“A composition of contemporary form, enduring materiality and generous scale, the architecture of Serpells Place has been born out of a commitment to excellence.”

BILLY KAVELLARIS - Director, KUD.

Crafted to command the streetscape whilst honouring its esteemed location, KUD have envisioned a bold and engaging facade design.

Clean lines and robust materials are juxtaposed by the vibrant greenery of the landscape, creating a perfect harmony of built form and natural beauty. Three distinct layers each present an individual design moment, creating a sense of visual depth. To the middle level, the building is softened by fluid curves, imbuing a sculptural quality that is only enhanced by cascading vines. Expansive glazing allows abundant natural light into the homes whilst allowing for a connection to the landscaping and surrounding views.

“No expense was spared for the finishes and fixtures of Serpells Place. Enhanced by expansive living spaces, the level of quality and craftsmanship speaks for itself.”

BILLY KAVELLARIS - Director, KUD.

Whilst designing the interiors, KUD took cues from the facade to create a seamless, free flowing transition between in and out. Favouring soft textures, natural materials and cool tones, the finishes palette has been carefully curated to cultivate a rich and harmonious sensory experience, enhanced by plentiful natural light.

The pièce de résistance is the sophisticated chef’s kitchen, crafted without compromise. An exemplar of modern design, here you’ll find features of everyday luxury including a sleek wine fridge, state-of-the-art appliances, a butler’s pantry and a bar area.

The striking island bench has been designed to emulate the soft curves of the facade, adorned in an elegant and durable grey marble.

Crafting excellence – Q&A with Billy Kavellaris

Billy Kavellaris,
Director, KUD.

Billy Kavellaris is the managing director of KUD, established in 2002. He has led his team of architects to complete exemplary single residential dwellings, high-density residential, public and commercial buildings and major highrise developments. Here, he chats to us about his vision for Serpells Place.

How has the location of Serpells Place inspired the architecture?

Serpells Road is one of the most esteemed streets in Templestowe. It’s wide, filled with trees and has a beautiful link to the past, lined by large acreage properties. We took elements of the area and then metaphorically put them together to create something that is dynamic and engaging. There’s a lot of fluid forms and a nice combination of organic and industrial materials. There’s also beautiful facade articulation, with three layered planes that present individual design moments to create one unified gesture. Also, every residence is huge – they’re essentially home-style residences.

How does the design create a connection to the outdoors?

One of the things Templestowe is renowned for is its rolling hills, abundant landscaping and mature trees. Drawing inspiration from this, we have incorporated large openings to create physical connections to the outdoors, including expansive terraces. There’s also visual connections from living spaces, which look out to the landscaping and surrounding views. And then we have large light courts that allow sunlight and ventilation in through two sides of the residences, which is really quite rare.

How has the language of the architecture been translated within?

We don’t see interiors and exteriors as seperate concepts. Whenever we design a building, there’s a language we explore on the outside, and then we pick up on these cues internally. It might be in the materials, the textures, or a form. The idea is that as you walk in, there’s a language and a story that unfolds in a linear way.

Could you talk us through some of the generous design features that have been incorporated within the interiors?

No expense was spared for the finishes and fixtures of Serpells Place. Paired with expansive living spaces, the level of quality and craftsmanship speaks for itself. For example, you’ve got timber floors, porcelain tiles, natural stone, sophisticated tapware, stunning appliances and integrated fireplaces.

The kitchens are probably bigger than what you’d find in a residential house. They’ve got extensions of bars and their own butler’s pantry as well as heaps of storage. These residences are for people who want spacious, high-quality design with the low maintenance lifestyle of an apartment.

Fireplace

The ultimate luxury, an ethanol fireplace imbues a cosy atmosphere within the open-plan living area whilst effectively and efficiently heating the space. Perfect for those chilly winter months.

Wool Carpets

Delightfully soft underfoot, bedrooms are founded upon plush wool carpets. The grey colour palette, adds sophistication and depth to the space.

Timber Flooring

Oak floors in the colour ‘driftwood’ have been afforded to the open-plan living area of Serpells Place. Low-maintenance and highly-durable, they impart a homely look and feel.

Sophisticated Tapware

The kitchen, bathrooms and laundry are punctuated by sleek yet elegant Tapware, bringing a polished aesthetic to the overall palette.

Minimalist Appliances

Crafted and visually stylish, a suite of V-ZUG designed appliances has been gifted to the kitchens of Serpells Place, revolutionising everyday cooking and cleaning rituals with state-of-the-art technology.

Porcelain Tiles

The bathroom floors and walls are adorned in a high-quality porcelain tile, a hardwearing material with a matte grain texture that brings an organic, tactile quality to the space.

Reeded Glass

The shower door has been appointed with delicate reeded glass, which provides privacy to residents whilst diffusing light and bringing an added layer of texture to the bathroom palette.

Marble Stone

In the colour ‘Arctic White’, which has been chosen for its understated elegance, a light grey marble can be found on the kitchen island bench and splash backs of Serpells Place.

Sophisticated yet comfortable, the open-plan living area is a haven for unwinding, entertaining or spending time with loved ones. Here, soaring windows provide seamless outlooks to the landscaping, encouraging residents to feel as if they are wholly immersed in nature, evoking a wonderful sense of wellbeing.

Sliding doors collapse the boundaries between in and out, allowing the terrace, living, dining and kitchen areas to become one all-encompassing sanctuary. Afforded with timber floorboards, there is a warmth to this space that evokes the essence of a home, complemented by an opulent fireplace for cosy nights in during the colder months of the year.

Cultivating a sense of retreat, immense thought has gone into designing a bathroom that is at once refined, functional and tranquil. Illuminated by dappled light, the materials palette creates a calming and texturally rich aesthetic, comprised of grey marble, sleek tapware, intricate feature tiles, robust floor tiles and delicate reeded glass. Housed within a double vanity, integrated storage ensures you’ll have a place for all your bathroom wares with room to spare. In addition to an expansive shower, a free-standing bathtub is at your beck and call for evenings of self care and pamper, complete with a built-in shelf for your wine glass or cup of tea.

At day’s end, find sanctuary in the spacious and well-appointed master bedroom. Evoking comfort at its most luxurious, wool carpet has been selected for its soft feel and enduring quality. Expansive windows allow natural light to flood the space in abundance, imbuing a sense of serenity whilst affording views to the treetops. Complete with a generous walk-in wardrobe, enjoy storing and organising your clothes with ease.

Inspired by the natural beauty of Templestowe, Serpells Place offers verdant landscaping and serene garden sanctuaries.

“Drawing inspiration from the greenery of Templestowe, the landscaping of Serpells Place creates a sense of sanctuary, allowing residents to feel completely immersed in nature.”

For Serpells Place, John Patrick has designed tranquil garden retreats in the form of ground floor courtyards and spacious terraces. The plant palette has been selected for its ability to flourish throughout the year with very little maintenance required from residents. This creates a sense of privacy – of being encompassed by an oasis of greenery – providing an idyllic backdrop for outdoor entertaining or quiet relaxation. This sense of immersion is enhanced by an overhead canopy on the terraces, draped with cascading vines.
