Idyllically hidden within Balwyn’s elegant streets is the architecturally crafted Soligo. Perfectly at home within a leafy enclave, Soligo residents are offered a life defined by abundance and tranquillity within minutes from everything the sought-after suburb has to offer. 

Coloured by a mesmerising emerald hue and rife with verdant open spaces, Balwyn is most admired for its natural beauty. Here, a sense of serenity is ever-present - the kind that only comes by being surrounded by greenery. 

A recreational paradise, Balwyn encourages a healthy and active lifestyle with an abundance of parks nearby including the breathtaking Maranoa Botanic Gardens, Beckett Park, Balwyn Park and several specialised sporting clubs. Balwyn’s natural beauty is met by a scope of epicurean delights. Whitehorse Road offers world-class restaurants, bars and cafes. Those looking for a scrumptious meal will also be pleased to find the likes of Opus, Snow Pony Cafe and Mr Hendricks only a few minutes from their Soligo doorstep. 

Mirroring the verdant characteristics of Balwyn, Soligo also offers generous outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy at home. High-end landscaping firm, Lisa Ellis Gardens’ lush designs balance the strong articulation of the facade. From the outset, natural elements mingle with the building - drawing harmonious parallels in form and materiality to present a truly unique and memorable building. 

All Soligo residences feature individual gardens crafted by Lisa Ellis. Characterised by the natural depth created by a careful selection of plants, Lisa speaks of these spaces; “the best gardens are those that move you in some way and that’s certainly something we’ve considered when we designed the gardens at Soligo.”

Lisa explains the decision to use trees that are perfectly at home within these well-proportioned spaces; “the planting palette has been carefully curated to ensure year-round structure and also seasonal interest. So we’ve used maples, birches and ornamental pears in different areas to create different stories - it’s not so much about the hedging but using really great structural plants along with more whimsical softer plants for really beautiful, exciting combinations.”

We’ve used white wisteria that’s going to be trained up and over a pergola structure - I can imagine sitting up there with a gin and tonic, watching the sunset in the summer. I think it would be heaven.
