The Grange Residences are perched above the expansive Kedron Brook creek corridor and delivers high quality townhome living within five kilometres of the CBD. Lat27 in conjunction with developer JGL Properties and architect Arkhefield delivered creative and uniquely site responsive design outcomes to maximise the visual and physical benefits of direct proximity to the Kedron Brook.

A range of townhome product was created to address the needs of a diverse demographic, from families to couples of all ages, seeking a high quality living experience. The townhomes enjoy direct access to the Kedron Brook recreational pathway system which encourages outdoor living and active transport opportunities. The townhomes facing the brook enjoy constant breezes and a garden courtyard that visually extends down the vegetated bank to the creek and linear parkland. The development enjoys a pedestrian friendly environment with clearly defined pedestrian pathways that connect the street to every front door. Each residence is generous in its provision of greenery to the internal streetscape through a series of arbours, street trees and dense shrub and understorey planting.  Each home also has a garden courtyard that provides an extension to the ground level living and kitchen areas. The courtyards are framed with arbours and climbers and lined with dense foliage to provide a green outlook and intimate outdoor living space.

A central garden common provides a small park for the development which is complemented by the endless park that forms the eastern boundary. Mature existing trees were retained and complemented by extensive street tree planting throughout the development. Every opportunity was maximised to provide tree canopy for shade, vertical scale and framing of views. The landscape design delivered significant impact to further enhance the crafted architectural response, together which offer a truly unique and high quality sub-tropical living experience.
