Multi-page feature in Vogue Living Australia, March/April 2019


"This Melbourne Apartment pays homage to New York City living with a design that achieves a kind of metropolitan intimacy."

..."It was smack-in-the-face bold, but, maybe not such an easy resell? "Who cares?" says Hargrave, decrying the disappointing sameness in contemporary design. "Yes, the overall visual standard is lifting, but you can walk into a Nordic restaurant in Singapore or a New York bar in Sweden and wonder where the hell originality has gone to hide."...

Which Would You Choose? The incredible interior design options at The Muse

... The Muse, designed by Melbourne’s Bruce Henderson Architects, is a collection of just 42 residences on the prestigious corner of Toorak and St Kilda Roads.

Each residence is treated as a separate entity, rather than a mass-build, where completely customised interior design options ensure the living spaces reflect the unique needs, mood and lifestyle of every owner. In that spirit, developer Devitt Property Group engaged not one but three multi-awarded top-tier design firms. Lucky buyers will have the option of choosing between Bruce Henderson Interiors, K.P.D.O and Greg Natale-designed schemes – each customisable at their will – or, they may bring their own preferred designer to the table...

"...surfing the crest of a wave"

July 05, 2016

Grab a sneak peak of our Spring St Penthouse project in the Australian Financial Reviews' profile on our client Greg Hargrave.

'Viewed from the Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne's skyline is an apparently ad hoc agglomeration of elegant Victorian facades and high-rise developments of an elaborate banality. It's hard to imagine that perched atop one of those buildings is a penthouse of most radical allure.'

Head over the the AFR to read more about the project. The project will also be featured in Belle Magazine on sale 15 August 2016.
