Designed by Bruce Henderson Architecture & Interiors, ESSENCE comprises 22 residences combining contemporary design and refined livability.
Situated on Black Street, Brighton, ESSENCE homes are split over two distinct wings with a central courtyard creating a street presence that aligns with the natural rhythm of the neighborhood and are comprised of two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two car parks, while the four penthouses have three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three car parks.
Graham Morrison, managing director of Bruce Henderson Architects, said the amenities on offer are reminiscent of a 6-star hotel. Located below the ground floor, the exclusive private resident space offers sophisticated amenities that bring something extra to apartment living, including a wine cellar, resident lounge, private dining room , kitchenette, pool table, and private gym and yoga studio.
“The idea behind the design was to be able to provide people with big houses so they could downsize while still having the facilities they are used to. In some cases, they’ve never experienced this level of comfort before,” says Morrison.
The luxurious experience continues in the car park with amenities such as electric vehicle charging stations, pet grooming facilities, bike storage, golf club lockers and a car wash station, making ESSENCE living unrivaled in terms of convenience.
“Lifestyles need to incorporate more than just living space; they need interesting and livable spaces, landscapes and buildings. The large open living spaces offer exclusive and thoughtful design results with many important details,” says Morrison.
Interiors are designed to celebrate and embrace open space while the clean, neutral palette provides the perfect backdrop for modern elements such as natural stone, quality millwork, fittings, lighting and branded appliances. .
Kervale sales manager Michael Ryan said the vision behind the project was to offer a future of prestige living more in line with local buyers’ wish lists.
“ESSENCE’s residential amenities are unlike anything Brighton has seen; they are considered and useful and will contribute to a community-oriented living experience and allow a different way of living in a smaller space.
“The types of amenities on offer are luxuries often reserved for larger homes, meaning buyers can downsize without compromising their lifestyle, rather than they can upscale it.”
ESSENCE is currently under construction with apartments starting at $1.495 million.
