From its prime spot in this burgeoning suburb, Summus is a striking new residential project for Maribyrnong.

Developed by Orion International, Summus comprises three residential elements featuring impeccably designed one, two and three bedroom apartments, terraces and penthouses in a range of sizes and layouts. Design expertise comes courtesy of leading Doig Architects, whose holistic approach to built environments shines here.

Throughout these residences, from the apartments to the dual level terraces, the premium quality of the fixtures and finishes is apparent. In the kitchens there’s bespoke joinery, polished benchtops, timber textures, recessed under-cabinet lighting and tiled detailing, all combined to create a timeless environment of comfort and sophistication. Bosch and Fisher & Paykel appliances simply make mealtimes easier.


Private outdoor terraces are generously proportioned, offering a genuine indoor-outdoor component to your lifestyle and the chance to soak in the views after a busy day.

Bathrooms feature oversized tiling, wall-mounted vanities with a floating Caesarstone benchtop and mirrored cabinetry complemented by feature wood grain shelving, resulting in a calming space in which to start and end your day.

The perfect retreat, bedrooms at Summus are generously appointed with mirrored wardrobes and plush wool blend carpeting that’s both hard-wearing and soft underfoot. Wake up to breathtaking views through the floor to ceiling glazing.


The living options continue beyond the residences with an impressive range of amenities and communal areas. Central to these is the lush garden on an elevated plane. Designed as a sanctuary, this tranquil garden has plenty of seating to share or relax alone beneath the shade of mature trees. It also offers green views from the terraces and apartments.

The Summus private lounge is the place to dine with larger groups. Complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities it’s the spot to book for birthdays, dinner parties and long weekend lunches. Full-length windows and a classic saw tooth ceiling define this light and conservatory-inspired space.


In the secure basement there’s parking for every residence, as well as bicycle bays and storage. Finally, there’s the provision for ground floor retail to ensure the residents and surrounding neighbourhood are naturally connected.
