Drake Developments, in collaboration with renowned Nicholas Murray Architects, are delivering a collection of boutique homes in West Melbourne. Available in a variety of floorplans and layouts customisable for any homeowner, Tailor Residences sets the bar for luxury living higher than ever before.
The building has been designed to meld cohesively with the architectural fabric of the streetscape and the result is a subtly unique façade. Utilising an industrial palette of materials, a distinct ‘hit and miss’ brick pattern paired with recessed voids creates a textured layer of dimension.
Comprising two buildings, Tailor features one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as three-storey townhouses. Inside, a series of intelligent design features lends these homes a ‘tailor made’ quality.
From matte black joinery and striking stone benchtops to ample storage and spacious floorplans, it’s clear the development team has not held back in terms of opulence. High ceilings and expansive windows allow for an abundance of sunlight to suffuse the living areas while offering views out over Melbourne’s CBD.
Warm timber cabinetry provides integrated storage in the bathrooms, while a gorgeous freestanding bathtub takes centre stage. Ensuites connect to oversized master bedrooms where adjoining terraces are the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee and catch up on social feeds.
Special attention has been paid to ensure these homes achieve a 6-Star energy rating. Deliberately placed open-air atriums mean there’s optimal airflow in addition to lending each home an individual entryway. Recycled water tanks are included throughout the development to minimise water usage, reduce stormwater runoff and to decrease energy consumption. Additionally, in an effort to encourage sustainable transport habits, there is also on-site bicycle parking.
With the city just minutes away, Tailor places residents in the centre of connected and convenient West Melbourne. The suburb has been given a 92% Walk Score and a 99% Transit Score and is only 8 minutes away from the city by train and 22 minutes on foot.
Thanks to an attractive combination of a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood and supreme walkability, West Melbourne has become a highly sought-after inner-city suburb. Melbourne’s oldest garden, Flagstaff is minutes away and the North Melbourne Football Club and leafy Gardiner Reserve are nearby. Interspersing these abundant green spaces, a mix of trendy cafés, restaurants, and bars keeps the locals sated.
