Camberwell development aims to include birdlife on home features list

Specially chosen plants are expected to lure native birds to the Provenance Camberwell development.

An eastern suburbs project has taken specialist advice to encourage native birdlife into the gardens of its ground-floor apartments.

But a chirpy start to the day won’t come cheap, with prices at the development starting just below $2 million.

Beulah International has tasked landscape architects at Openwork with attracting native birds to the Provenance Camberwell project.

The developer’s executive director, Adelene Teh, said the gardens would also be a “romantic and intimate narrative” and reflect the suburb’s leafy streets.

Leafy views are also set to be part of the development’s upper levels.

“The landscape architecture will create moments of green dissonance in the urban environment, with studies showing that watching garden birds can help reduce a person’s stress levels, anxiety and even depression,” Ms Teh said.

The gardens will feature alongside each of the three-storey development’s ground-floor apartments, dubbed the Botanic collection.

In addition to bringing in birds, the gardens provide a pleasant backdrop for day-to-day life.

Openwork founder Mark Jacques said the ambitious goal meant surrounding the complex with guinea flowers, giant candle banksia, white mint bush and a mix of grevilleas.

“This has been specifically designed to express a textural and thriving native garden, with particular ambition to attracting native honey and nectar eating birds,” he said.

Higher up in the development, lavish kitchens will be the focal point.

Large, U-shaped kitchens and Gaggenau appliances are the focal point on the second level, while the two penthouses on level three are designed to replicate a full-sized house — with up to 292sq m of interior space and double-sided fireplaces.

Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the complex will have a grey masonry grid facade delineated by floor-to-ceiling windows and greenery.

The project will have extensive greenery growing across its facade.

Apartment interiors will feature stone surfaces, open-plan living spaces, freestanding baths and timber floors.
