A Natural Elevation

Design response

Design Response

Architects often believe that the land will tell you its story. As such, the design response has been greatly inspired by the nature of the gently rising site and its commanding landscape.

Working with the elevation of the landform and the established and mature landscape surrounds, the architects have created a graceful and timeless form that nestles into the hill and is enveloped by gardens all round. By placing the homes around 2 cores with a courtyard garden between, all apartments enjoy generous views and light filled living on all sides.

Generous setbacks are complemented by expansive landscaped gardens and terraces, enabling each home to feel like a luxurious private residence integrated into the fabric of Lansell Road.

At ground level, residences enjoy private gardens that are terraced along the rising slope, with every home designed to have a strong sense of connection to the outdoors. On the upper levels, generous openings in the facade continue to engage with the expansive landscape surrounds with incredible views of the locale.

Upon entry, The Lansell also takes advantage of the rising terrain by providing ease of access from the boulevard and by car. A sense of welcome and warmth greats you at each lobby, accentuated with dramatic skylights and enhanced by a palette of natural and calming materials.

Early Development (2018)

K2LD Architects have carefully worked with the context and landform to create a building that nestles gently into its surrounds. The stature and form play to the unique strengths and characteristics of the lush and verdant site.

Selected Materiality (2019)

A timeless and sophisticated palette of texture, detail and quality describes the materials that have been selected to complement the iconic nature of The Lansell.

“When something is truly special, it doesn’t need embellishment. ‘The Lansell’ is this collaboration of a special site, with an incredible history and elevation. Our design speaks to this story simply bringing it to life with utmost elegance and reverence.”

Landscape & Gardens

The landscaped garden has been created by Jack Merlo; award-winning designer known for his impeccable designs that elevate outdoor living through principles of beauty, harmony & sustainability.

This expansive landscape for the Lansell has been designed to intrigue all of the senses, addressing not only the aesthetics but providing beauty in fragrance, touch and colour.

The terracing and slope of the site have also presented an opportunity to provide many layers of plantings with taller plants around the perimeter that provide additional screening, whilst a mid-layer and ground cover provides a three-dimensional effect.

A number of significant trees have been retained and together with a careful selection of complimentary plants, the gardens create a mature but precise form, creating generous private outdoor spaces to be appreciated.
