97 Mathoura Road Toorak
After 40 years at the vanguard of Australian design, Carr applies its inimitable expertise to six apartment dwellings at Mathoura Road, Toorak. Partnering with Moda to realise their ambitions for a landmark multi-residential development, Carr has leveraged its complete design service and meticulous research focus to create an exceptional architectural experience.
For Carr, rehearsing how people will move through and inhabit each space is an instrument for envisioning delightful and deeply affecting environments. Handmade Spanish bricks form Mathoura’s tactile façade; brushed-stone details enhance the pleasure of cooking for family or bathing at day’s end. Each apartment’s cruciform, single-level floorplan – equal parts meditative and efficient – reflect the studio’s proficiency at forming compelling rhythms of mass, void, light and shadow, framing views to nature beyond.
Each step within Mathoura is passage deeper into retreat: immersion into family and art; shelter from city life; a place of privacy and joy.
