Innovative architects with a commitment to holistic, sympathetic design.

Over the past 20 years, CHT Architects have grown to become one of the largest architectural firms in Melbourne by consistently delivering socially and environmentally successful spaces that enrich people’s lives. Their success is deeply rooted in their culture. They recognise as a team, they are multi-dimensional people with a shared passion for design and life. Working collaboratively with their clients, they cover the entire design process from initial concept through to the completed project. Carefully considered design is key to CHT Architects’ rigorous design process. This expands beyond spatial planning and aesthetics – encompassing a holistic response which includes the effects of building design upon its local context, the environment and the physical wellbeing of the building inhabitants. Pairing a unique vision with an innate understanding of the Kew locale, Fellowship is an expression of the firm’s undeniable ability to design homes of excellence.

Fellowship’s meticulous architecture marries form and function with aesthetic elegance. Drawing inspiration from Kew’s historic streetscape, whilst aspiring to bring something fresh to the area, the facade embraces a timeless yet contemporary palette of materials. Pale bricks are punctuated by accents of black, whilst integrated breeze blocks pay homage to the modernist character of the neighbourhood. Featuring strong articulation, the facade’s rectilinear form is softened by cascading vegetation and climbing vines. The generosity of the landscaping allows the building to nestle in seamlessly with its verdant surroundings.

Enveloped in lush greenery, Fellowship’s expansive courtyards have been designed to create a sense of sanctuary and repose. Select homes feature sizeable pools, allowing residents to enjoy a tranquil holiday escape in their very own backyards. The courtyards spill directly out from the living areas, forming indoor-outdoor living environments that cater perfectly to the entertainer’s lifestyle.
