Malvern HillMalvern VIC Australia
Malvern Hill is an example of how thoughtfully designed, medium density living can complement an existing established neighbourhood. Located on a 1.0 hectare site of the former MECWA aged care facility, Malvern Hill provides a range of diverse apartment types set in a ‘gardenesque’ environment. The introduction of ‘Warner Lane’ through the middle of the site reconnects the property with the neighbourhood as well as providing a new identity and address for the project.
The site also adjoins a commercial precinct on Malvern Road, allowing additional height and density for the project, away from the low-rise apartments which have an interface with single and double storey existing dwellings on Elizabeth Street. A series of courtyards and landscaped zones have been arranged throughout the site to enhance the outlook, amenity and open space for the new apartments.
