Set among generous gardens and art installations, this collection of six modern buildings will establish a natural sense of community through thoughtful design, landscaping and hospitality. Tailored for owner-occupiers, these homes will be designed and built to the highest standards of liveability.
Beyond the residential offering, the precinct will benefit the wider area through retention of established trees, provision of deep soil planting, and construction of a new public park along with upgrades to the streetscape and pathways.
The design process is informed by extensive research and ongoing consultation with community groups and key stakeholders, a collaborative process that’s shaping authentic outcomes to ensure this precinct will be a positive contribution to the area that enriches the social fabric of Elsternwick.
Steeped in history, 8 Gordon Street was originally the spiritual and traditional land of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. Then, in the mid-19th Century, colonialism saw the land transformed into the European style gardens of Rippon Lea Estate. A century later, when television was introduced to the nation, the site was repurposed into an industrial production facility—ABC Studios. For decades 8 Gordon Street thrived as a place to tell stories about modern Australian life, but since the ABC’s departure in 2017 the site has been vacant.
No longer fit for purpose, and with the nation’s broadcaster having moved on, there’s now an opportunity to reimagine and redefine what 8 Gordon Street can be. Through our well researched approach to precinct design, landscaping, community engagement and arts programs, we intend to honour the complex and varied history of this culturally significant site.
