Hurstmon is the latest offering from Landream, transforming Melbourne’s south-eastern suburb of Malvern East.

Situated at 3 Hurstmon Street, the residences form an eye-catching landmark while complementing the rich history of the suburb.

Designed by Telha Clarke, each residence includes double-glazing, ducted heating and a butler’s pantry, with floorplans responsive to changes and requests from homebuyers.

Handcrafted lighting by Richmond-based studio Articolo also features in the project’s foyer.

Hurstmon has a “hidden-gem quality”, according to architect Tim Clarke – a quality that extends into each residence and its layered textures.

Residents looking to secure a home in the development can choose from two design schemes curated by the architects.

The two colour schemes, green and grey, add to the palette of earthy tones that complement the home’s location.

1. Slate Green

Adding to the palette of earthy tones, slate green joinery that distinguishes the kitchen harmonises with the interior’s walnut timber flooring, natural stone and brushed nickel accents.

“The timber floorboards are a really warm, rich, tactile tone”, Telha Clarke associate Harriet Fell said.

Mirroring the verdant streetscape of Malvern East, the green accents convey a natural presence and reference the landscaping on the building’s exterior to seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors.

2. Soft Grey

Meshing with the light-coloured walls of the home and the natural stone splashback and benchtops, the soft grey palette delivers residents a blank canvas to make their own.

This design scheme complements the rammed earth materials of the home’s distinctive vertical blades.

These columns are integrated into the structure of the building and double as an eye-catching aesthetic element, bringing warmth to the building.

Architect Stuart Telha said the many colours of the rammed earth give a distinctive tonal variation to the exterior.

“It depends on what the light’s doing – sometimes they look quite orange and sometimes they look grey,” he said.

Bordered by a commercial building on one side and two-storey brick homes to the other, Hurstmon delivers a restrained design to transition the two with minimal features but warm textures.

 Two-bedroom apartments in the project start from $795,000 while three-bedroom apartments begin at $1,599,500.

The project is estimated for completion in early 2022. Hopeful buyers can secure floorplans and information from an agent today.
