The very best of Beaufort Street on your doorstep.

In fact, it’s been voted one of Perth’s most walkable suburbs – with places to eat, shop and explore all nearby.

Set back from the main road on quiet Harold Street – right between the Beaufort Street buzz and the peace of Forrest Park, Blackburne saw this sit as an opportunity to bring luxurious one and two bedroom apartments, all architecturally designed to maximise space efficiency.

Monarc demanded all of the design sensitivity and negotiation skill Blackburne could bring to bear.

Constraints of the site included neighbouring heritage buildings and the general low-rise character of the area. This called for a design solution that carefully responded to its context.

Monarc applied high quality architecture and a layering of materials, textures and wall depths to break down the scale and bulk of the building in its heritage surroundings. The design referenced the historical nature of the local neighbourhood in a number of ways.

Clever passive solar design saw the City of Vincent’s Design Advisory Committee (DAC) judge Monarc as representing ‘Design Excellence’, allowing an additional two storeys over the three-storey height limit.

The podium of three levels reduced the scale of the development, with levels 4 and 5 terraced back from the streetscape.

Monarc includes a central courtyard beautifully landscaped both at ground level and vertically on the southern wall of the void. This ‘gro-wall’ was designed to flourish in the northern sunlight.

With sensitivity and innovation, Monarc proved to be both a sales success and a neighbourhood asset.
