If you’ve passed through Hawthorn recently, you’ve probably noticed the leaves of Maple’s namesake tree hovering above Burwood Rd – a gleeful wave from the third story terrace it resides within. If it wasn’t the tree capturing your attention, it certainly would have been the hypnotic glow of the sun kissed bronze facade doing its signature glittering dance in the afternoon light.
Ahead of schedule and surpassing any and all expectations we could have had, we couldn’t be more proud to announce that our little lady, Miss Maple, is now complete and ready to welcome her new tenants as of Wednesday.
As the final nails were hammered, tiles polished and planter boxes toiled, we were able to take a step back from the months of being immersed in this incredible project and relish in a moment of adoration. What a dizzying joy to be able to stand within the room of what was at one point a mere conversational musing or scribble on a page and be speechless. Every turn in these homes brings with it a new element of surprise and delight. From the jaw dropping cement ceiling, to the expansive balconies extending from living areas that capture some truly iconic views, to the light and airy bathrooms thoughtfully curated so that every detail exudes a tangible pleasure; each iteration of these homes sparks a new theme of conversation.
It’s incredibly rare for a project to warrant the same level of enthusiasm throughout its entire journey. Yet, from fanciful conceptualising to meticulous drafting, energetic campaigning to the contagious excitement of those choosing to call Maple home, and then, finally, the thrill of watching those initial visions come to life, every step of this project has brought with it the same air of pure delight.
So, from ANGLE, we would love nothing more than to give our kudos to the inimitable team who helped bring Miss Maple to life. What a pack of absolute masters you all are: ICD Property, Buxton Group, Simon Stokes Architects, The Stella Collective and the countless ladies and gents who tirelessly played their part in this incredible journey, you are all absolute superstars!
