for the modern Australian lifestyle.
The design approach by landscape architects Rush Wright Associates for The Ivy Townhomes responds positively to Doreen’s suburban landscape character, to reflect the natural and cultural values of the area to enhance the streetscape experience and provide clear connections between the Ivy, Plenty Gorge Parklands and surrounding neighbourhoods. The masterplan proposes a celebration of remnant native landscape, selected indigenous plant species and local building materials.
A series of unique gardens respond to the individual housing type and form. Solar aspects and wind protection dictate the placement of different vegetation and private terraces to allow use of garden spaces.
Each front and backyard include a series of boundary plantings and gardens which enclose private gathering spaces and entry pathways. The planting provides a distinct identity to each street.
Boutique at its heart, the design has been carefully considered to maximise the rich surrounding greenery, and unsurpassed connectivity between The Ivy community and the future Mernda Town Centre.
Developed and delivered by an experienced team who care about creating a community that instantly feels like home, the quality and ingenuity of The Ivy will stand the test of time.
