Surrounded by an abundance of high quality local amenities, the beautifully crafted development features 38 luxuriously spacious apartments designed by renowned architects MAP. The development takes beautiful, luxury apartment lifestyle a step further by integrating sustainable living within its infrastructure. 

Thoughtful eco-conscious design features including rainwater tanks, efficient water fixtures, effective natural ventilation and low emission finishes have ensured Custom boasts a 6 star NatHERS rating. 

“Sustainability is now so much more than a buzz word to to off-the-plan purchasers. A project’s sustainability values are often the difference between a buyer proceeding with an apartment or townhouse, or continuing their property search.”

Leonard Teplin, Marshall White Projects

Locally sourced materials not only add to the lower environmental impact of the development, it also adds further focus on quality, durability and style of the palette. Similarly, the cross-flow ventilation serves as natural temperature control while also assisting in creating homes with a sense of immense space. Beautiful floor-to-ceiling, double glazed windows allow natural light into the property, lowering energy needs throughout the day without compromising on insulation.

These, and many more, eco-conscious decisions during the design and build of Custom ensures residents save 30% on their monthly energy costs - further lowering the environmental footprint of the development. Custom also has NBN available and connected - an additional assurance for residents who require a high-level of connectivity from the day they move in. 


Situated in close proximity to an abundance of retail and transportation options, as well as parklands and beaches, Custom is ideally located at the centre of a popular and rapidly growing bayside suburb. 

From the streetscape, Custom’s facade brings a sophisticated yet inviting addition to the locale; combining textured bricks with accents of concrete and steel, the material palette is authentic and visually rich. In addition to having practical benefits for residents, balconies also serve as a key design feature on the facade. The spacious balconies punctuate the exterior to create a unique form for the building - defined by strong linearity while being softened by flourishes of lush greenery. 

The carefully crafted building is not only notable for being aesthetically pleasing, it also hides a plethora of eco-conscious design solutions beneath the surface - proof that a sustainable apartment development doesn’t have to compromise on style. 

Custom qualifies for the $15,000 HomeBuilder grant, which is due to expire in March 2021 - making now the ideal time to take advantage of this offer. For more information on living a lifestyle that doesn’t compromise on style or sustainability, click here.
