The Hawthorn ClubArchitecture / Marketing / Residential
Client: Manors Gate Group
Taking inspiration from its sophisticated surroundings in Hawthorn, one of Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs, Hawthorn Club sits proudly on the corner of Luton Lane and Glenferrie Road.
Broken in half along the boundary to respect the finer grain of Victorian architecture and intimate scale of Luton Lane, Hawthorn Club features a long façade with cut-outs and a planter zone to create rhythm, whilst emphasising the break in the building. A metal pergola lines the rooftop to create further interest with the building’s visual depth.
Building materials adhere to the area’s sophistication with luxurious travertine and bluestone. The ground floor retail space features a glass façade and a gradient glass canopy to provide sophisticated sun protection.
Targeting the style conscious and wealthy Hawthorn demographic, the development features 64 stylish chic apartments, the majority a mix of one and two beds and only four three-bed apartments, and provides great access to nearby universities, transport and schools.
Interiors are sympathetic to the façade and a timeless design allows residents to personalise the space with a minimal palette creating a lightness, which responds to the exterior.
Timber floors throughout and full height doors create an openness, while crisp and clean satin bronze metal finishes, porcelain stone bench tops, 2pac joinery and travertine style tiles in the bathroom create a premium aesthetic.
Pivot doors enable residents to create a larger bedroom area, or a separate study area, and a fixed glazed panel separates the bedroom from the kitchen, allowing light to flow through.
