Buchan’s Former Studio Site Reimagined as Residential Apartments

Melbourne, Australia, April 02, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Planning approval was recently granted for a major residential apartment scheme on The Buchan Group’s former studio site at 133 Rosslyn Street, West Melbourne. The new development paves the way for an exemplary, highly-considered architectural form within the industrial fabric of the area.

The 9 storey complex, for Starland Pacific Group, delivered in conjunction with Development and Project Managers, PDS Group, will comprise 165 apartments and 150 basement carpark spaces.

The Buchan Group continues to play a major role in the evolving story of our former office site, proudly providing Architectural and Interior Design services for the development.

“Our aim is to create an exciting and cohesive new residential development that brings a positive addition to the emerging architecture of West Melbourne,” said Principal – Head of Delivery, Nick Nigro. “We are thrilled that the project has received Planning Approval and look forward to its progress.”

The proposed scheme sensitively responds to the surrounding urban grain and context of the area. A robust selection of materials has been carefully considered to provide a sense of depth and grain, capturing the essence of the site’s industrial context and imbuing its historical DNA in the design.

The façade provides a sense of movement through the glimmering reflection of sunlight filtered through the prominent Rosslyn Street tree scape. It is envisaged the building will transfigure and modulate, reflecting the colour, textures and hues of the changing seasons, expressed through a detailed collage of colour tones and reflective glazing.

The sale of apartments is set to commence in April 2016, with construction expected to begin later this year.
