24 Sustainably Designed Homes - Construction Commenced
With a carefully articulated and patterned façade, The Rochester's six-storeys comprise only 24 contemporary homes. Employing carefully considered, amenity-focused design principles, the building embraces sustainability that is both social and environmental.
On a historic corner located between Brunswick St & Smith St, the building captures a perfect north - east aspect over Rochester St Fitzroy. At the heart of the building, tiered interior gardens grow up in a series of light wells and cascade down from gardens above, providing lush, naturally lit corridors.
Sustainability is at the heart of The Rochester's design. Floor plates have been arranged with a unique alternating pattern of balconies and internal spaces so that the building’s shape itself provides protection from the harsh summer sun, sheltering each home while still enjoying a bright, airy feel. Screens, awnings and blinds form integral elements of the structure and façade, providing highly functional flexibility to choose light or shade as required.
Building systems contribute significantly to the excellent NatHERS energy rating, with photovoltaic panels on the roof and hydronic heating to all homes providing sumptuous winter warmth and direct hot water. Car spaces come embedded with technology to allow for electric charging stations, offering flexibility for the future.
Discover perfect inner city living with stunning 1, 2 & 3 bedroom luxury homes in a building that fulfils a comprehensive vision of sustainability earning an outstanding 7+ star NatHERS rating. Designed by award-winning architecture studio Ola in collaboration with Breathe Architecture, The Rochester interiors have a striking blend of sumptuous marble, chevron patterned flooring and terrazzo. Each element draws cultural inspiration from the surrounding neighbourhood, delivering homes of exceptional quality, durability and style.
