Inspired by the leafy, green parklands that surround Irving Domain, APH Holding engaged Sydney-based architects, DKO to design the 102-apartment project.  

There was a surge of sales at the proejct launch last year, with an number of the three-bedroom apartments snapped up.

Urban's wrapped up the top five reasons buyers have flocked to Irving Domain.

Parkfront living

The site is positioned on the cusp of Box Hill’s urban development, where the approach transitions from the bustling Box Hill Central, to the leafy neighbourhood Box Hill Gardens.

Box Hill’s celebrated gardens become an extended backyard to Irving Domain, encompassing over 20 acres of space.  

Paved walking paths weave through historic gardens, pillowy lawns, canopy trees and newly-developed sports courts, with playgrounds, a duck pond, barbecue and picnic grounds scattered through as well.

"The gardens offer a tranquil green escape for residents and their neighbours," APH Holding said to the location of Irving Domain. 

At Irving Domain, sweeping panoramas take in the neighbouring parkland, Melbourne city skyline and rolling blue contours of the Dandenong Mountain Ranges. Considered architecture maximises orientation to the views through the use of curves, as well as glazed and transparent walls and balustrades. The interiors have been designed to compliment the neighbouring green space, merging with the surrounding vistas merge with magnificent vistas, allowing the Milieu to become a part of daily life at Irving Domain.

"An ever changing spectacle of light and colour spans from the treetops and greenery of Box Hill Gardens to its leafy neighbourhoods and across to the cityscapes beyond."

Walk to Box Hill Central

With parkside living a major factor drawing buyers into Irving Domain, the development also benefits with it's position on the transition point of Melbourne's second city. 

Box Hill Central sits a mere 550-metres from Irving Domain, with the two-level shopping centre home to over 210 retailers, as well as one of Melbourne's best Asian fresh food markets.  

At Irving Domain, residents benefit from being able to walk to practically everything. The address earns an impressive 94/100 international walk score. Rated a Walker’s Paradise, it is on par with Melbourne’s most sought after inner city neighbourhoods.

For commuting further afield, an efficient transit network whisks travellers away in minutes, with connections to the city centre which sits under 10-kilometres away.  

Generous floorplans

The interiors are designed with attention to how residents will use each space. A mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments are offered at Irving Domain, conceived with the idea of different lifestyles in mind. 

One-bedroom apartments start from around 64 sqm, with the three-bedders spanning 95 sqm. 

Private outdoor rooms and expansive balconies are scaled larger than a conventional apartment plan and protected for use in all seasons, extending each of the homes further. 

A thoughtful design approach brings the features of a traditional home, into the realm of apartment living, say APH. 

A largesse of space is accentuated by the floor-to-ceiling windows utilise throughout, in addition to the open living zones flowing onto the private balconies where glazed balustrades enhance a seamless connection to the neighbouring open space. 

Rooftop deck and gardens

Crowning Irving Domain is the rooftop deck, with the large, private outdoor space acting as a reference to the fundamentals of a traditional home. 

Designed for all seasons, the retreat inspired rooftop features a raised spa, a fully equipped gym, barbecue facilities, and an alfresco dining space, with pockets of seating scattered amongst green landscaping, surrounded by panoramic vistas of Melbourne's landscape. 

The seating areas have been separated by leafy architecture and shade trees, creating a sense of privacy between the larger dining space and the smaller, intimate zones. 

Select ground floor residences at Irving Domain will also open up to private gardens, further adding to the space of the development. 

Apartments from $482,300

The thirteen-level building features a broad selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, designed by one of Sydney's most acclaimed architect companies. 

DKO designed the residences with a focus on the function of each space and how they’ll be used in day-to-day life.

"For instance, a sense of arrival is enhanced by providing a place to store shoes, keys and bags near the front door," DKO say. 

Made for entertaining, the kitchens are light, open and curated to blend with the living and dining areas and provide unhindered outlooks to the surrounding vistas.

The one-bedroom apartments start at the $482,300 price point, spanning 64 sqm with one-bathroom. 

The two-bedders are priced from $662,500, with a mix of floorplans offering one and two-bathroom layouts, as well as a car space in select residences.
