Boutique block of only 20 apartments by developer GIBSON DEVELOPMENTS. In The Maitland, Bruce Henderson has conceived a sculptured piece of architecture, defined by its layering of material, tonality and depth. Sensitively designed to complement the heritage buildings of the area, a juxtaposition of warm whites and charcoal grey steel creates a linear rhythm across the façade. Orientated towards the north, terraces and walls of glass allow sunlight to spill into the home, with a striking series of blades creating shade, privacy and a constant connection with the natural surrounds. This interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces adds a sense of grand proportions to each residence. With landscaped terraces extending the living area, and accentuating the architectural relationship with nature, the apartments become elevated homes with private gardens. A focus on landscaping and materiality continues in The Maitland lobby where warm limestone and a towering garden wall create a striking first impression. This is a highly textural space with natural stone, angled panels and champagne metal trims subtly illuminated by recessed lighting. Clean, simple and elegant, this beautiful space acts as a visual prelude to the residences above. Jack Merlo has crafted a unique and evolving landscape for The Maitland – the second collaboration between the acclaimed landscaper and Gibson Developments. Here, plants and natural materials act as an extension of the home through an organic and holistic approach to design. Limestone and flamed granite provide sustainable touches of beauty, and pergolas adorned with vines offer shade in summer, allow sunlight to bathe the terraces in winter, and soften the bold lines of the architecture. While all residences open to spacious balconies, the two apartment terraces on level three also feature luxurious outdoor spas. Jack Merlo has designed The Maitland landscape to change with the seasons, with a range of plants taking centre stage throughout year. Fragrant Orange Jasmine plants provide a sweet perfume, planters of English Box line the perimeter, and bougainvilleas add bursts of colour to a lush and ever-changing panorama. Within The Maitland residences, a sense of natural refinement is expressed through exquisite textures, an ordered composition of space and a nuanced palette. These are light, bright and welcoming homes where the exterior and interior design is articulated in the same tonal language. Warm white walls are enriched by darker accents and subtle textures, from cool stone to rich oak. Many of the homes feature double doors at the entrance, leading into generous open plan kitchen, living and dining spaces. In the private areas of the home, elegant bedrooms with walk-in robes lead to ensuites with custom designed Omvivo vanity units unique to The Maitland. These are residences designed to enhance a contemporary lifestyle, with luxuriously appointed kitchens positioned at the heart of the home. Here, large island benches offer a deliberate shift from a traditional dining room, while clever ergonomics and storage ensure that cooking and sharing meals are effortless and social experiences. Integrated European appliances, chrome fixtures and fittings, natural stone benchtops and recessed lighting add final touches of opulence. The tightly held enclave of Glen Iris is home to a well-established collection of beloved providores, cafés and restaurants – many of which are only a short walk from The Maitland. Local streets are lined with everything from wine stores offering local tastings to longstanding bakeries renowned for handmade confections. The Maitland is located between four parks, including Malvern Public Gardens, a community favourite known for its public sporting events and moonlight concerts. For adventures further afield, Gardiners Creek Trail is perfect for bike lovers as it winds its way through Richmond and on to the city. Surrounded by the vibrant and picturesque suburbs of Toorak, Malvern, Hawthorn and Camberwell, Glen Iris residents rarely need to venture far to enjoy the best of Melbourne. With boutiques, eateries and parklands close by, this is a place to savour village living and the finer things in life, all just moments from home.
