Melbourne needs more houses and better houses. Designed for a standard urban block in Thornbury, this apartment design concept creates ten best-practice 9-star homes. Read more

Nine Star Apartments is a project about community and identity, long term liveability and neighbourliness. Through this commission for a block on St Georges Road, Thornbury, we transform a standard suburban block into ten 9-star homes, increasing urban density, housing quality, diversity and market accessibility while fostering community.

This project is also about context: our design is not just about the streetscape – the public face – but it takes to heart its role to create a positive impact in the urban fabric for not only its inhabitants, but for all adjacent neighbours. Fostering positive engagement with the community – on all levels – is encouraged through its spatial organization and design.
