122 Roseneath St.Clifton Hill
122 Roseneath St is a community of 48 apartments and 18 townhouses, delivered in collaboration with Wulff Projects and Icon Developments. Our mission was to create homes we would want to live in ourselves (in fact, seven of the development team have decided to call 122 Roseneath St home).
In July 2016 we hosted an early registration sales day, which was a great success. 53 of the 66 apartments and townhouses were purchased on this day, and soon after, all remaining properties were sold. We were pleased to see that participation in our design presentations and feedback process meant so many people felt comfortable committing to the project – a testament to the diverse (yet like-minded) community of people who will soon call Roseneath St home sweet home.
122 Roseneath St is a striking piece of architecture that is both respectful and responsive to its context. The veil-like metal balustrade is a nod to the filigree of fence posts and ornate metal work in the surrounding area, and the bones of the Brutalist building that exists on-site have been retained – referencing its raw materiality throughout the design. A hallmark of the project is a pair of elevated linear parks that intercept the buildings and provide a series of shady nooks to relax in. The interiors have been thoughtfully considered – they’re subtle, robust and designed to last the distance, using high quality materials including cork, timber and marble, complemented by fine tiling.
122 Roseneath St offers one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom townhouses, providing enough space for a diverse community of residents at every stage of life. We’ve designed the project around flexible shared spaces including a multi-purpose communal room, a north-facing terrace with a barbeque area and herb gardens, a workshop for messy jobs and a communal laundry.
122 Roseneath St is in a leafy pocket of Clifton Hill, edged in parklands and secluded (but not far) from its busier northern counterparts. It’s the sort of place you’ll find kids playing cricket in the street and neighbours having a cuppa on their verandahs. A former bluestone quarry made way for neat rows of Victorian terraces and tree-lined public gardens, protected today by a suburb-wide heritage overlay. With 122 Roseneath St being one of the last significant landholdings in the area - the Clifton Hill you see today, is the Clifton Hill you’ll see indefinitely.
