As Milieu’s new home, this building will be a tangible expression of our values. The essence of Milieu, and what we stand for, will be felt in each detail. Situated moment’s from Smith Street—the cultural and culinary heart of Fitzroy and Collingwood—this building is created in collaboration with international studio Hassell and local practice DesignOffice. As long-time residents of Otter Street, we’re proud to contribute to its streetscape and community. We’ve worked here for seven years—and we look forward to many more.
Hassell is a multidisciplinary design practice with a global reputation for innovative, socially-driven architecture. With significant experience across the UK, Asia and Australia, the studio is well regarded for large scale, complex civic, cultural and public works. In this rare residential project, Hassell has applied that same thoughtful and rigorous approach to Otter Place.
Assembled in two distinct forms, this building reflects and celebrates its local surroundings. Composed in brick, the lower levels are a nod to the masonry of the industrial architecture throughout the area, while the simple, elegant glass form above captures, reflects and amplifies the shape and detailing of neighbouring buildings.
As our sixth project in partnership with DesignOffice, Otter Place is the result of a decade of experimentation and refinement. Guided by an elevated yet functional design response, the interiors are assembled with distinguished materials and complemented by flexible layouts suited to modern living.
Taking cues from the simple yet effective styling of gallery spaces, the interiors are well planned and thoughtfully detailed, utilising smart technology throughout. Lighting has been selected to enhance and support various moods and functions throughout the day. As a considered alternative to traditional downlights, the interiors include a complementary suite of uplights, spotlights and wall lights that make spaces feel intimate, calm and suitable for a variety of purposes. The elegant proportions and window placement are also optimised to receive generous natural light throughout the day.
Situated moments from Smith Street—the cultural and culinary heart of Fitzroy and Collingwood—Otter Place is immersed in Melbourne’s most highly regarded dining precinct. Nestled between Wellington, Victoria, Johnston and Brunswick streets, the area is world-renowned for its unmatched offering of cafes, restaurants, bars and cultural institutions. As long-time residents of Collingwood, we love this neighbourhood for its distinct personality, diverse people and inclusive community.
Mark Simpson and Damien Mulvihill of DesignOffice explore the key project theme of lighting design and how this translates to the everyday experience and general rhythms of life.
Working in partnership for the first time, this project combines Hassell's collaborative, progressive and socially-driven approach to architecture with DesignOffice's empathetic, rigorous and innovative approach to interior design. The result is a building that represents a decade of creative development.
