Located in the highly coveted suburb of Armadale is a mesmerising residential building wrapped in white and akin to a sculptural form, aptly named Monument. Envisioned by K2LD Architects and brought to life by Chapter Group and JV Partner SHC Group, Monument stands proudly as Melbourne’s newest legacy residential development and a testament to Armadale’s architectural evolution. 

Paying homage to contemporary architecture, Monument presents itself as a striking angular form clad in white masonry. The unique blockwork is reminiscent of the modern ‘stacked form’ arrangements, drawing sightlines vertically to visually enhance the structure’s scale. Created for the most discerning art lover, Monument appears to be carefully carved from a mass and enhanced only with articulated bronze screening - the result is uncomplicated and elegant, offering purchasers an artfully crafted, timeless home. 


Situated opposite the picturesque Orrong Romanis Park, the facade at Monument visualises the development’s unique relationship with its highly sought after sight. Here, the design dialogue offers framed views for ‘perspective passageways’ to the park and Melbourne city skyline. The considered aspects ensure residents can be immersed in the views from the east, through to the north and west, while the never to be built out views offer assurance that Monument will remain home to some of the best views in the future. 

As part of the arrival experience, landscape designers TCL offers a human centred, sensory experience with a curated selection of foliage. Offering a reflection of the parkland, the expansive gardens offer a sense of calm and tranquility, while the private lawn and fire pit provides residents their own private oasis to reconnect with nature. Similarly, a natural meadow covers the rooftop on level four - enhancing local biodiversity with a beautifully verdant landscape while optimising the structure’s energy efficiency.


 Guided by form and functionality, the architecturally designed interiors at Monument are grounded on principles of elevated living. The curated combination of comfort, ease and style are presented through sophistication without pretension. Drenched in an abundance of natural light and punctuated by an extensive array of natural textures - including bleached oak floorboards underfoot, natural stone, a neutral colour palette and a cosy fireplace - these homes offer a luxuriant yet authentic ‘real’ design that improves day-to-day living .

Kitchens feature showstopping prestigious Italian system DADA, and statement sculptural island benches ranging from 3.2m to 4m dressed elegantly in European natural stone. Custom stone sinks continue the aesthetic defined by the benchtops while white resin splashbacks punctuate the zone. In line with offering opulence with increased liveability, Monument features high end Gaggenau appliances, Liebherr fridges, and Hansgrohe tap ware. 

Bedrooms are adorned with Molteni joinery while bathrooms are crafted as private retreats; fully clad in natural stone and a sleek, curved shower feature. Similarly, the powder room is home to a spectacular large-scale bronze mirror and a natural stone vanity. 

Monument is a true architectural masterpiece akin to a striking object of art. Both inside and outside, these residences comprise a beautiful element designed to be appreciated and destined to raise the benchmark for progressive design.
