Situated near the banks of the Yarra River, this project represented an opportunity to redefine modern urban living. Our design was informed by the rich industrial heritage of the site, paying homage to the paper mills that once flourished in this area.
The Traditional Custodians of this land
Gross Floor Area
These three level townhouses with individual roof terraces were designed with the young professional and those with families in mind. The façade features a combination of concrete blade-like walls separating the townhouses, combined with curvaceous balconies clad in a number of industrial finishes.
Bricks are arranged vertically across the façade, with the protruding curved forms providing nooks inside. The tubular structures serve as a reminder of the site’s paper mill heritage, while creating unique floorplans and flexible living spaces.
“We are known for our creative and bespoke architectural responses.”

A story told through materiality
Curvaceous balconies clad in rusted Corton steel and Blackened steel cladding.
Planter boxes and vertical hanging gardens by ASPECT allow for the individual expression of each townhouse.
