Lowe Living – Emerald Place Design Partner Feature
The latest and highly sought-after project in Lowe Living’s extensive collection of medium-density residences offers a bespoke celebration of South Melbourne’s rich past and coveted present.
Lowe Living remains focused on delivering a market-leading design, leading build quality and a high-quality end product. Promising to deliver a significant addition to the South Melbourne area’s vibrant urban landscape, Lowe Living partnered with globally renowned architect, Woods Bagot, and acclaimed landscape architect, Acre, for Emerald Place to present an exclusive collection of thirty-six superbly designed homes.
The project comprises of residential apartments, seamlessly enhanced by boutique retail and commercial spaces, to present an unrivalled level of luxury that defies all expectations in the heart of South Melbourne.
The design vision for Emerald Place embraces the rich architectural history of the surrounding late 19th and early 20th-century buildings. Woods Bagot’s innovative approach incorporates polychromatic brickwork and scale, that harmoniously blends with the site context. Acre has complemented the architecture to deliver a lush, verdant botanic setting in vertical landscapes, ensuring a seamless connection with nature.
Ana Sá, Associate Principal at Woods Bagot highlights, “Emerald Place represents a prominent corner statement and a contemporary interpretation of Victorian charm that sits sympathetically within its South Melbourne context.
Drawing inspiration from the ubiquitous corner pubs, the design principles of detailed brickwork and a strong vertical grid have informed the project’s narrative. The polychromatic brickwork references the local 19th-century palette in a uniquely contemporary expression for a timeless architecture that is truly of its place.”
High-quality finishes and appliances feature throughout the residential offering, with natural stones, porcelain tiles, engineered timber flooring, wool carpets, premium fixtures including Astra Walker tapware, as well as Gaggenau and Liebherr appliances.
This development also has a commitment to achieve a minimum 7-Star NatHERs rating in operation.
Drawing on our expertise in the boutique luxury development space, Lowe Living aimed to deliver a premium offering whilst retaining a distinct customer focus on luxury owner-occupier.
Tim Lowe shares, “We are very excited to bring this unique project to market. No detail has been spared in Emerald Place, and it truly embodies our commitment to excellence and innovation. We were astutely focused on the luxury owner occupier, therefore we wanted to ensure the design responded to both the expectations of this buyer, as well as the desired lifestyle with local amenity on your doorstep.
We worked closely with Woods Bagot to ensure the floorplans offered a variety of considered layouts to suit the unique needs of our clients with expansive and thoughtfully landscaped private outdoor spaces by Acre. Arriving home to Emerald Place is an opportunity for our buyers to escape the urban atmosphere of South Melbourne and step inside a verdant, tranquil and luxurious haven.”
