45 Orrong Road, Elsternwick Twelve spacious and light filled residences


Inspired by the timeless architectural works of Frank Lloyd Wright, 45 Orrong Road is defined by elegant horizontal lines, generous terraces and use of classic, quality materials. With just twelve residences, architect and development partner Ewert Leaf have retained full control of their vision.

Taking cues from the architecture of Elsternwick and having worked extensively in heritage areas, the development team at 45 Orrong Road deftly straddles that fine line between modern design and respect for the past.


Time and Place

Walking the streets of Elsternwick, you can see exactly what makes its architecture so enduring; its historic buildings have been designed and built with great care by skilled craftsmen. 45 Orrong Road sits comfortably in these surroundings, continuing Elsternwick’s design and building traditions.

Today, 45 Orrong Road is in a great position, away from the noise of the main road but still close enough to the action of Elsternwick Village, with all the local amenity and transport links that affords.

Timeless by Design

From the Federation and Queen Anne architectural styles, through to Art Deco and post-war designs, for over 150 years brickwork has been a constant in the fabric of Elsternwick. At 45 Orrong Road we’ve used charcoal brick in hit-and-miss screens at street level, and on the building façade itself, utilising local bricklaying skills that have remained unchanged for centuries. Combined with off-form concrete, natural timbers and standing-seam metal cladding, modern and traditional materials come together in a sensitive addition to the suburb’s architectural heritage.

Light-filled interiors

Timeless Materials

We create long-lasting homes for our buyers, using classic, sophisticated palettes — like terrazzo and oak parquetry, partnered with brushed chrome and antique finishes. In the kitchens traditional details like routed-timber cabinetry and natural stone marry seamlessly with more modern touches — such as sheet metal wrapping the ends of the island benches in bronze and black stainless steel. Throughout each apartment, every product has been carefully selected to last and to avoid modern trends that quickly date, inviting each buyer to bring their lifetime collections and treasured belongings with them.

Everlasting Light

With its corner location on a north-facing site, 45 Orrong Road is swathed in natural light. To maximise this unique advantage, we’ve designed floor-to-ceiling windows in living spaces, where light fills the apartments. We’ve also provided a full-height void into the main lobby area, where the light floods in, and a timber-clad ceiling draws you in, flowing seamlessly up into the void. As well as the abundant natural light, we’ve developed a lighting plan with Canadian lighting designer Matthew McCormick, carefully balancing light throughout the day.

Future-proofed landscaping

We take the outside spaces just as seriously as the inside. Working with the renowned John Patrick Landscape Architects we’ve designed gardens that offer abundant greenery from day one. These gardens are tough, they’re going to thrive, and they’ll keep looking great. They’re future-proofed.

You know it, we know it.
