Beautiful by definition and impossible to ignore, Monument is a landmark building setting a new benchmark for progressive design in Armadale. Rising seven levels and comprising twenty-four park side residences, including two penthouses, Monument is the perfect balance of pragmatism and purity.
Located on Armadale’s prominent north-western corner, Monument’s position and place respects and celebrates the adjacent parkland of Orrong Romanis Reserve. The site's unique triangular shape provides a strong visual identity for residents proud to call it home whilst also offering most levels unimpeded views to the west that extend all the way around to the north and east.
The architecture is distilled into its simplest and most functional form – a beautiful element designed to be appreciated. Featuring hand laid white blockwork in modern ‘stacked form’ arrangements, extending vertically to enhance the building’s sense of height and scale, Monument’s architecture is bold, whilst also feeling uncomplicated and elegant.
The approach to interiors is pared back and subtle. Each residence features a simple material palette with extensive stone, bleached timbers and a playful array of natural textures, complemented by muted, neutral colours. Abundant natural light flows through from either north, west or east. Above all, the interiors are a canvas for resident's lives. Beautiful and textural, they’re designed to create memorable impressions in every moment with residences facing Orrong Romanis Reserve designed to feature deliberately ‘framed views’ of the park, allowing for a connection to nature that few others can claim so conveniently.
The landscape vision is brought to life by Australia’s most awarded landscape architecture practice, Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL), it features a ‘hand-picked, human-centred’ approach inspired by the lush greenery of the adjacent Orrong Romanis Reserve. This sensory experience re-defines the style and sophistication of modern apartment living in a poetic, creative and collaborative way that integrates and respects nature.
Put simply, Monument marks a rare moment in inner-city residential architecture. Sophisticated and considered, it’s for those who genuinely appreciate outstanding design and a statement of confidence for those who like to stand out.
