Washington Street compromises of 6 meticulously crafted residences which have been carefully detailed, offering flexibility, amenity and security in one of Melbourne’s finest locations. Jolson’s holistic approach to exterior and interior design is manifested in a sculptured two-storey podium with an articulated facade, blade walls and deep reveals. The resulting geometry engages with the streetscape as well as the carefully conceived landscape.
A woven metal veil is draped between the blade walls to the street facade, creating private terraces which draw dappled light into the street-front residences, offering texture, depth and privacy.
The penthouse is a single residence on the top floor, conceived as an elevated pavilion set within a landscape setting. Surrounded on all four sides by garden, natural light, and breathtaking views, the pavilion’s dark metal exterior treatment and recessive nature distinguishes it from the podium below.
A rich material palette of travertine stone, timber floors, polished plaster walls along the woven brass screens, and bronzed metal detailing create a textures, harmonious setting, proving a continuous dialogue between the interior spaces and seasonal change of the garden.
