Construction is well underway at South Yarra's luxury Stanhope by Kincrest, with completion slated before the year is out.

Stanhope, a collection of just eight residences on Stanhope Court just off Toorak Road, is set for completion in November by the luxury apartment developer Kincrest.

Kincrest director Tom Howgate said he wanted to change the way developments were being designed and sold in the inner south.

"From the park to the finishes inside the apartments – we are selling something new, creative and timeless, yet still – so South Yarra," Howgate says.

The development has interiors by the Swedish designer Lotta Agaton, the European designer of the year in 2019 who has featured in The New York Times.

Agaton says that she wanted to create a light and contemporary feeling with a soft version of Scandinavian minimalism where natural materials are in focus.

"We have chosen high quality solid wooden floors and handpicked a sand coloured stone. Both materials feel modern but will age naturally to remain timeless in their expression.

Project Architect Tehla Clarke says their vision was to create a timeless piece of architecture for South Yarra.

"To achieve this we designed details with subtle references to classical Architecture, with a restrained use of materials”

The eight home-style apartments each have three metre ceilings and kitchens with marble, Miele and timber veneer.
