Kew’s exclusive Sackville Ward precinct is set to welcome eight townhouses that draw inspiration from Tate Modern, the most-visited art gallery in the world.

Designed by Cera Stribley Architects, Tate will feature handmade bricks, fluted glass features, brass trimmings, traditional proportioning and symmetry throughout, including crafted joinery and custom-designed wardrobes from furniture pioneer, Poliform.

A collection of three and four bedroom homes ranging in size from 230 sqm to 287 sqm.

Over half of the residences dedicate an entire top floor to the master suite.

Domenic Cerantonio of Cera Stribley Architects said Tate draws inspiration from Kew’s Edwardian, angular roof forms.

“These angles in the interiors create a confident sense of entry to each residence, really emphasising that feeling of ‘coming home’," Cerantonio said.

“The brickwork and strong masonry that is synonymous with heritage homes in Kew is something that was important to capture."

There’s an option for buyers to have a lift that goes from the basement parking through to the top of each residence.

ANGLE development manager Marcus Boscarato said no other project in Kew offers the same level of detail and specification as Tate, with developments being few and far between due to the suburb’s heritage overlay and tight zoning controls.

“Tate has been designed with both downsizers and families alike who either live in the local area or have aspirations to be close to the plethora of private schools that are within a 1km walk from your front door.

Another collaborator on the project is Eckersley Garden Architecture, who have designed a secluded entry feature along with courtyards for each home ranging in size up to 60sqm, complemented by a crafted concrete seating bench.

Other collaborators include Gaggenau appliances and feature lights by Archier.

Townhouses range in price from $1.895 million to $2.25 million and will officially launch to market in late October.
