Yarraville Place regenerates a former industrial site, providing more housing and character to the vibrant Yarraville community


Embracing the context of the site, each row of townhouses has a unique identity, creating varied neighbourhoods within the broader village of the masterplan.


Celebrating the heritage walls

The site was covered with abandoned, derelict factory buildings, amid which stood the original factory onsite – the Melbourne Woollen Mills, constructed in the 1870s. Its battle-scarred bluestone walls became a central part of Yarraville Place, as the offset siting – not quite square to the street – established a more dynamic masterplan that introduced unique spaces to the development.


We designed each row of townhouses to relate to its immediate context, creating diversity and character and imbuing Yarraville Place with a village feel and pedestrian scale. The different typologies cater for a variety of households and the architectural form and materiality gives each row its own identity.
