Project sales launch: The Henderson in Glen Iris

In July 1850, Captain Thomas Henderson sailed into Hobsons Bay aboard the smartest vessel the new colony had ever seen. Revered by fellow seafarers, the ‘Iris’ was built of the best materials and radiated elegance with her polished mahogany.

Captain Henderson settled on the banks of Gardiners Creek, establishing the suburb of Glen iris and naming it in homage to his graceful ship.

Quality is designed into the heart of The Henderson. It heralds a return to yesteryear, when craftsmanship and meticulous construction were highly valued. The Henderson offers an elegant and diverse range of living in the heart of Melbourne’s most revered inner south-east.

The Henderson contains two adjacent three-level buildings joined by a large internal common courtyard and entrance for apartments.

Designed by Orbit Architecture with interiors by Arkee Creative and landscaping by John Patrick, The Henderson comprises 38 apartments and town homes in total with 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom configurations on offer.

Featuring spacious rooms where light is drawn in through floor to ceiling windows, passive climate control has been considered in the design and apartments are orientated and designed to maximise comfort and enjoyment.

"We have carefully fused the convenience of apartment living with the familiar and valued features of a stand-alone house" says David Hockley, architect and director of Orbit Architecture.

The Henderson has been designed to integrate neatly into the charming streets of Glen Iris that have been shaped by generations of avid gardeners.

Drawing architectural inspiration from the Art Deco heritage of Glen Iris, the facade's strong horizontal lines, the subtle curves of its corners, textural interest, feature brickwork and timber detailing is a tribute to the suburb's existing architect character.

The Henderson's residents will enjoy rich public transport access with the route 72 tram and brand new Gardiner station interchange located a stone's throw away from the building on Burke Road.

On top of the significant public transport investment, the recently completed Burke Road level crossing removal project has removed a significant traffic bottleneck and residents will also enjoy access to high-quality cycling infrastructure with the nearby Gardiner's creek trail.

Boutique shopping, dining and cafes on High Street in Glen Iris and Malvern & Tooronga Roads in Malvern are both located an easy 10 minute walk from the building and the 72 tram can whisk The Henderson residents away to Camberwell junction, Hawksburn village and Chapel Street in 8, 11 and 15 minutes respectively.

The Henderson: ground floor living and courtyard

There is no compromise on workmanship; it is of a standard that one would have found in more exacting times, when pride in the craft was paramount and more important than time or money saved.

"The design of each dwelling in The Henderson was arrived at by careful consideration of how people would inhabit the space" says architect David Hockley.

The Henderson: kitchen

The Henderson interiors will include wide-board oak floors and pale walls in the living room, kitchens will be full-sized - created for people who love to cook - and they are seamlessly designed to blend into in to the living area yet have all the amenity a family or entertainer needs.

"We have taken the time to design in the small details that give the apartments the finish you would expect in a home designed by an architect" says Paula bowen, interior designer with Arkee Creative.

The Henderson: internal courtyard

There is a strong emphasis on planting a canopy of trees and centering the building around gardens. John Patrick, landscape architect and host of ABC's Gardening Australia has designed an outdoor oasis at The Henderson which references the surrounding neighbourhood, which is famous for its tree-lined streets and lush gardens.

Living in an apartment does not mean compromising on outdoor living and The Henderson will include shared gardens and large terraces as well as private courtyards with tiered gardens.

Prices range from $465,000 to $1,350,000.
