“Sitting on the highest part of Burwood Road, Arcade offers a building that sparkles and moves rather than remaining static. It will be the tallest of its kind in the area, and with its reflective surface, will become sort of like a beacon.”
“With its reflective facade treatment, Arcade provides onlookers with visual engagement to the architecture. Instead of glancing at the building and summing it up quickly, it's a design you can experience and interpret differently over and over again. It’s going to look spectacular in the middle of Hawthorn, and in some ways, will become quite iconic.”
Sitting as part of an open-plan design, Arcade’s functional kitchen has been curated with consideration for how we naturally move and flow. Full-height joinery provides ample storage without compromising on style, creating a minimalist feel. Natural grey stone adorns the island bench and splashback – a tactile, luxurious finish that is also durable and low maintenance. Bringing an industrial quality to the overall palette, the space is accented by gunmetal tapware.
Set on a base of engineered timber floors, the living area is a light-filled haven for relaxing, dining or entertaining. Warm, neutral tones cultivate a homely atmosphere while encouraging residents to fill the space with their own furniture pieces and objects. Full-height windows and sliding doors to the terrace provide a sense of openness while fostering a vibrant outdoor lifestyle.
The master suite ensures residents will start and finish each day in a private, restful and tranquil environment; their very own retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Generously-sized, the master bedroom boasts plush woollen carpets, providing a soft base underfoot. Becoming an oasis for self-care and solitude, the connecting ensuite conjures an air of serene luxury. A spacious bathtub and shower are set against a backdrop of natural grey stone, complete with gunmetal tapware, plentiful storage and abundant natural light.
“The interiors of Arcade have been well-considered, allowing spaces to be both practical and sophisticated. Two finishes schemes are being offered for selection; Classic and Texture. Texture is really warm and tactile, whereas Classic offers a more neutral palette. The choice of scheme is really the initial opportunity for residents to personalise and inform how their home will look, allowing them to style it to their own vision.”
Capitalising upon striking views, Arcade has been gifted with generous outdoor spaces encompassed by verdant landscaping. The living room leads out to a spacious terrace, a place for residents to entertain guests against an impressive backdrop or relax with their morning cup of coffee.
Fostering sustainability and socialisation, Arcade is complete with an expansive and thoughtfully designed communal garden. A haven for residents to gather with loved ones or relax in the sun amongst lush vegetation.
Whilst improving air quality, a variety of plantings creates a tranquil and picturesque environment for residents to enjoy as they please. Perch yourself down on a bench seat and bask in the incredible sense of wellbeing that comes with being surrounded by greenery.
Perfect for dinner parties on warm nights, the communal area boasts a BBQ, a range of covered seating and private pockets for individual gatherings along with expansive views of the city skyline and streetscape.
