The project is a collaboration, initiated by progressive developer Kalex, between DesignOffice, Jackson Clements Burrows, Urban Commons and Great Dane Furniture.

The three-storey townhouses feature brick facades and external roof terraces and all have direct access from either Park Street or Raphael Street.

DesignOffice were commissioned to design all aspects of the interiors for the houses, from conceptual planning through to joinery detailing and finishes selection.

At the heart of each house is the communal cook’s kitchen, developed in collaboration with the local craftspeople at Cantilever. The kitchens are positioned centrally within the houses with the aim of creating a series of adjacent spaces, both indoor and outdoor, designed to provide occupants with a range of connected environments for living, relaxing and dining.

Ensuite bathrooms are arranged to maximise access to natural light and are screened from the adjoining sleeping areas by a layered threshold of timber-framed glazing and drapery by Kvadrat. The hotel-style bathrooms feature walk-in showers, custom joinery and separate WCs.

The interior palette is defined by neutral tones and tactile surfaces, combining concrete and oak floors, woollen carpets, ceramic tiles and stainless steel worktops.

The Park and Raphael Display Suite opened in Abbotsford in September 2013. Visualisations are by Floodslicer.
