Global Influences

Our buyers are worldly. And so are we.

Globally, cities are rapidly transitioning towards higher density living environments. Think New York, Paris, London, Berlin – happy, harmonious apartment-style communities. The rest of us, Australia included, aren’t far behind. We’re true believers in the value of low maintenance living — environmentally, financially and for way of life. The global momentum is growing, and we’re part of it.

We may live and work locally, but we think globally. We create homes that are internationally influenced, and locally sensitive. From the international to the individual, we seek out trends, taking inspiration and influences and apply them to our developments for the benefits of residents. We celebrate new thinking. We celebrate the best thinking.


Pure Originality

Our buyers are discerning. And so are we.

We work closely with Australia’s best architects to develop homes that exceed the highest of expectations. Architects who not only think outside the box, but also in their inject creativity into material selection and, more importantly, what they do with these materials.

We partner with forward-thinking collaborators and suppliers from around the world, whose greatest joy is to push the envelope in their respected fields. From international artists such as Annie-Wili Highfield, and her ‘living animalistic sculptures’, to lighting designers like Alex Earl who pairs the beauty of natural materials with slimline LEDs.

It’s tangible, first and foremost. But it’s also about the intangible — the sense of pride and sense of calm that a beautiful home can offer. It’s the choreography of talented individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses we bring together that allows originality to triumph.


Keeping it Real

Our buyers demand honesty and authenticity. And so do we.

In a marketplace where cost minimisation is all too common, we stand apart. We lift the veil on our development process and deliver to specification, as promised. Completing a project to exacting standards is one of the best parts of the job and we are proud to confess we do this as much for our buyers, as we do for ourselves.
