Bringing a new angle in residential architecture to desirable Bentleigh, Centrepiece is the kind of low-rise project quietly transforming the meaning of premium suburban living.
Created by developer Launch Corporation and designed by leading Bruce Henderson Architects, there’s only one word to describe this luxurious collection of homes – unique. This building has an exterior of true individual character, defined by the angular concrete forms that scream contemporary style.
The modernity of the concrete is balanced by the use of natural timber detailing to the balconies and copious planting, resulting in an addition to Bentleigh’s leafy streets that feels at once classical and new.
Those private balconies are spacious enough for genuine outdoor living, and offer impressive city views at the higher levels. Equally important, the large glazed doors connect the outdoor with the indoor fluidly.
Centrepiece’s interiors are styled around a palette of calming, natural tones, textures and materials that are perfectly suited to the kind of contemporary furnishing we envisage will be a savvy buyer’s choice. This is nicely conveyed in the living areas which are simple and open plan, allowing for maximum lifestyle flexibility.
The kitchen area is clearly designed to be both enjoyable and practical to work in. The built-in stainless steel appliances, marble splash back and modern tapware combine to deliver the functionality that a busy home needs, without compromising on looks. And we love the stylish pendant lighting over the all-important gathering space of the island bench. Extensive storage is all neatly finished for a smooth appearance that tops off this entertainer-friendly space.
Centrepiece takes its approach to luxury seriously, as is evident in the bathrooms. Elegant large tiling and clean lines are detailed with the latest fixtures and finishes. Take the wall mounted timber vanity with an abundance of storage, the contrasting-tiled cavity shelving and the mirrored cabinetry – it all comes together to create a space that’s effortlessly tranquil.
Always fans of a well-appointed communal garden area, we’re pleased to see Launch Corporation has taken a laid-back approach in the collaboration with landscape architects Papworth Davies. The shared garden area features lush planting and a soothing curved raised bed feature that offers more than a nook or two to find your own quiet spot. This is the ideal place to relax with friends or chill out with a book.
Bentleigh is quietly becoming a showcase for what a contemporary urban twist on suburban apartment living looks like. And Centrepiece’s perfect spot on Centre Road serves up all this desirable suburb is renowned for. From cool coffee shops, bakeries and cafes to bars and restaurants, Bentleigh is on the ball. Plus there’s all the essential amenities and grocery options on hand, and the retail heaven of Chadstone Shopping Centre just ten minutes up the road.
With a wide selection of nearby schools, a choice of easy freeway and PT connections to the CBD (just 14km away) and a village lifestyle that’s as cool as it is friendly, the quality of Centrepiece’s homes and surrounds will be tough to match.
