Streetview: Take an architectural amble down Trevose Crescent, Dunearn
There’s something going on in the quiet, suburban streets of Dunearn. In a pocket of streets enclosed, taco-like, by Trevose Crescent, the landed houses have stepped up their design game. Perhaps the area is home to some little-known architectural fellowship, or it’s more a case of the owners’ one-upmanship. Either way, it’s floating our design-build boat.
Let’s take a walk.
(Or skip across to the leafiest mansion-lined streets in Singapore.)
Trevose Crescent architecture
We’re not just talking about clean lines and Scandinavian-inspired builds, but head-turning, statement architecture of the sort that demands attention and gets your heart racing.
Architects building in the area include DP Architects (of Golden Mile Complex and People’s Park fame), who created the winged mansion below right, and K2LD, who recently finished a trio of detached houses on Narooma Road for Lighthouse Developments.
Key streets in the crescent area include:
- Berrima Road (an inner crescent in its own right)
- Dalkeith Road (there’s a Scottish flavour to the area’s streetnames)
- Narooma Road
- Camborne Road
And on Trevose Crescent itself, these striking landed house are joined by the village-like Glyndebourne condo.
