Brunswick East by Milieu is designed for hospitality. A collaboration with Fieldwork Architects and Foolscap Studio, the project encapsulates the warmth and charm synonymous with the area’s much-loved dining scene and cultural flair. The result is a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments with distinctive interiors that blur the boundary between preparation and entertaining—spaces designed to enhance the experience of home and to complement the gesture of hosting.

Location Dégustation
Bar Idda

The site is nestled in the heart of Melbourne’s inner north, on the corner of Lygon and Edward Street, Brunswick East. The area’s rich history of Asian, Middle Eastern and European culture ensures a diverse offering of enchanting cuisines and varying modes of dining, from casual local favourites to more formal degustation. This culinary heritage has evolved into a mélange of flavours just minutes from the residence.

Architecture by Fieldwork

Designed with the soul of its surroundings in mind, the façade offers glimpses into history around every corner. These moments of local context not only elevate the level of design, they highlight an architectural sensibility that reflects the cultural past, present and future of the area.

Research, reference and reflection

Quino Holland’s thoughtful and rigorous work spans the globe, but he has a particular affinity with Brunswick East; a resident for more than a decade, he has an unparalleled sense of what makes the area so special and brings to the project years of observation and research.

Interiors by Foolscap

Foolscap Studio’s distinguished portfolio demonstrates an uncanny knack for utilising space and functionality to create memorable interiors. Highly experienced in the hospitality sector, this project draws on the studio’s deep understanding of hosting rituals; sophisticated, streamlined and consistent with the best practices of hospitality, these interiors make shared moments sing.

Homes for Hospitality

The homes are designed with family and friends in mind, with each detail considered to enhance the experience of hosting loved ones. This core principle influences the design at every step, resulting in layouts that offer innumerable possibilities for entertaining. Whether it’s close friends over for dinner, or family brunch on Sunday morning, these homes are tailored to ensure hosting is always a simple pleasure.

1. Environmental Impact

A commitment to passive efficiency, carbon free operation, and a healthy indoor environment has resulted in a relatively low environmental impact.
2. Building Design & Construction

Responsive and sympathetic to it's surrounds, yet forward looking in it's approach, the architecture and interiors utilise high-quality materials to age gracefully.
3. Accessibility

With every occupant in mind, the building and homes within are designed to be highly accessible and suit a wide variety of individual needs.
4. Community Benefit

Drawing on the local milieu, the building will be home to a not-for-profit community cooking school to compliment the other local hospitality offerings.

Design Excellence Scorecard
Moreland City Council

We’re proud to share that Brunswick East by Milieu received a tick of approval on the ‘Design Excellence Scorecard’—a new program initiated by Moreland City Council. The scorecard exists to improve the quality and liveability of medium and high-density housing in the area. This is a vision we share wholeheartedly, and we’re humbled to be the first recipient of this commendation.

Brunswick East by Milieu is the only project thus far to meet all four benchmarks on environmental impact, building design and construction, accessibility, and community benefit.

Sunday Lunch
with Congress and Etta

We look forward to starting the build of Brunswick East by Milieu—but, in the meantime, the site’s being put to good use. Not only is it thriving as a community garden managed by 3000acres, it’s also a haven of fresh produce for our hospitality venues, and was the perfect event space for Congress and local restaurant Etta to present at the 2019 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Perhaps most importantly, it’s a tranquil hideaway for our team to share a meal and explore the possibilities of this special project.

To ensure the health and safety of the community, our display suites are now open by appointment only as we continue to work remotely to design and deliver apartments for people.

We are excited to announce that Milieu is now supporting Homes for Homes; an initiative addressing homelessness in Australia.

Milieu will commit 0.1% of the sale price of each apartment at Brunswick East to Homes for Homes who will take this funding and grant it to experienced housing providers to tackle the lack of homes for those who need social and affordable housing.

Each apartment will then remain registered with Homes for Homes and purchasers have the option to make a similar donation in the future when they sell the property.
