The development team at Contour has recently announced the appointment of Ironside as the project builder. Ironside now joins the industry-leading team alongside Ascui & Co. Architects, MEMLA Landscape Architects, First Urban, Marshall White Projects and MOCS, to bring these elegant Malvern apartments to life. 

Contour offers a boutique collection of sculpted homes in the signature Ascui & Co. curves. “There is an elegant softness to the building - we’ve avoided rigidity and sharp lines. The building curves around the corner site, following the natural path of the land,” says Gonzalo Ascui, Director of Ascui & Co. Architects. 

Gonzalo explains that the “sinuous wave-like elements tracing the form of the building, sweeping from one face to the other in a flowing gesture,” gives definition to balconies, slabs and large glazed windows. This also creates both outlook and privacy within each apartment. 


The interiors at Contour reflect the immaculate sophistication of the architectural facade and this is evident from the moment residents enter their new home. Ascui & Co. has featured contoured edges at the apartment entrance and on the island bench - evoking an instant air of continuity, where elements of the exterior have been translated within to enhance the unique language of the design. 

Coming home is a truly memorable experience at Contour; each apartment entrance is marked by a robust stone plinth with a built-in drawer. Backlit for dramatic effect, the curved mirror creates an air of elegance. Follow the distinct Herringbone floorboards down the hallway and into the elegant living areas. 

Contour’s living room is as spacious as it is intimate. Defined by a meticulous palette of luxurious yet neutral finishes, this space offers an elegant blank slate ready for residents to inject their personalities into. In winter, the fireplace provides both warmth and a cosy ambience while in the summer, the floor-to-ceiling, double glazed sliding doors open up to the terrace to create a seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle. 

Truly the heart of the home, Contour’s kitchen is anchored by a solid quartzite stone island bench that instantly draws the eye. Again, Ascui & Co. reinforce the curved elements introduced in the facade. Full-height joinery with a wood grain texture has been paired with elegant fluted glass cabinetry, while a suite of premium Gaggenau appliances offer enhanced functionality and longevity.

Three Bedroom apartments start from $1,647,500 and construction will commence in July.   


At Contour, Ascui & Co. have envisioned a design that gives back to its residents - representing an effortless and elevated living experience. Now with the appointment of builder Ironside, the grand vision is not far from completion. Click here to enquire about Ascui & Co.’s Contour.
