15 Thompson St Kensington
15 Thompson St is the second project to be delivered under the Assemble Model, located three kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s CBD in Kensington. Applications are closed but you can join the waitlist here. Designed by Hayball Architects with landscaping by Oculus, 15 Thompson St comprises of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom homes across eight levels.
15 Thompson St is designed to encourage informal neighbourly connections; from open-air walkways, stepped entries and the parcel room with cool store, to an Amsterdam-inspired ramped bike storage facility, lending library and workshop.
Designed to improve with age
Living spaces are designed for durability, functionality and longevity. Free of embellishment, we build beautiful, enduring homes using high-quality fixtures and fittings. We cultivate a strong connection between the indoors and out with plenty of natural light and cross-flow ventilation throughout. The interior design of each apartment forms a subtle backdrop to everyday life, so you can make yourself at home.
We have worked closely with our Environmental Sustainable Design (ESD) consultant, Atelier Ten, to ensure sustainability is embedded throughout the design. 15 Thompson St has been designed in alignment to Green Star 5 Star objectives and will meet a 7.5 star average NatHERS rating across the development. 15 Thompson St is a fully electric building – this means it will not be reliant on fossil fuel in the long-term. Key to the sustainability credentials of the building are passive design features including natural cross-flow ventilation from the open-air walkways, and the cooling benefits of the exposed concrete ceilings.
Enjoy communal spaces
The spaces and amenities at 15 Thompson St are an extension of your home. Book communal rooms for social events and personal uses, or coordinate resident clubs and announcements through our on-site Community Manager and mobile app.
Ground floor communal rooms
For when you’ve invited one too many for dinner or want to throw a party to remember: the ground floor communal rooms are our version of a scout hall. The perfect place to come together for private events, work or play.
We love everything about Kensington
From its village like charm to the friendly locals; cafes, restaurants and bars. It has old town feeling with only 3km proximity to the city. If you’ve not yet visited Kensington, take the day and stroll through the area. Catch the train and jump off two stops from the city centre. Better yet, grab your bike and take a ride along the Merri Creek trail.
Stop off for Mexican at La Tortilleria and a cold drink or two at The Hardimans Hotel. Take some time to explore the Younghusband village, a regenerated wool store that now houses myriad creative businesses. If the kids are restless check out The Venny solar playground and JJ Holland Park. All on your future doorstep.
