Macaulay Rd, Kensington

Architect: Fieldwork 2018, Developer Assemble Communities

Designed by Fieldwork, 393 Macaulay Rd will comprise of studio one, two- and three-bedroom homes over eight levels. Residents will be connected through communal spaces on the upper and ground floors: places for work, eating and leisure, together. A mixed-use ground floor encourages connection between residents and the neighbourhood, with retail space tenancies informed by the needs and desires of the local community.

The existing building was originally built in 1928 as a wool store and has since had many lives over the years, including being used as a bakery and the Kensington Community High School. Most recently, the building has been home to Dex Audio, one of the last CD, DVD and cassette manufacturers in Australia, which is now expanding to bigger premises. Nearby, the 100-year-old Younghusband wool store, currently a space for local creative businesses and makers, is to be rejuvenated over the next five years to into a new cultural hub for the area.
