Standing proudly in the highly coveted suburb of Armadale is a mesmerising residential building wrapped in white. Aptly named Monument, the facade is as striking as a work of art. The unique blockwork is reminiscent of the modern ‘stacked form’ arrangements and is set to become an architectural legacy in Armadale.
The development rises seven spectacular levels and presents an exclusive collection of only 24 parkside residences - including two ultra-luxe penthouses. Envisioned by K2LD Architects and brought to life by Chapter Group and SHC Group, Monument has piqued the interest of some of Melbourne’s most discerning buyers looking to live large.
An undeniable air of sophistication
Monument makes its mark on its residents and visitors from the moment they arrive. Entering the development is an experience unlike any other; landscape designer TCL offers a human-centred, sensory experience with a curated selection of foliage. The design reflects the neighbouring Orrong Romanis Park with an expansive garden, private lawn and fire pit. Similarly, a natural meadow covers the rooftop on level four - enhancing the local biodiversity while optimising the structure’s energy efficiency.
Inside, all Monument homes feature larger-than-average floor plans designed to follow principles of form and functionality. As a result, the thoughtful combination of comfort, ease and style are presented with an undeniable air of sophistication. Full-height double-glazed windows drench the interiors in natural light and showcase an extensive array of natural textures - including bleached oak floorboards, natural stone, a neutral colour palette and a cosy fireplace.
Kitchens feature statement sculptural island benches ranging from 3.2m to 4m dressed in the finest European natural stone. Custom stone sinks continue the aesthetic defined by the benchtops while white resin splash-backs punctuate the zone. In line with offering opulence and enhanced liveability, Monument features high-end Gaggenau appliances, Liebherr fridges and Hansgrohe tapware.
Although all Monument homes are offered in elegantly appointed architectural interiors, the development team understands the need for homes to reflect their occupants. Purchasers are offered the option of added customisability, with an opportunity to tailor their homes to best suit their lifestyles - whether this means an extra bedroom, study, a private swimming pool, or a stunning rooftop terrace is entirely up to the buyer.
Live large at Monument
Across the nation, buyers are now seeking larger-than-average apartments. Compared to most other countries, Australians have demonstrated a penchant for living large. A recent Commsec report indicates the average new apartment floor space is now at an 11-year high, up 0.4% over the year. “There have been shifting trends in the sizes and styles of homes over the past decade and Covid-19 has been throwing another element in the mix,” says Craig James, Chief Economist at Commsec. With floorplans ranging between 165sqm to a spectacularly generous 732sqm, Monument is certainly checking the boxes for buyers.
In line with the report, Monument is witnessing a rising demand for its larger residences - the rare combination of generous proportions, opulence and location proving to be an unmissable opportunity for many.
