Construction begins this month on the Hampden by RMA, Armadale project.

It comes with nine three-bedroom residences designed by Rob Mills Architects.

The apartment prices at 2a Hampden Road start at $2.9 million through Mark Wridgway at RT Edgar.

A series of arches across the brick facade reflects RMA’s signature design feature with Mills taking his inspiration from the Fendi headquarters in Rome.

Mills former property in beachside Lorne, Victoria came with curved concrete detailing on the facade completed in 2009.

“Like the Art Deco buildings, when all the corners of the walls are curved, that very simple touch, means the interior is at one with the exterior," he told News Corp's Home magazine.

"It’s a complete experience. It’s a surreal experience, travelling around the corner into the next space without stopping sharply. 

"We do know that grids are not conducive to a calm way of life. As human beings we want something more sculptural to envelop us.”

Four of the apartments have been sold, with Rob Mills intending to live in one on its completion in 2023.
