The Collection range by Glenvill Homes is a series of thoughtfully designed homes combining quality design and affordability. Each home is planned to suit inner-city urban blocks, mitigating the need for planning or report and consent processes, which expediates the project timeline allowing the build to be completed in just 12 months. While pre-designed, the expansive homes offer flexibility in layout and finish on the basis of Glenvill Homes’ understanding that ‘one size does not fit all.’ As the Collection Display highlights, the range places people at the centre of the design, guiding a personalised and engaging approach to each design. With numerous design options, colour schemes and interior upgrades, the Collection range creates a tailored outcome that reflects the functional needs and aesthetic sensibilities of each client
The contemporary façade creates a striking street-front presence, a formal expression of framed niches with sleek infill glazing, banded with oxidized metal planters.
The Collection Showhome, located in Melbourne’s Bentleigh East, is a celebration of these principles, showcasing Glenvill Homes’ strategic approach to planning and execution of quality craftsmanship. The contemporary façade creates a striking street-front presence, a formal expression of framed niches with sleek infill glazing banded with oxidized metal planters. The remaining architecture and timber-clad garage are comparatively recessive, embracing a quiet, minimalist tone that allows the feature façade to sing.
As a family home, the design offers areas in which to come together and also spaces of retreat, featuring four bedrooms, each with an ensuite, a study, and three living spaces. Open-plan communal spaces provide an appealing atmosphere for entertaining, spilling out to the landscaped garden and pool beyond. The generous dining area provides for large gatherings of family and friends, while the kitchen island bench is an intuitive gathering point. The well-appointed kitchen is complete with Fisher & Paykel premium appliances, including the 600mm built-in oven, 900mm glass cooktop, 900mm rangehood, integrated dishwasher and refrigerator. Fisher & Paykel’s integrated appliances blend elegance with the design to fit seamlessly into the kitchen cabinetry, while a concealed butler’s pantry provides additional storage and preparation space.
Classic engineered stone, timber flooring and textured cabinetry present a refined and contemporary edge for daily life. A dramatic stone plinth stretches the length of the living space, accentuating the generous proportions of the home. The interior is flooded with natural light and softened by sheer drapery, creating a calming feel in communal and private zones alike. Furniture and décor by Trit House create a variety of spatial atmospheres as one explores the home.
Drawing on Glenvill Homes’ extensive experience designing and constructing quality, responsive family homes, the Collection range finds the balance between efficient timelines, quality finishes, considered design and personalisation. With the opening of the Collection Showhome, prospective homeowners can experience these benefits in person by exploring the spaces and learning more about what Glenvill Homes has to offer.
