Doncaster East is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 22 km north-east of Melbourne's Central Business District in the local government area of the City of Manningham. At the 2011 Census, Doncaster East had a population of 27,047.
It is located in the hills between the Koonung Creek and the Mullum Mullum Creek.
The area was originally occupied by the Wurundjeri, Indigenous Australians of the Kulin nation, who spoke variations of the Woiwurrung language group. After European settlement, the area was used for agriculture, predominantly orchards. A small settlement was established in the 1860s, known as Waldau, which was home to many German settlers, who planted the large areas of pine trees that still exist today. German Lane was the original name for George Street, and Bismarck Street the original name for Victoria Street. The names were replaced during the First World War and the present names adopted.
The Post Office opened on 8 August 1887. A Tunstall Square office was open from 1965 until 1990.
Like much of the City of Manningham, Doncaster East was predominantly covered in fruit orchards for some time before subdivision began and it became a contiguous part of Melbourne. Housing estates began to replace orchards in the 1960s, generally along Doncaster Road, in the southern half of the suburb. The north half of the suburb was developed through the 1970s and 1980s, with the last orchard being removed in the 1990s. As the young parents who moved into these estates now retire and move away, many houses from the 60s and 70s are being converted into units. Today land prices continue to rise and it is not uncommon to see medium density residential apartments/units under construction somewhere at any time of the year.
A distinct, 4 level architectural form takes inspiration from its environment using contemporary finishes and richly textured materials to define an extensive range of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom residences.
Fluted concrete and timber finish elements are a natural contrast to metallic copper and rendered surfaces that distinguish 3 building components. At ground level glazed retail spaces are recessed under a solid, cantilevered canopy to provide pedestrian shelter while separating the public level from the main building form. The apartment levels above are set into the design to afford privacy and protection for generously sized balconies.
Referencing Doncaster East’s leafy surrounds, foliage adds a lush green border to the residents' terrace gardens on level 1, a secluded oasis overlooking the local landscape. The upper level caps the building with floating rectangular frames that lighten the form while setting balconies deep within a sensitive modern design.
As a result, the apartments will have excellent energy efficiency with the development achieving a 6.5 star energy rating which will translate to savings on heating and cooling costs. Solar power and rainwater re-use systems will also be installed and will benefit residents as well as the wider community.
All appointments have been chosen for their seamless contribution to the open plan design and the improvement of daily life. Island benches feature in most apartments to increase workspace and enhance entertaining options. Function is carefully concealed behind flush cabinetry revealing fully integrated, top tier Smeg appliances at every turn. Timber grain or natural finish joinery adds warmth while continuing the materiality of the overall design, punctuated by sleek, black stone benchtops, splashbacks, onyx tone tapware and slim line joinery handles for an elegant accent.
Overhead cabinets are finished with matte black, magnetic surfaces to hold recipes in place or for use as a chalkboard for notes. Ambient lighting softens the space with recessed light panels and an option to include a brass style, linear pendant with adjustable led strip for flexible up or down multi-function lighting.
