393 Macaulay Rd.Kensington
393 Macaulay Rd is our first project to be delivered via the Assemble Model, located three kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s CBD in Kensington. Designed by Fieldwork, the project comprises 73 apartments over 8 levels.
Identified as one of Resilient Melbourne’s Resilient Communities (an initiative of 100 Resilient Cities – pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation), 393 Macaulay Rd will encourage greater understanding of how to create more connected communities that are both sustainable and financially viable.

393 Macaulay Rd includes a mixture of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments. At the heart of our design is a landscaped, open-air walkway that will bring cross-flow ventilation and dual aspect natural light to our residents’ homes. The entire community will be connected through communal spaces on the upper and ground floors: places for work, eating and leisure, together.
The design will retain and restore the facade of the original heritage building, designed by Art Deco architect Harry A. Norris (also the mastermind behind the iconic Curtain House, Mitchell House, Burnham Beeches and Nicholas Building).
393 Macaulay Rd is located among the wide, tree-lined streets of Kensington, within the industrial fabric of the area. Our site sits between two of Melbourne’s significant waterways with the Moonee Ponds Creek to the east and Maribyrnong River to the west. A century ago, the streets were occupied by drovers, cattle, sheep, wool stores and flour mills. Today, many of these historic warehouses are home to artist studios, workshops and breweries – intermixed with Victorian cottages that skirt the surrounding streets.
