Statement of Information

388 Barkly Street is a thoughtful series of sophisticated, sustainably designed homes situated in Brunswick – on the cusp of the area’s sprawling parklands and outdoor amenities, and just beyond Melbourne’s bustling CBD.

Created in collaboration with local practices DREAMER and Breathe Architecture, the design is guided at every step by principles of ethical architecture, and a desire to craft beautiful, functional homes that facilitate a meaningful connection between residents and nature.

To achieve this vision, our architectural partners experimented with best practices and techniques to deliver a design that’s authentically sustainable and stands proud as an exemplar of design with a conscience. Among the many sustainable initiatives, these homes are gas and fossil-fuel free, powered by 100% green energy, and supported by solar power integrated into the building.
