Established Melbourne suburb, Hawthorn East will be home to a new breed of bold residential architecture.


A series of brass ribbons wraps around the entire building, contrasting with dark textured plates which appear to hold the ribbons in place.


Throughout the entire building there is a sense of seamless connection and a lustre which will create an address of distinction.


We’ve taken our cues from the form and materiality of brass, and that’s resulted in a balance between elegance and playfulness.


The brass ribbons give the building an identity, but they also have a practical function by providing privacy to the apartment terraces and allowing light into each living space through tiny perforations.
