Melbourne based property developer, Makshaq has sold 50% of their new residential development, My Place in Melbourne’s Hawthorn.
Designed by CHT Architects and award-winning landscape architects, Jack Merlo Design, My Place is set across two buildings and was designed to have a strong visual identity, integrated communal areas and an escapist feel.
My Place comprises 151 one, two and three bedroom apartments starting from $375,000.
Located on Albert Street in Hawthorn, My Place is in the heart one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs, seven kilometres from the CBD.
‘“We wanted to provide My Place with a strong visual identity utilising a clearly defined geometric patterned façade addressing the predominant views,’ says a CHT Architects spokesperson.
‘The form and façade are combined into a geometric composition of stacked and shifted rectangular parts that integrate into an holistic concept.”
A communal courtyard, linking the two buildings with canopied sitting areas timber terraces and planter boxes will house a café.
A rooftop terrace on the sixth floor will offer views to the north, an outdoor barbecue area with three spas and pergola and an indoor wood-panelled lounge with fireplace provide simultaneous entertaining areas.
The interiors reflect the architecture’s simple, geometric lines with sleek fittings, timber floors and tactile surfaces while rainwater harvesting, cross ventilation and solar power gives My Place a six-star energy rating.
Construction will begin in late 2013 and be completed by mid-2015.
