A NOSTALGIC NOD: MELBOURNE'S TATE MODERN
Heard of the Tate Modern? We thought so. As one of the world's most well-known art galleries, situated all the way in London, this iconic gallery is the point of inspiration for property developers ANGLE and Cera Stribley's latest projected here in our very own Melbourne. Located in Sackville Ward in Kew, this collection of eight residences expresses a nostalgic fusion of Kew and British architecture, and will have you dreaming of distant British shores.
With heavy brickwork, folding surfaces and angled entires - the design combines classical building blocks with contemporary touches. The boundless design features handmade, custom bricks from Piera Ecocerámica in Barcelona - customised in a light, creamy hue with tonal variance. If you're a sucker for classic British architecture, the pitched roof will leave you drooling. Not only does it make room for an angular skylight above the sitting area attached to the master suite, it conceals the third level of two of the street-facing homes - so it's as practical as it is beautiful.
If you haven't been sold already, the marble bench tops, oak floors, fluted glass and antique brass features might do the trick - not to mention the custom Poliform wardrobes.
If you're like us here at TLSE and can't get enough of these townhouses, you can read more about them here.
