The facade of HO-ST was designed to have a modern aesthetic appeal and yet still work with the vernacular of the surrounding architecture. This delicate balance is achieved through the use of robust, quality materials that complement the broader traditional context of Brunswick. In particular, the development features elements of brickwork, paying homage to the suburb’s rich history which included brick-making.

The apartment’s interior, with its intuitive and considered living spaces, invites endless possibilities for indulgent living. The refined industrial visual of the open-plan living room is crafted through textured and quality finishes that coalesce with timber applications and details of blue and copper.

Full-height glass sliding doors run across the length of the kitchen, dining and living space, illuminating the apartment naturally and framing gorgeous city views. Step through the doors onto your private balcony and you’ll experience a tranquil sense of escapism, surrounded by a charming composition of oak and Portugal cork panelling. The natural elements work to soften the external industrial features, such as exposed concrete ceilings and steel structures, creating a stylish equilibrium.
