Illan Samuel and Romy Jackson are responsible for a number of particularly beautiful boutique developments in and around Melbourne that have earned Samuel Property a quiet reputation for the thoughtfully conceived, beautifully designed and artfully crafted.
Edition Toorak is a paradox of elegant restraint and ambitious luxury, in which a single building envelope encompasses multiple, unique homes of varying size and character.
The project comprises an expansive, single-level residence named ‘The Arc’ as well as a two-level home that is at one with its natural context, aptly named ‘The Botanic’, featuring flowing hallways, staircase and sculpted forms inspired by the winding banks of the Yarra River. ‘The Sky’ Residence which occupies the two topmost levels of the building, features all the attributes of a privately commissioned, stately home. Including living zones across two floors, soaring ceilings, fireplaces, a pool and spa, vast terrace and vast windows framing the view in every direction.
