1188 Malvern Road, Malvern.
Fusing simple, clean and finely detailed design, Malvern Residences pays respect to the stately homes speckled throughout the grand avenues and boulevards that distinguish Stonnington as one of Melbourne’s most covetable realms. Homes considered to the highest degree are the result, intrinsically created to enhance the lives that will play out within.
Malvern Residences is sophisticatedly designed with generous glazing and distinctive fine metal balustrades, accompanied by planter boxes that greatly honour this verdant domain. While the elevated site allows for a strong facade statement, a cobblestoned paved entry is created to warmly welcome residents home through an elaborate panelled and grand ceiling entrance, similar to those found throughout Malvern’s most prestigious residences.

With a career established at Woods Bagot, HOK London and Hassell, Paul is celebrated for an exacting approach to the creation of refined, elegant residences that demonstrate his respect for the long tradition of architecture.

“Underpinning these homes are themes of linear and restrained design, inspired by vertical proportioning and details belonging to the grand mansions and homes found throughout the City of Stonnington.”
Paul Conrad—Conrad Architects
Connecting interiors with the outdoor landscape remained a top priority throughout the design process – natural light fills spaces with high ceilings, maximised as it travels through full-height glazed windows and reflects off bright white walls into joyous spaces.
The way seasons beautifully morph throughout the year is felt within the homes, as generous windows fill spaces with a great deal of natural light and energy. These havens of luxurious rejuvenation incorporate ensuites, walk-in wardrobes, and butler’s pantries in selected apartments.
“Malvern Residences is a project that steers away from trends. Clean form design combines with classic materials to make way for homes distinguished by unique spaces.”
Paul Conrad—Conrad Architects
The interiors are founded on a contemporary high contrast palette, where light oak floors balance charcoal-coloured panelling to create elegant spaces. Pietra Natuca marble was selected as a stylish highlight, used to form the kitchen and bathroom benchtops.
The Design Process
Inspired by European design, Malvern Residences features a collection of natural, high quality finishes that are not only visually lush, but are also beautiful to touch. Classic proportions are executed with a contemporary feel, as the interplay of high contrast interiors is consistent throughout the project. Light renderings and dark stones work in harmony to create stunning residences that provide brilliant canvases for future homeowners to colour with their favourite artworks and most prized possessions.
At the core of the house, the kitchen is treated with an impeccable level of detail featuring a marble island bench that centres the space, with allocated room for seating to promote interaction among residents and their guests. European appliances from Miele and high-end Australian-made tapware from Brodware raise the space to an inspiring setting, ideal for bringing culinary masterpieces to life.

Bedrooms promote an undeniable sense of comfort through a combination of high ceilings, plush carpeting and walk-in robes, cleanly designed with seamless cupboards and lighting to assist you in selecting an outfit for the day.
A marble-topped vanity bench with an undermount basin is found in Malvern Residences’ bathrooms, alongside a white freestanding bath that contrasts with heated towel racks and opulent bronzed tapware.
Malvern glows with one of the most sensational lifestyles in the city; a realm where great taste, fine eateries, bountiful grocers and an abundance of natural havens come together to form the ultimate domain, heralded not only by its residents, but visitors, too. An integral part of the suburb is the array of recreational opportunities it presents in the forms of parks and sporting clubs. So is rejuvenating after whichever path of physical activity you choose to undertake on any given day, afforded by the endless selection of contemporary restaurants and cafes that are peppered along Malvern Road, Glenferrie Road and High Street.
