Without question, Glenside is one of Adelaide’s most remarkable locations. Behind the towering gums and low bluestone wall, heritage, aesthetics and convenience come together in a majestic botanical setting. Respect for this unique environment has underpinned the design aspects throughout the entire development. This is particularly evident in the architecturally designed town homes.
Here we look at the insights into the architectural vision and sources of inspiration that are shaping this unprecedented address.
“The design of each Glenside town home was inspired by the surroundings of gum tree studded parklands and heritage buildings,” said Koos de Keijzer, of DKO Architects. “The resulting homes provide open-plan, sustainable living areas suitable for a range of different purchasers.”
Carefully analysing the site’s proportions, layout and planning, the architects were very conscious of ensuring harmony between the grand historic buildings and the new streetscapes. But this relationship is not simply limited to the exteriors.
The leafy elegance and sophistication of Adelaide’s eastern suburbs is ingeniously reflected within each home.
“Glenside’s master plan has been heavily influenced by the existing trees and flora on site.”
“A seamless flow between the botanic surrounds and indoor living is key to the development and creation of this community.”
To achieve this, a number of homes feature generous first floor balconies that capture the sweeping views of parkland and vegetation; finishes and palettes that honour their botanic setting; and shade features to deflect intense light and provide
efficient and natural cooling.
From young families to downsizing retirees, the readily adaptable town homes at Glenside offer exceptional choice across a range of designs and floorplans – whether residents are looking for privacy, space or low-maintenance living.
