PROJECT: Proton Apartments – Springvale



Project:  Proton Apartments

Location:  799 Princes Highway, Springvale.

DEVELOPER and BUILDER/DESIGNER:  Archie Contes of Neovision

“Modern, smart apartment living”

Bringing the style and flair of the inner city to the suburbs, this totally revamped and renovated complex of 8 apartments is now better than new.  On the cusp of Mulgrave, these apartments are within minutes of great facilities including buses, trains, Monash University and freeway as well as shopping centres at Springvale, Waverley Gardens and Dandenong. Finished with absolutely no concession to quality, these properties are set to grab the immediate attention of owner/ occupiers and investors alike.

With stunning finishes, and architectural flair, this project is another eye grabbing construction from Melbourne Developer, Archie Contes of Neovision.

In collaboration with Archie, Kate Walker of Kate Walker Design helped specify, source and supply hard finishes including stone, tiles and carpet ensuring this project was both a visual and functional success.



Entrance Foyer:  Pietra Grigio marble in 610×305 honed.  A strong, striking statement for the entrance foyer, providing a taste of what the remainder of the development would produce.  A clever move on the developer’s part.



Main Flooring:  Irish Twist solution dyed nylon carpet in Sable.  Practical, yet designer in appearance, this carpet ticked many boxes, including price point.  This material is certainly economical when compared with it’s wool counterparts, but has the added bonus of cleanability and durability.

Springvale 7

Kitchen Bench top and Tiles:  Caesar Stone kitchen bench tops in Osprey. Wall tiles are 400×48 white gloss Subway tiles featuring a grey grout.



Bathroom and Ensuite Tiles:  330×600 glazed porcelain off-white tiles used on floors and walls to create the feeling of space in these small spaces. Vertical shower wall feature comprises Jewels Prata mosaic tiles.  The feature highlighted the vertical space in the room, whilst adding a touch of bling!


There are only 4 apartments left for sale in this exclusive block of 8.  If you are interested in purchasing an apartment, please call Ritesh Saigal on 0425 840 066 of Hocking Stuart Dandenong.

At KWD we look at a project holistically. The sum of all the parts make the whole story work, and it’s this unique approach that sets us apart. The KWD experience provides a streamlined process. We specify, source and supply all hard finishes as well as carpets, rugs, custom furniture and soft furnishings, and manage the procurement, warehousing, freight and quality so every project is worry free. We work closely with interior designers, architects, developers and home-owners, selecting the ideal flooring, designing the perfect joinery and choosing the right paint colours for a wide range of design aesthetics. From finding the perfect paving stones and pool tiles to offering landscaping advice, KWD manages the whole design process. One contact, one invoice and staged deliveries ensure peace of mind. KWD's extensive global network of manufacturers, importers, agents and local wholesalers ensures the selected products are always available. Key supply partners are chosen for their ability to fulfil each project requirement, while our contract negotiation skills will always provide the most outstanding pricing. We often engage architects, draftsmen, lighting designers and builders to complete the design process. We embrace a consultative approach and develop lasting relationships with each and every client. It’s what the KWD team knows and loves. “Design is not a thing we do. It’s our way of life.” Kate Walker
