BNG Group's latest residential project, Olea, has been developed to complement both the exisiting neighbourhood character and street presence, whilst delivering an individual architectural addition to the site.

The Kambrook Road development has been designed by Melbourne-locals, CK Architecture, in an effort to appeal to a wide buyer type, with just seven, various-sized townhouses, along with 58 one, two and three-bedroom apartments. 

With a distinctive built form, each of the apartments have been positioned to surround a pivotal central courtyard - which is the heart of the project. 

Basking in northern aspects and with a considered landscape design, Olea's courtyard creates a seamless transition from the indoors to the out, which CK Managing Director, Domenic Crisante says is a sought-after feature in modern design. 

“Generous greenery and communal spaces balance the landscape and built form to give additional character to Olea,” says Crisante. 

To further decrease the impact the development has on the exisiting neighbourhood, Olea has been broken down into zoned interfaces. 

The townhouses form the front of the site, positioned facing the street to maintain the village feel of Caulfield North, with the definition of smaller sections of the building's frontage creating individual components which have their own street access, as well as a sense of address. 

The brick facades of the townhouses and upper level of Olea reflect the neighbouring homes on Kambrook Rd, allowing the building to sit naturally in the street, while the newly designed laneway interface will increase accessibility and interaction with Olea's surrounds. 

“The design approach for Olea is one of simple elegance, with a clever uses of space, best appliances, superior materials and an awareness of the flows of everyday living,” says Crisante.

CK has designed all of Olea’s spaces with a focus around natural flow, light, and creature comforts.

The interiors are set with an understated colour palette, featuring limestone benchtops and splashbacks, complimented by timber flooring throughout. 

CK Architecture's Associate Director, Helena Barriga says the fixtures and fittings throughout are just some of the features elevating Olea to another level.

“The design and finishes throughout Olea employ creative elements to deliver timeless class, sophistication and luxury,” Barriga said. 

Each home also features two-pack cabinetry with feature timber-work and a choice of rose copper or satin chrome fittings, further elevating the residences.

The $47 million venture still has a mix of one, two and three-bedroom residences still remaining, with construction complete on the Caulfield project.
