Darling Road Townhouses, located in the prestigious Southeast suburb of Malvern East, occupy a corner site. The townhouses were designed to be set back from the street to provide generous space for vegetation and mature trees to grow, critical in mitigating the urban heat island effect.

The design employed the use of materiality inspired by the local heritage context, referencing federation houses and Californian bungalows in the use of brown and red brick, and bluestone taken from the paved laneway adjacent to the site. Gentle brick curves form the cohesive front and help separate each townhouse casting willowy shadows over the ground floor. The townhouses follow the slope of the site working with the gradient of Manning Road.
