Situated on a spacious 2.3ha site, the precinct will offer 177 thoughtfully designed residences, ranging from one to four bedrooms, including 14 townhouses. An array of amenities, including a gym, pools, BBQ areas, co-working space and a private dining room, have been incorporated into the design to foster a sense of community within the precinct.

Designed by FK, 91 Lytton Road seamlessly integrates into the neighbourhood with a thoughtful approach that respects the existing character. Established landscaping and the site’s natural topography will gracefully conceal five buildings, ensuring the density respects the neighbourhood’s scale. Townhouses lining Lytton Road will feature a fine-grain palette of neutral brick, textured concrete, and timber-look aluminium accents, creating a harmonious streetscape. Curvilinear forms across the soffit and roofline of the townhouses will create a unique residential identity and street address.

Nestled behind the townhouses, three open-air corridor apartment buildings, ranging from four to six storeys, strategically ascend the site’s natural slope. Their warm, earthy tones echo the townhouse palette, creating a cohesive visual language throughout the precinct. Lush greenery envelops these buildings, offering both privacy and a tranquil, sanctuary-like atmosphere for residents. Here, expansive terraces blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living, inviting residents to connect with the surrounding landscape.

A diverse range of residences was vital to the design, ensuring the apartments and townhouses cater to an array of occupants, from young professionals to families and downsizers. Each generously scaled, nearly every home features considered details, including a butler’s pantry, a multipurpose room, and double bathroom basins.
