“The walls sep­a­rat­ing the units are all struc­tural con­crete, but none of the walls within are. Be­cause of this, own­ers are free to make floor plan changes in the fu­ture.” - Martin Kohn, co-founder, Kohn Sh­nier Ar­chi­tects

The Plant Queen St W & Dover­court Rd Com­ple­tion: Sum­mer 2020 From: $329,900 (39 square me­tres)

Quick Take: Start with ex­tra-wide units ori­ented to max­i­mize sun ex­po­sure for herb gar­dens, stir in a spa­cious eat-in kitchen and add a pinch of pantry stor­age. Ev­ery de­tail of this taste­ful mid-rise from Cu­rated Prop­er­ties and Wind­mill De­vel­op­ment Group has been cooked up to make it easy to pre­pare healthy, home­grown meals.

From the Street: Fo­liage run­ning up the build­ing makes a lush state­ment, but the 10-storey struc­ture’s en­ve­lope car­ries that aes­thetic into a full-fledged en­vi­ron­men­tal ethos as en­vi­sioned by Kohn Sh­nier Ar­chi­tects and SMV Ar­chi­tects. Storm wa­ter is col­lected in an on-site cis­tern for ir­ri­ga­tion, while geo­ther­mal heat­ing and low-voc ma­te­ri­als fur­ther bol­ster the build­ing’s eco cred.

Mov­ing In: In­te­ri­ors by +tong­tong em­brace a natural, earthy pal­ette. Op­tional up­grades in the kitchen in­clude a sculp­tural metal pot rack holder that can be in­stalled above the is­land. And for Iron Chef-themed par­ties, a com­mu­nal can­teen is at­tached to the out­door bar­be­cue area. the­p­lan­tqueen­west.com
