Welcome to Threadneedle, Balwyn.
A rare opportunity to enjoy a residence of thoughtful design, lush greenery and a timeless Balwyn address.
Limited to only 17 residences across two buildings of eight and nine residences, and surrounded by extensive gardens, every element has been considered to create a place of traditional comfort.
Given the quiet residential character of the street with many homes dating back to the 1930s and 1940s, we approached Threadneedle wanting to appear less as a collection of apartments and more as a traditional residence. This led to creating not one but two buildings that could “breathe” with larger garden-based apartments functioning more like small homes.
An array of sustainable design initiatives have been incorporated across Threadneedle. These include targeting a 6.5 Star average energy rating, rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing and landscape irrigation, a solar PV system for energy generation, energy-efficient appliances, a best practice standard for stormwater quality, and a high level of building fabric insulation and glazing to improve the passive energy performance of each residence.
The inspiration for the interior design of Threadneedle evolved from the architecture and lush garden setting. We also looked to the leafy parks and surrounding landscapes to create an atmosphere of garden living and tranquillity through a layering of materials and textures that mimic the elements of nature.
The open plan living space extends to large terraces, creating a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors. A use of natural timber hues in the palette echoes the tones and textures of the gardens.
The kitchens are minimal in design yet expansive in terms of space and storage. With a butler’s pantry, stone benchtops, concealed rangehood and full-height feature joinery, these are naturally elegant spaces both practical and social.
Going beyond a simple study nook, many residences include a dedicated home office. This is a room to find focus in a space that’s awash with natural light, ready with power requirements, and completed by either carpet or timber flooring.
My vision for Threadneedle was to create a botanical garden experience for residents around their home, to heighten the senses and provide the feeling of being enveloped by greenery.
