Working from home just got a whole lot easier thanks to Rok Project Group and ClarkeHopkinsClarke's innovative approach to modern apartment design. At KingsVillage, you can start your day with a morning coffee at the on-site cafe, and work from your apartment's dedicated study area which is complete with integrated shelving and storage, meaning you no longer have to resort to the kitchen table.

We spoke to Motion Property Sales Manager, Jennifer Hogan, who shared what makes KingsVillage a future-focused and sought after property in Melbourne's burgeoning suburb of Kingsville

Jennifer Hogan: Located on a corner, the KingsVillage architecture has optimised the streetscape to great advantage. The bold and angular compositions frame the entire building with large windows, and a mixture of timber, brick and concrete. From the street, the architecture is all apartments, with the clever design of concealing the driveway to the double underground carpark, via a side cobblestoned lane.

The interiors also have a highly natural theme,  avoiding over-stylized features which would become outdated.

U: If a buyer was deciding between KingsVillage and a similar residential development in the area, what do you think makes KingsVillage unique and the favourable option?

JH: KingsVillage is a boutique complex with a variety of floorplans,  allowing for many differences in size and aspects. The project is uniquely positioned, away from any high-density apartment blocks, in a charming leafy pocket of period style homes, and commands a corner position allowing some apartments to view over the rooftops to the never to be built out view of the city skyline.

U: In your opinion, what are some of the best amenities on-site or nearby?

JH: KingsVillage is located in the small suburb of Kingsville, nestled adjoining the trendy Yarraville and Seddon, offering the local art scene, cafés and boutique shopping within walking distance. For trips further afield, literally at the doorstep is West Footscray Station, buses on Williamstown Road, and extensive bicycle paths to the riverside and the city.

Universities, hospitals, sporting grounds, markets festivals and more are all easily accessible from KingsVillage.

U: What was the inspiration behind the design of the development?

JH: KingsVillage was designed to set standards in function and form. Eye-catching and angular in exterior design and focus on large open plan living and gorgeous finishes on the inside. The inspiration was to compliment the charm of the suburb Kingsville.

U: If you had to use only five words to describe KingsVillage, what would they be?

JH: Boutique, contemporary, practical. The new standard in the west.
