Dare Property Group is proud to present Society House, a series of sculptural, consciously designed homes in the heart of Fitzroy. With architecture by SJB and interiors by Travis Walton, these considered apartments combine sophisticated design, communal amenity and built-in sustainability to cultivate an enriched way of life in Melbourne’s most vibrant suburb.
Merging principles of art and design, the building is defined by a monolithic yet highly sculptural form. It embraces varying layers of concrete as an ode to purity, simplicity and permanence. Lush greenery has been woven seamlessly into the facade to instil a strong connection to nature whilst enabling the building to meld with the tree-lined character of Napier Street.
Fostering community connection, local Indigenous artist Yhonnie Scarce has been commissioned to create an installation at the entryway of the building. Scarce is a Kokatha and Nukunu woman from South Australia, with works held in some of Australia’s most important institutions. Rooted in family history, her interdisciplinary practice often references the on-going effects of colonisation on Aboriginal people.
Sustainability is of the essence at Society House, equipped with a range of innovative design features and initiatives including renewable energy, natural ventilation, low impact building materials and abundant integrated landscaping and beyond. Communal amenities will encourage a sense of community amongst residents as well as a convenient, inner-urban lifestyle.
A cultural hub, Fitzroy is home to Australia’s most dynamic arts and live music scenes along with world-class restaurants, cutting-edge boutiques, vibrant cafes and lively community parks. Perfectly nestled between Brunswick and Smith Street, Society House offers an engaging village lifestyle with the very best of Melbourne close at hand.
