Situated in the heart of the leafy streets of Toorak, 65 Lansell Rd has been designed to balance an architectural language of contemporary sophistication with the established character of its neighbours. The proposal references classical architectural proportions to bring with it, a sense of authority and balance which sees the building at home amongst the established architecture of the area. This traditional organization of the facade, is then articulated with minimal contemporary detailing in order to allow the materiality of the building to take center stage.

Taking cues from the natural tones found in the adjacent Yarra River, clay coloured bricks with a colour matched grout have been proposed as the primary material. The bricks are to be laid in a way that forms a rough texture, in order to balance the strict formal arrangement of the design.

The entrance to the building also references the Yarra, which takes people from the street down a sweeping curved pathway, through a landscaped garden before arriving at the entrance lobby.

By using curved journeys through the building a sense of withdrawal and reveal is created. This language was inspired by the way the river constantly reveals new views and pockets of space as you follow the curves of its banks. Finally the proposal has been designed to allow for a series of stepping terraces to its southern boundary, enabling planting to cover much of the buildings profile. This not only allows an easy relationship with its neighbours, but provides an inviting view of planting to its occupants.
