ICD Property is extremely proud to announce its Maple development has won the 2020 Good Design Award for Interior Design.
Maple is a proud joint-venture development between ICD Property, Angle, and Buxton Group. Architecturally designed by Stokes Architects and featuring stunning interiors by Studio You Me, Maple is a five-storey residential complex comprising 51 generously sized apartments and a retail ground floor. Completed in 2016, Maple has won several awards in the architecture and interior design sectors commending its superior design and excellent finishes.
The apartments’ minimalistic interiors were inspired by Scandinavian design and based around diversity, with interiors and the building’s exterior kept simple so residents could tailor their home to correlate with their individual needs and tastes.
To achieve a sense of privacy, beautifully intricate sliding screens were implemented along lower levels. As light changes through the day, the screens reflect light in through the apartments, creating a sense of warmth, while also reflecting it outwards to the street, so anybody passing the building is greeted by its glow.
Maple’s design is dynamic and flexible, taking cues from both art and science, all apartments boast beautiful minimalist interiors. The simplistic form of each apartment appeals to a broad market who can inject their own tastes and habits into their home. Maple’s convenient location only 5km from Melbourne’s CBD and surrounded by a plethora of amenities further positions the residential project as the height of easy living.
Completed to the utmost highest quality, all Maple apartments utilise premium finishes in place of natural stones which are vulnerable to staining. Maximum porcelain tiles were used for kitchen and bathroom joinery. At the time, Maximum panels were rarely used, given their price. However, due to their higher quality, ICD Property decided to pioneer the use of the product in Maple. Since the completion of Maple, Maximum panels have become a much more widely used standard across other apartment developments.
Maple also uses timber boards throughout and the best car-stackers available from German-brand, Klaus. Although costs would’ve been saved by installing carpet in the bedrooms and using a cheaper car-stacking brand, ICD Property believed in delivering high-quality homes that would stand the test of time, ultimately proceeding with timber boards and Klaus for their superior quality.
ICD Property is proud to receive the 2020 Good Design Award for Interior Design with its Maple project and thank all the joint-venture partners and consultants that made this project possible.
