Brunswick’s latest sustainable residential offering – Two Eleven Sydney Road – has been expertly designed by Excelon Projects in collaboration with Six Degrees Architects.
Inspired by aspects of Brunswick’s character-filled heritage, the 21 spacious, light-filled apartments have been designed in order to combine the best of contemporary design techniques with timeless architectural choices. The retained, low-rise heritage façade on Sydney Road is a nod to this rich past, and the new construction that houses the generously sized 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments incorporates the latest in sustainability and modern design.
Open-air lanes, light-filled walkways and a stunning rooftop terrace have been thoughtfully articulated to encourage residents to come together, creating and nurturing a sense of true community in the building – a rarity in new residential developments. This focus on community has been influenced by the buzzing culture that surrounds Two Eleven Sydney Road on all sides, meaning that residents will be connected to one of Melbourne’s most energised inner-city suburbs.
Sustainability is a fundamental pillar to Two Eleven Sydney Road, which is evident as every stage of this ambition development. Starting at the selection of materials, through to the design and lay-out of interior spaces in order to maximise on natural light and air-flow. By utilising solar energy generation, water harvesting and storage, the enlightened and passionate team behind Two Eleven Sydney Road have achieved the highest level of efficiency and sustainability of any recent development in this highly sought-after area.
Thanks to this keen focus, the building is designed and engineered to achieve an impressive 7.5-star NatHERS rating.
The materials selected to create Two Eleven Sydney Road were chosen for their durability and reliability, as well as for how they effortlessly enhance the aesthetics of the building. From the stylish and contemporary exposed concrete ceilings, to the timber floors in each apartment, every choice has been made with both functionality and beauty in mind. The exterior of the development will be brought to life by an abundance of plant life, further demonstrating the connection to nature and the natural environment surrounding Two Eleven Sydney Road.
In order to further highlight a connection with Brunswick – one of Melbourne’s trendiest and highly sought-after inner-suburbs, Six Degrees Architects collaborated with a thoughtfully curated collection of Melbourne based makers, designers, and crafts-people. This includes locally sourced fixtures from Wood Melbourne, hand-blown light fittings by Mark Douglass and unique typography by Stephen Banham.
Two Eleven Sydney Road is surrounded by some of Melbourne’s very best cafés, restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as a plethora of public transport options – including a train station just a 6 minute walk away and a tram stop at your doorstep. If you’d rather walk, Two Eleven Sydney Road is perfectly positioned to allow you to eliminate the need for a car – further emphasising its sustainable attributes.
