393 Macaulay Rd. is Assemble’s first project to be delivered under the innovative housing model Assemble Futures – allowing residents to rent their home for five years while saving to buy it. Designed by Fieldwork, the project comprises 73 apartments over 8 levels, its located three kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s CBD in Kensington. Currently under construction, residents are due to move in late 2021.
The design will retain and restore the facade of the original heritage building, designed by Art Deco architect Harry A. Norris (also the mastermind behind the iconic Curtain House, Mitchell House, Burnham Beeches and Nicholas Building). 393 Macaulay Rd. is located among the wide, tree-lined streets of Kensington, within the industrial fabric of the area. Our site sits between two of Melbourne’s significant waterways with the Moonee Ponds Creek to the east and Maribyrnong River to the west.
