Warren and Mahoney design the new residential area of ​​Kew


Residential developer Carpe is preparing to open its new showroom suite for The Walton, offering a glimpse into the residences designed by Warren and Mahoney.

Approved in July, The Walton sits on the corner of Walpole and Eglinton streets. Surrounded by heritage dwellings, the design language of the building seeks to maintain continuity in the streetscape.

“We have been looking forward to this project as we have undertaken a lot of work at Bayside and have recently begun construction on our very successful project at Eaglemont,” said Carpe Director and Co-Founder Tim Campbell.

“We feel privileged to have the opportunity to develop this fine corner address and have worked closely with neighbors to ensure that our modern version will fit seamlessly into the Walpole lifestyle.”

“The Walton will stand the test of time, ready for what tomorrow brings; it is a new heritage in the making. There is purpose in everything we do at Carpe, with a strong focus on craftsmanship, detail and finish and this project underlines that approach.

Carp co-founder and director Stuart Kacir said the developer wanted to create an address that celebrates Kew both for who it was and who it is today.

“The look of the property is quite stunning and we were fortunate enough to work with Warren and Mahoney to capitalize on the positioning of the site on the side of a small rise, perched above the horizon. the Dandenong Ranges can be enjoyed to the east, with some flats overlooking the bend in the Yarra River and the natural belt that follows it.

“All oversized apartments in the 2 and 3 bedroom configurations are luxuriously appointed. Large master bedrooms, oversized robes, wide hallways and intuitive planning are important to our buyer. European oak floors, Miele appliances, generous terraces and expansive gardens with street entrances for the ground floor apartments add further appeal.

Warren and Mahoney director Nick Deans says the surrounding historical context informed the materials selected to create a sense of presence for the Walpole Street address.

“The exterior facade of the building is surrounded by stone as a modern interpretation of Kew’s iconic buildings. It also sets the tone for the adornment that can be expected inside. We took a very personalized approach to each of the apartments to make the most of the space, taking into account the flow of life and making the most of the exterior aspects available for views,” he says.

“Each layer of the design is completely unique, and there is an intentional change of materials between blocks. No two residence or penthouse designs are the same, each offering a unique home to buyers.

Warren and Mahoney also designed the Walton’s interiors, the approach being described as one of quiet sophistication. Two color schemes have been designed for customization – both intentionally lighter.

“Both palettes are neutral to allow owners to dial in their own unique style and we’ve included a warmer colorway, with honey and smoky blonde undertones and a cooler second, which pulls in silver, green and blue hues. “, Deans says,

“We paid particular attention to making interesting joinery inside, which sits next to the walls of the apartment and gives the appearance of intentionally placed furniture in each apartment. As they are all considered individually, it was a pleasure to design and we were able to include some nice optional upgrades – like an internal dressing table or a ‘gem station’ for dressing rooms. »

The Walton’s exhibition suite will open by appointment only from 17 October 2022, located on Cotham Road in Kew Junction. Visit www.thewalton.com.au for more information.
