Urban's three favourite things about Luminary:

  • The striking facade with overhanging plants.
  • Prime location within walking distance to retail and transport.
  • Spacious apartments with generously sized balconies.

Making a grand entrance into the exclusive suburb of Hawthorn is Luminary Hawthorn. Developer Lechte Corporation joins Plus Architecture to create 24 residences across three levels. This low-rise building brings to Hawthorn a restrained sense of luxury fused with cutting-edge technology, casting new light on today’s evolving vibrant lifestyle.

Luminary’s exterior is a combination of strong lines and curves that frame the windows and balconies, drawing from white and soft grey palettes. It’s just a step outside your front door and a lift ride down to ground level to grab a bite from Church Street's varied retail and entertainment strip. 

When we speak about living in spacious luxury, Luminary has done away with facilities such as dining rooms and theatres reflective of larger apartment developments, opting instead for expansive apartments with their own beautiful terraces. Rather than a communal rooftop terrace, Luminary prefers to focus on large private gardens with an in-built barbecue for each apartment. The large raised planter beds set up with watering systems and draping foliage will appeal to the greenest of proverbial thumbs.

The grand lobby boasts wool herringbone carpet, bronze finishes, and European oak floorboards -- there’s even a shared wine storage cellar for those wine connoisseurs amongst you!

The same lavish elements from the grand lobby continue into the apartments’ interiors with full height joinery, walk-in pantries, and European marble finishes. While we’re talking attention to detail, you won’t be disappointed by the light timber finish flooring and marble tiles in the bathrooms. You’ll love the feature cabinetry in the living areas which feature clever storage, lots of room for your big TV screens, and any other state-of-the-art technology you can’t wait to show off to your friends.

If it’s a dinner party you want to throw, you’ll be impressed by the entertaining quality of Luminary’s homes. Sleek kitchens featuring marble-top island benches, black tapware, and brass finishes will give you just the right amount of industrial flair to keep your friends itching to be invited again and again.
