Woven into Richmond’s eclectic urban fabric, MATTONE brings a sense of refined modernity to the rich diversity of its surroundings. The collection of 10 architecturally designed residences have been developed in like-minded collaboration with MAArchitects to gesture the heritage of their streetscape while articulating the rarity of their location within a quiet urban pocket with its own park.
Sustainability has many interpretations to many different people. At CADRE we like to consider it as our opportunity to do better. A responsibility that does not end but an evolving process of continual improvement. We strive for our developments to stand the test of time and provide continual environmental, social and economic benefits far in excess of the status quo

MATTONE For the Future
Tempering the rectilinear architectural form are large deep set windows with operable timber battens overlooking landscaping of controlled luxury by Florian Wild. Reflecting the nearby pocket park, a layered approach to garden design leverages lightweight fences which encourage vertical growth, seasonal planting for evolving year-round beauty, and pergolas which provide privacy within large, private front gardens.
All residences are unified by their filtering of light, expansive ceiling heights and the considered orientation of terraces, courtyards, windows and balconies to simultaneously coax natural light, frame views, activate communal thoroughfares and maintain privacy.
“ARCHITECTURE STARTS WHEN YOU CAREFULLY PUT TWO BRICKS TOGETHER. THERE IT BEGINS.”
MATTONE rests at the heart of one of Melbourne’s most tightly held enclaves. Its immediacy to central Melbourne is belied by the locale’s atmosphere of established quietude and natural beauty. Stately mature tree’s line the surrounding streets, alluding through the majesty of their size to the heritage narrative and grassroots history of the area. Quaint Victorian terrace houses, meticulously maintained, rub shoulders with industrial shells resurrected for contemporary urban living. Binding these is a meandering mapping of green spaces, from nearby neighbourhood pocket parks to the vast native expanse of the Main Yarra Trail where the soundtrack of birdsong, gently flowing water and rustling leaves drowns out the sound of the arterials and commercial precincts which step into relevance as needed only a stones throw away.
