Huntingtower Road, a typical Armadale street, consists of large houses with equally large gardens. For architecture studio Jolson and developer Orchard Piper, the team that brought this eponymous new development to life, designing a building with plenty of natural light in harmony with the high-quality living environment was crucial.
Situated on a wide and undulating street in Armadale (a suburb of Australian metropolitan Perth), known for its landscape and large gardens, the designers at Jolson Architecture did not want to lose that sense of the environment in their Huntingtower Road Apartments project. Timelessness with a contemporary touch was their goal. Each Jolson Architecture project defines itself with a holistic experience between the architecture, the interior and the landscape. Thanks to their transparent lines of communication with the client, each project is a deliberate dialogue between space, light, volume and emotion. Architectural firm Jolson designed the Huntingtower Road Apartments project in collaboration with developer Orchard Piper. The end result is a low building with ten apartments in a simple European inspired design framed by beautiful gardens. This European design is palpable in the distinctive deep arches and textured plasterwork that completely encompass the exterior of Huntingtower Road. Through this kind of construction, the architects gave a soft and sculptural feel and immediately their own identity to this project.
This sculpture gave the project a soft and sculptural feel.
There are four two-bedroom apartments and six three-bedroom apartments. Each of the five apartments called Garden Residences has a private garden. The top five apartments, called Terrace Residences, have integrated planters on their generous balconies. In addition, the trees and repeating details throughout the building create a cohesive whole. Glass walls from floor to ceiling and large windows with steel frames take care of the garden views, which can also be appreciated from the inside. Indoor-outdoor living fully embodies Huntingtower Road. Moreover, the project was intended to feel like a large house in a garden.
Inside the apartments, the interiors feature three-metre-high ceilings, clean lines, stone fireplaces and oak floors. The palette is kept neutral with soft tones so that the future residents can personalise it according to their own wishes. Both young families and elderly couples are the target audience for this project. Thanks to the many options of multiple living spaces and versatile rooms, there is something for everyone. Are you a fan of this project? We have previously also written about Arc Side, another unique renovation by Jolson Architecture. A dramatic spiral staircase emerged as the most striking element of the home which we thought was undoubtedly a bold but very successful choice.
