Balancing connection to the neighbourhood with a sense of seclusion and refuge, Studio Bright’s design for Derby Street embodies a level of care and craft typically reserved for single residential projects. Planned across multiple levels, each apartment is defined by robust and enduring materials, thoughtful layouts and generous spaces. Brick and tile detailing echoes the site’s once-industrial surroundings and integrate the building with the street, while landscaping softens the facade.
Progressive, creative and always evolving, Collingwood has long been one of our favourite neighbourhoods. This project is ideally placed on the periphery of this diverse cultural sphere, moments from both Smith and Gertrude Street's, various parks including Carlton and Fitzroy gardens, and in close proximity to the CBD.
This project was created in partnership with architecture and interior practice Studio Bright, and landscaping by Etched Projects. With both collaborators being Melbourne-based, the project benefits from their deep understanding of the area and its cultural context. Studio Bright’s innate knowledge of residential living is on full display across the buildings 18 dwellings.
