Paying homage to the area’s paper mill heritage, YarraBend, and notably the Artisan Precinct, epitomises good design – form and function, beauty and brains. Takings cues from Melbourne’s most iconic suburbs, the Precinct is contemporary yet distinctive, layering metalwork, natural materials and green facades to bold effect.

Crafted with an urban edge, the Artisan Precinct is true to its name with an extensive offering of cafes, bars, restaurants, providores, delis and gourmet grocers. The Hub at the precinct’s heart will offer exclusive access to high-tech co-working spaces and the kind of leisure amenities you’d find in a 5-star resort.
Delight is in the details. Even from a distance, the urban-meets-heritage feel of Culinary House is striking. Urban yet edgy, the layers of metalwork and textured materials create a bold, crafted aesthetic. But move a little closer and you can appreciate the craft behind the little details. Circular cut-outs in the layered metal facade ensure there’s a different view from every apartment. The facade frames views looking east towards the Artisan Park or west towards a leafy garden and The Hub. Its unique geometry partially veils full height windows, offering glimpses of illuminated spaces within.
Go inside, and you’ll see just how appropriate the Artisan name is, with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship in evidence wherever you turn. Internally, the palettes reference the site’s rich industrial heritage through the use of innovative materials and ideas for modern living.
