122 Roseneath St: a testament to community spirit and thoughtful design

At ICON Developments, we are extremely proud to announce the completion of 122 Roseneath St. Located in Melbourne’s Clifton Hill, the new mixed-use development places design, community and social connectivity at its core.

To deliver this project, ICON collaborated with like-minded development partners Wulff Projects and Assemble to employ a community-led design approach that was guided by the shared values of prospective residents, delivering homes that tread lightly on the planet, whilst fostering community spirit at its heart.

Architecturally, the exterior of the building responds to the history of its location, retaining the bones of a Brutalist-style building, which is then softened by veil-like steel balustrades. Timber undersides to the development’s balconies add a warm highlight to the facade.

“At 122 Roseneath St, respect to context and neighbourhood was key throughout the entire design process. On top of that, environmentally sustainable design was important to all of our residents and the wider community,” said Kyle Reeve, senior development manager at ICON Developments.

Subtle but robust, the building’s interior finishes feature cork, timber, marble and engineered stone, complemented by fine tiling and high-quality tapware.

“All the interiors have been designed to last the distance. 122 Roseneath St. demonstrates how a consultative approach to design can achieve strong outcomes,” adds Reeve.

122 Roseneath St. has attracted a diverse yet like-minded group of purchasers to a housing typology shaped by their own preferences and needs.

Residents, which consist of 85 per cent owner-occupiers, have now moved into the development of 47 apartments and 18 townhouses and represent a mix of downsizers, families, single people, and first-home buyers.

At the core of this exciting new development is honest-to-goodness design with a modern, brutalist edge. The building is also designed around communal social areas and workshops, integrated with landscaped respite areas by MALA.

“122 Roseneath St is a design that works, feels right, is kind to the environment, and is sensitive to its surroundings. I’m very proud of what the team has achieved,” Reeve says.
