Situated at 44-54 Kambrook Road, Caulfield North the design brief for Olea Residence was to provide an architectural solution which complemented both the existing neighbourhood character and street presence, whilst delivering an individual and luxurious architectural addition to the site. Appealing to a wide range of potential buyers, Olea is comprised of various sized townhouses and apartments; 7 townhouses and 54 one, two and three bedroom apartments surrounding a pivotal central courtyard.

The central courtyard at the heart of the project creates a sense of privacy providing a peaceful green outlook. Basking in a beautiful Northern aspect and an inviting landscape design, enabling community life to be enjoyed in tranquillity. These generous areas of greenery give the apartments a seamless indoor outdoor transition, a highly sort after feature in modern design.

The design is broken down into zoned interfaces to minimise the impact of residential development to the existing neighbourhood character. Townhouses are positioned on the street interface to blend into the streetscape. This maintains the village feel of the area by defining smaller sections of the buildings frontage and creating a sense of individual components which have their own street access and sense of address. The laneway interface is designed to increase accessibility and interact with the neighbouring development, becoming an extension of the already established laneway network.
