Masterpiece takes FORM at Port CoogeeRead more
Construction has commenced on the highly anticipated 50-apartment marina-side complex designed by one of Western Australia’s most reputed Architects in collaboration with the cutting- edge style of boutique property company, Match.
Form is the creation of Geoff Warn of Donaldson & Warn, who is renowned for ‘looking outside the square’ and creating designs that really stand out.
It is located just 50metres from Port Coogee marina and waterfront, and comprises both single and double level, one, two and three bedroom apartments set within a striking façade that makes the most of the surrounds.
Match Managing Director, Mr Lloyd Clark, said the property is already over 70% sold out and believes that anyone who appreciate innovations within the context of a floor plan have found it hard to go back to a conventional boxed-in apartment.
“True to its name, Form makes a statement through creative use of space, light and features. It moves away from the traditional single level apartment to introduce diversity into the environment,” he says.
“The exterior is striking, which speaks directly to the local community and a demand for signature residences. Inside, however, restraint is shown with clean, white and timeless interiors. This is intentionally designed to create a blank canvas for buyers to individualise with furniture and artwork.
Geoff Warn has worked with Match on two previous developments; the highly acclaimed ‘Summer’ and ‘Tempo’ in South Beach. He says Form is blessed with excellent amenity, including a public landscaped space directly opposite and the beach very close, which was used as inspiration to realise the most architectural and lifestyle benefits available.
“Form employs a block formation in response to the site’s geometry and orientation. We have strived to maximise the views and benefits of orientation, and the “blocks” make for a strong clear form that is further distinguished by material differences to give the total development a definite sense of scale,” he said.
“The block arrangement also results in two main entries, and several benefits emanate from a single design strategy.”
Most apartments are north facing with many offer sweeping ocean views. As with all Match developments, each apartment incorporates signature large balconies and high ceilings – features that have become synonymous with the company and its designs.
“Geoff Warn and Match share a common design philosophy and extended design vision that ultimately looks to enhance the streetscapes, particularly in popular beachside suburbs. However, Form is ultimately about the end user and nothing has been spared to create an environment for individuals to put their stamp on and make it their own,” Mr Clark continues.
“Not everyone can picture a completed project from plans, so the construction phase is a great time for us to showcase our vision. We anticipate Form will attract increased community attention once it starts taking shape and people realise how unique it really is. It is truly a rare piece of work”
All apartments feature Bosch appliances and Rogerseller tap ware. Prices start from $375,000 for one-bedroom apartments, and $575,000 for two-bedroom apartments.
Completion of construction is scheduled for early 2018.

Secret Harbour Land Becomes BoutiqueRead more
The company behind some of Western Australia’s most celebrated residential architecture has arrived in Secret Harbour to launch its first boutique-style land division and take advantage of the area’s established community infrastructure and coastal amenity.
M/Land is part of the M/Group of companies, which specialises in the identification and development of niche land development opportunities across the State.
M/Group has played a pivotal role in revitalising environments such as Mount Lawley, South Fremantle and Maylands and in its first foray into land development, M/Land has secured one of the last remaining strategically located parcels of land in Secret Harbour.
Director of M/Land, Mr John Wroth, said the company was attracted to the site due to its coastal location between the two major centres of Rockingham and Mandurah. He said the land is being developed as an affordable land release that doesn’t carry the risk often associated with early entry into large master-planned communities.
“New land owners can sometimes wait years for the introduction of community infrastructure to support their lifestyle, such as schools and shopping centres. However, Secret Harbour is already a sought after coastal village with an established community of over 10,000 people,” he said.
“That means there is absolutely no wait for schools, shopping centres, health services, and transport links. It even has an award winning golf course, newly refurbished surf club and the local shopping centre undergoing a $53 million transformation to include Aldi and Coles and specialty shops, which is expected to generate around 250 new jobs. This is in addition to the existing Woolworths and is almost unheard within new land developments.”
M/Land is releasing stage one of the 67-lot estate named “Hamelin Park”, which includes 25 lots sized between 311sq.m and 510 sq.m. It is located within walking distance to the shops, two minutes from the beach and seven minutes from the public transport, with the Perth commuting time of just 45 minutes.
Mr Wroth expects a great deal of interest will be attracted from the local first homebuyers.
“We have priced land at Hamelin Park well below the Secret Harbour average, so it really stacks up as a great opportunity for young people to get a foothold in a well-established coastal property market. Its release follows a decade of low interest rates, first home buyer grants and incredible builder incentives – all contributing to Perth’s most affordable property investment periods in decades,” Mr Wroth continued.
“Our development also includes a number of clever design features that create distinction and align it to the standards and style that our parent company has become known for. I am confidant Hamelin Park will tick all the boxes for local property buyers and emerge as a fantastic investment.”
Hamelin Park is surrounded by interconnected parkland, walking paths, and will feature a landscaped park as a centerpiece.
Hamelin Park home sites start from $179,000. House and land packages starting from $365,000, which does not include the First Home Buyers grant. Titles for stage one of the development are scheduled to be issued in April 2017.
