Tucked away on an exquisitely verdant street, Jardine brings a new level of design ingenuity to the leafy oasis of Briar Hill. Crafted by acclaimed firm DKO Architecture, this boutique collection of considered townhomes is inspired by the naturally rich landscape that encompasses it, as well as the modernist residence that formerly occupied its site. Interiors are effortless, contemporary and encased in a framework of meticulous and functional architecture. Encapsulating the meeting point of history, innovation and natural beauty, Jardine is an exemplar of residential excellence.
Jardine’s external architecture succeeds in being respectful of its site, unique in its appearance and timeless in its appeal – a balance that when achieved, results in faultless design. Low-pitched roofs provide shade and shelter, floating above a strong masonry base. Pairing clean modernist lines with an asymmetrical form, the façade honours the site’s former dwelling while presenting a contemporary aesthetic to the street interface. Bespoke features like the aforementioned bricks and the timber framing around the entrances imbue Jardine with a strong sense of craftsmanship and authenticity; residents return home each day to a home that feels personal and considered. Additionally, artful landscaping allows the building to settle cohesively into its natural surrounds.
Jardine’s interiors are defined as much by what exists outside of the home as what is found within. A seamless connection between inside and outside is achieved via soaring, floor to ceiling windows, which draw the luscious surrounds inward while inviting natural light to flood living areas. The architecture has embraced the natural slope of the site, which in turn, affords internal areas with generous ceiling heights, ample sunlight and optimal ventilation. Within spacious, open-plan kitchen and living areas, a palette of natural textures and subdued colours is found at play, allowing residents to style spaces to their liking while again, leaving room for that magnificent outdoor splendour. Enviable kitchens boast plentiful storage, sophisticated appliances and mirrored splashbacks that bounce light playfully around the interior.
