Grace Glen Iris

Malvern Road, Glen Iris 

40 apartments over 4 levels 

2014 – 

Grace comprises 40 apartments over 4 levels, ranging in size from 1 to 3 bedroom. Grace is located in an area recently designated for higher density living and so the design was required to respond to an existing context of single level detached dwellings; this was achieved by introducing a highly modulated façade treatment, elegant vertical proportions, and a stepped form to breakdown the building scale. The result is a 4 level building that sits comfortably within its changing context. A restrained materials palette of natural render and metal cladding creates a highly sophisticated appearance.
