The traditional concept of luxury often meant plentiful rooms, unused space and sprawling gardens.
Property buyers today are move concerned about decreasing their footprint, and incorporating fine details that make the most of smaller spaces.
Property developer, Milieu, has had this shift in mind with its high-end development, Hertford Street.
Hertford Street is a series of townhouses that have been built upwards rather than outwards, in an attempt to decrease their footprint.
The developers have attempted to incorporate aspects of daily routine into the townhouses’ design. Small details subtly make the most of the spaces, including bespoke joinery, a built-in place for keys, and concealed power outlets and cable management for appliances.
Milieu Property Director Michael McCormack says, “Our focus is on creating spaces of influence that we would want to live in. We’re committed to making timeless abodes with humanity at their core.”
Hertford Street includes five two and three-bed homes, and are located in Melbourne’s Fitzroy. Creative partners are DesignOffice and Loose Leaf.
