Located in south-east Melbourne, the proposed Carinish Rd development represents a high quality, mixed-use project with three key components: an office building with retail offerings, multiple residential buildings and a landscaped, public realm throughout.
The large site will provide an engaging neighbourhood experience while a generous public square will form a gateway to the precinct. The aim is to create an inner suburban hub with thriving commercial, retail and community activity.
This project aims to make a positive contribution to and engage with the emerging character of Clayton, particularly along the elevated rail corridor. The proposal demonstrates a clarity in its architectural expression and composition which considers the urban context and user experience at the ground level.
Taking design cues from the local suburban vernacular, the buildings exhibit shades of local terracotta, olives and cream, while corrugated concretes echo the iron sheet roofs beyond.
This is the first apartment complex to be delivered under an innovative build to rent development model between Housing Choices Australia and Assemble Communities.
