The Commons – a recently completed boutique apartment building in central Brunswick – a sustainable building setting a new benchmark like no other. Designed and built as Melbourne’s finest and first 8 star energy rated complex.
Perfectly positioned on the first floor and boasting a southern orientation with city views, this amazing apartment blends the charm and character of a period warehouse with the latest modern comforts; all without compromising the genuine environmentally sustainable features.
The façade blends rustic recycled bricks from the original warehouse with the warmth of natural timber – this theme continues within the apartment with lofty raw concrete ceilings, recycled timber floor boards, copper, brass, steel and raw timber blending seamlessly to create a beautiful home.
The entire roof top garden provides a great communal meeting place and incorporates BBQ facilities, individual timber planter boxes to grow your own herbs and veggies and boasts impressive views of Melbourne’s city skyline. The roof top garden and north facing vertical vegetation counters the urban heat island effect and naturally cools the building.
