FEATURED IN THE LOCAL PROJECT PUBLICATION - ISSUE 05
The Local Project print publication was created to inspire, inform, entertain and engage through exclusively curated content.
Issue Nº5 of The Local Project print publication is the largest to date, with over 380 pages of local architecture and design. As well as new work from the likes of Kennedy Nolan, Edition Office, Tobias Partners, Adam Kane Architects and more, Issue 05 includes Gottlieb House, one of Wood Marsh Architecture’s first residential commissions, completed 30 years ago and unchanged to this day. Kew Residence by John Wardle Architects is also found in this issue. As the home John Wardle has occupied since 1990 and renovated three times, the project is a profound insight into the personal and professional history of one of Melbourne’s most lauded architects.

Established upon pillars that balance abiding aesthetics alongside eminent architectural construction, Melbourne-based development and investment group CADRE has emerged with a strong vision and uncompromising ideology to produce beautiful, innovative and enduring spaces.

CADRE’s Founding Director Christopher Tyas has been immersed in property from a young age. Today, his obvious passion for the many facets of the industry is reflected in CADRE’s comprehensive development portfolio, which spans sectors and scales. Informed by the maxim that form follows function, CADRE’s projects are distinguished by a strong design focus as well as a quality of product endorsed by industry colleagues — and Christopher himself —who live and work within many of the group’s completed spaces. “I live and breathe every development. Working in our commercial spaces and living in our residences. It helps refine the quality, detailing and functionality of every project,” he says.

CADRE’s Founding Director Christopher Tyas has been immersed in property from a young age.

Having derived a reputation for the sensitive enhancement of the communities CADRE builds within, the group is consistently helping future-proof the built landscape of urban Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula and Byron Bay through long-standing collaborations with leading design and construction specialists who share CADRE’s passion and aptitude for turning highly architectural visions into reality.

Christopher equates the group’s consistent ability to produce properties of esteem to a long-standing partnership with Tycorp Constructions. “Tycorp build for us with the passion our clients have come to expect. They understand how to turn our vision into a reality without compromising on quality or the design outcome,” he says. Gipps Street Residences is one such example. The collection of three, four-storey town residences on Melbourne’s tightly held Richmond Hill has been designed by CeraStribley Architecture to integrate the ultimate in inner city luxury living within a locale known for its diversity and cultural verve.

Informed by the maxim that form follows function, CADRE’s projects are distinguished by a strong design focus as well as a quality of product endorsed by industry colleagues — and Christopher himself —who live and work within many of the group’s completed spaces.

“Each residence epitomises aspirational live ability, combined with enduring contemporary design and advanced ESD and technology,” Christopher says. From the striking glass façade and custom steel stairs in the entry to private lifts, cinemas, wine cellars, rooftop pools, and panoramic city views, these are discerning homes that unite aesthetics and functionality. Due for completion in May 2021, Gipps Street Residences are highly intuitive homes for elevated modern living.

CADRE’s commercial portfolio is equally distinguished by developments of considered design and a conscious prioritising of tenant and community enhancement, connectivity and the provision of spatial diversity that lends the buildings to myriad uses. Comprehensively acknowledging functionality as well as holistic workplace practices, branding, robust materials, and contemporary aesthetics, projects such as City Road – an office space of large light-filled floor plates and innovative technological infrastructure – demonstrate that CADRE’s tried and tested formula for creating eminent spaces is consistent across all its work.

“I live and breathe every development. Working in our commercial spaces and living in our residences. It helps refine the quality, detailing and functionality of every project.”

“Ultimately, we aim to enrich neighbourhoods through the provision of real estate solutions that ensure their relevance for years to come,” says Christopher. The group’s multi-faceted understanding of the industry has seen CADRE’s continued success time and time again. “Staying true to what we are most passionate about – creating enduring, high quality offerings through urban renewal and redevelopment – has laid the groundwork for a legacy that we continue to perfect every day.”
