Grand in scale and rich in character, three entirely unique residences invite you to live South Yarra the way few others can. Shaped by an award-winning team of Hecker Guthrie and Acre, each home is a rare experience of highly individualised design, perfectly positioned on the crest of River Street, moments before it meets the Yarra River.
Tall House is the first residence to be revealed. Also available, The Poolhouse and The Penthouse, are two remarkable homes to complete a prized residential address.
A rare residential design, vertically aligns three very individual homes within a statuesque modern form, distinguished by its impressive scale and refined character. No94 River St is significant in its treatment of each residence as a separate entity, each with its own distinct features and layouts across both indoor and outdoor environments. Architecture and green life are entwined to give the interiors a calming synergy with nature. Cascading vines, lush junctures of foliage and landscaped terraces are specific to the external climate of each level and offer a further layer of separation to highlight the unique qualities of each home.
A harmony of solid, monolithic forms and organic materiality; a confidence of scale and handcrafted texture; a sense of openness and serene sanctuary; these are the hallmarks of Tall House. With 3.3m high ceilings, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, several living areas, 4 open terraces and a garage, Tall House is conceived with the features of a high-end, stand-alone residence with flexible layouts that can be customised. Dramatic volumes allow for the introduction of sculptural objects; a luxurious bath, the fireplace and kitchen island are bespoke pieces, presented in soothing stone. Natural light pours in from every direction, enhanced by thoughtfully placed glass insertions for effortless flow and connectivity The Swiss perfection of V-Zug and German Liebherr appliances complement a streamlined kitchen design that cleverly conceals all storage and working parts to visually extend the living space. Warmed by authentic materials of timber, aged iron, natural fibres and textural wall treatments, Tall House has a serene presence, great privacy and an intuitive sense of home.
Historic, energetic and artistic South Yarra is held in high regard as one of Melbourne’s earliest and wealthiest suburbs. It’s a place with pulse and real history, rich in culture and a strong sense of diversity that gives it an undeniably authentic appeal. At No.94 River St. you’ll experience a lavish South Yarra lifestyle from a peaceful, city-fringe enclave, beside the Yarra River. The address is a pocket of calm at an elevated address, central to South Yarra’s best destinations. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Como Park, the Yarra River’s walking and cycling paths and nearby yoga studios make it convenient to keep a healthy routine. The street is a quiet neighbour to Palace Cinema Como, the fashion-forward style of Chapel St. and the bistros, trattorias and Asian fusion of Toorak Rd. A few steps north and over the ionic Church St. Bridge, the entrepreneurial streets of Cremorne have transformed into Australia’s Silicon Valley. Home to rising stars and big names in technology, creative studios and a new wave of edgy cafes, wine bars and eateries, the neighbourhood adds to a storied precinct, close to everything that counts.
Hecker Guthrie is one of Melbourne’s most celebrated design practices. The exclusive nature of River Street has allowed Hecker Guthrie to treat each apartment as an individual residence, applying a high level of customisation for each space.
Acre is the name behind some of Melbourne’s most beautiful urban gardens. Acre brings a quiet calm to River Street. The landscapes are not an afterthought, but conceived alongside architecture to drive a creative approach and an holistic outcome.
