Fronting onto parkland reserve… located between Cherry Lake and the Altona beachfront… a short stroll from the cafes of Pier Street. In the heart of this fast-evolving neighbourhood, Civic Parade merits nothing less than an exceptional collection of townhouses.
Our vision was to design five elegantly minimal contemporary townhouses, refined in form and material selection, ahead of the curve in every respect.
The most striking first impression of the building is how lightly it occupies the space. A mosaic of soft grey brickwork floats above the black metal cladding of the ground floor. A sculpted balcony seamlessly emerges from the street facing façade, gently curves around the corner and continues along the side of the building. A double-storey arched window rising to the angular roofline emulates the curved shape of the corner balcony.
The interior spaces continue the soft grey theme established by the intricate brickwork facing the street front. Vertically patterned off-white wall tiles blend with the soft grey floor tiles of the bathrooms. Delicately veined grey on-white marble enhances the benches and splashbacks in the ultra-stylish kitchen. The island marble workbench subtly reflects the curve of the building’s frontage. Windows rise to the ceiling line in the light washed living areas. Muted timber floors on the lower levels merge with carpets in neutral textured greys above. In Townhouse 1 a meticulously designed timber staircase connects the levels and creates a natural lightwell.
The inimitable design calls for a standard of precision crafting and attention to detail that only a builder the likes of Mancini Made can deliver.
