From award-winning Rob Mills Architecture & Interiors (RMA), Hampden by RMA is a bespoke collection of nine private three-bedroom residences in the coveted suburb of Armadale. This exclusive new luxury address boasts a handcrafted brick façade, with large, arched windows.

Hampden by RMA draws inspiration from the silhouette of Rome’s Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, a midcentury take on the ancient Colosseum which today functions as the Fendi headquarters. With composition and materiality centred on this striking design and durability, the house-sized apartments at Hampden will stand the test of time as a Melbourne residential icon for generations to come.

The design team have let the structural prowess, from the handcrafted brick façade to the divine arched windows and stunning high ceilings, speak for itself at Hampden. The palette that unfolds throughout each residence is deliberately subdued, exploring earthy tones that elegantly relate to the sunlight and the structure of the building’s bricked arches.

Two of the three superbly sized bedrooms in each residence feature an ensuite and built-in robes. The third, master bedroom suite, boasts a master ensuite and larger walk-in robe. Each apartment features an expansive, open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area. Select Hampden residences feature a designated study space.
