Woods Bagot and Hecker Guthrie have joined forces again to deliver Piccolo’s vision for 31 boutique residences at Elwood House. The team has created a four level building that embraces the leafy streets of Elwood through its façade and offers contemporary luxury. The building’s calming façade melds exposed concrete, slender profile brickwork handmade in Denmark and irrigated balcony planter boxes overflowing with greenery.

Grey Aether natural stone floors are present underfoot throughout all apartments and continue through to kitchen benchtops, while American Oak timber cabinetry adorns kitchens and storage areas. Bespoke joinery continues into the open plan living rooms where a custom entertainment cabinet provides hidden storage. A large wall unit in American Oak timber provides yet more storage options, as well as a hideaway marble bar and built-in study desk – all contained behind easily closable doors, providing flexibility in living space use.

Bathrooms are set against a leafy, green backdrop made possible through the inclusion of clever private terraces that encourage natural ventilation. A Branco Venna natural stone on bathroom wall surfaces works to juxtapose the organic weathered brass fixtures, while features maximise practicality.

Elwood House is scheduled for construction commencement in June 2015 and completion by end 2016.
