Lowe Living – Topaz Parkdale Design Partner Feature
Enduring style captured in a coastal gem.
Leading the market in property development and construction, Lowe Living continues to redefine expectations and outcomes for medium-density residential homes with its latest project, Topaz Parkdale.
An enduring expression of design excellence and contemporary style, Topaz Parkdale is a rare collection of premium residences just moments away from the golden sands and glistening blue waters of Parkdale Beach. This stunning ensemble of one, two and three bedroom apartments and three-bedroom townhomes is the collaborative effort of Lowe Living with renowned team Chamberlain Architects and one of Australia’s leading landscape architects Jack Merlo.
Every Lowe Living project is the inspired collaboration of our passionate and dedicated team, industry-leading experts and renowned partners, who are carefully selected for their calibre, experience with location and suitability to the site. The shared vision of the exemplary team of Lowe Living, Chamberlain Architects and Jack Merlo has been realised in each light-filled residence set in verdant landscaping at Topaz Parkdale.
Inspired by the unique nature of the site and its surrounds, Chamberlain Architects’ design intent finds expression in a contemporary tri-level built form that achieves perfect synergy with the surrounding streetscape. Director Glen Chamberlain explains the use of contrasting brick work references the predominant building material in the Parkdale area, and helps to breakdown the scale of the apartment building facing Nepean Highway. Set back from the apartments in the idyllically quiet Thomas Court are four generously proportioned townhomes, with heavily articulated upper levels to create a visually interesting composition. “It was important to come up with a design that could mediate between the distinctly different contexts provided by the two street frontages,” says Glen.
A standout design feature of Topaz is the bright, airy spaces that seamlessly transition to generous outdoor areas. “The majority of the dwellings have been orientated to the north to maximise access to natural light. Combined with generous private open space areas, the dwellings retain a lush suburban feel”, explains Glen.
“Bright, airy spaces that have a focus on liveability and connection to generous outdoor areas.”
Bringing a unique architectural approach to landscape design, Jack Merlo has developed a landscape scheme at Topaz to complement the clean architectural lines and full-height doors that spill out to courtyards and secluded balconies, extending the living experience. “The expansive glazing provides beautifully landscaped backdrops to internal spaces,” says Director Jack Merlo.
Bespoke landscaping of lush greenery creates an exquisite setting for entertaining and alfresco living. While the dappled natural light and gentle shadowing of the shade trees are perfect for quiet contemplation and will induce a palpable sense of wellness.
“A beautifully landscaped low maintenance setting.”
Located just moments away from the welcoming atmosphere of Parkdale Shopping Village and the calm blue waters of Port Phillip Bay, Topaz Parkdale is a prized seaside gem and presents an opportunity for buyers to enjoy all the spoils of this coastal haven.
