One Wilson Ave, Brunswick
One Wilson Ave is inspired by the varied and enduring textures of Brunswick. Paying homage to Neometro's history and Milieu's development approach, while referencing the area's brutalist post-war buildings, the façade is defined by a bold and singular material: concrete. Its use ensures that the building will age gracefully and develop a unique character as the years go by. Having lived locally for more than a decade, architect Quino Holland has drawn on his deep understanding of Brunswick's materiality—resulting in a meticulously designed building that feels right at home in the Jewell Station precinct.
Interiors are simple, well-planned spaces underscored by generous amounts of natural light. Each of the homes revolves around DesignOffice's deep understanding of spatiality, with select homes focusing on the considered placement of multipurpose rooms—connected areas with large sliding doors that allow residents to create dynamic layouts to suit their individual needs, and ensure free-flowing movement between shared and private spaces. Flexibility, accessibility, environmentally conscious design, and a seamless transition to the streetscape below operate in conjunction to create a sustainable vertical community.
