In their Prime: Jolson brings a perfect blend of permanence and craftsmanship to Como Toorak

 

Prime Edition is dedicated to developing buildings of lasting and meaningful value. We surround ourselves with the best collaborators to ensure we continuously deliver homes of uncompromised quality.

To realise our vision for our newly launched project, Como, we partnered with renowned architecture and design practice, Jolson, who shares our mission and deep understanding of one of Melbourne’s most established suburbs, Toorak.

Led by founder and principal Stephen Jolson and director Mat Wright, Jolson has brought the same rigour, empathy, and craftsmanship of its private home architecture to the design of the seventeen residences at Como. Their holistic approach to architecture and interiors has delivered a built response that is intelligent, sculptural, and perfectly of its place on Bruce Street.

“Spaces need to feel balanced and calm. That’s why our approach is based upon careful consideration of the inherent dialogue between the built form, surface and texture, foliage and nature, and the way sunlight and shadow layer spaces to create a sense of home.

“All these elements are fundamental in conveying a sense of permanence and craftsmanship, with a design language that balances solidity and lightness,” said Wright.

To reflect the character of Toorak, including the architecturally detailed stately Como House and Garden and Royal South Yarra Tennis Club, Jolson designed Como’s exterior with solid hand-made bricks and incorporated curved glazing panels and gently rounded edges. Inside the building, a sense of natural materiality awaits, including timber, stone, and earthy tones to create a warm and inviting ambience throughout.

Envisaged with a connection to nature at the forefront, the seventeen residences at Como were designed to be immersed in lush greenery, contributing to the building’s surroundings on the cusp of Como Park.

Integrated planters and balcony thresholds on the east, north, and west facades of the building work with the natural path of the sun to provide shade during summer and solar gain in winter.

“Many of us are drawn to the beauty of nature. We wanted to create a design that allowed natural light to flood the spaces, forming a connection to the outdoors while maintaining privacy from the street below,” said Wright.

“By building strong connections with our clients, we become sensitive to the nuances of how people live and engage with their homes to create spaces that truly reflect their personalities and lifestyles.

“The result reflects our commitment to delivering homes of unsurpassed luxury that are unique to the people who live in them.”
