The site is gifted with some beautiful, large trees that will be retained. Over 40 different species and hundreds of new trees will be planted, to create a long lasting canopy for existing neighbours and future residents.
A sustainable water management system providing passive irrigation to support the extensive landscaping and plant life will be supported by a blue-green spine through the central part of the site.
Open and shared spaces will be broken into well considered zones, accessible by the wider community to harness the social spirit of the area and create a strong sense of neighbourhood.
The homes will be designed to celebrate Wantirna’s history, but in a sustainable and timeless manner. Landscaped courtyards will complement the backyards and large open spaces within the site.
All on street parking for the original school will be retained and a new footpath for use by the community will be added, accentuating the numerous pedestrian linkages through the site. Parking for future residents will be contained within the site.
Construction is now underway.

Perfectly at home in the heart of Richmond, Shelley St will be a limited collection of 9 townhouses designed by DKO and SLAB Architecture.
The design embraces its corner position to create individual street frontages – a rare quality for inner city townhouses.
This pocket of Richmond offers the best of both worlds: quiet residential living, yet also just moments from the vibrancy of Victoria Street and the centre of the CBD.
Keep up with the action onsite at Shelley St.
11 lofts brought to you by the people of Collingwood.
Anticipated completion in 2021.
There is nowhere else like Collingwood. Inspired by the authentic character of its surrounding streets and eclectic culture, The Workshop is a limited collection of 11 contemporary lofts.
From the existing façade on Harmsworth Street to the refined industrial interior spaces, the architectural and design team from DKO and SLAB has ensured The Workshop acknowledges the form, history and present day character of this inner-urban area.
The result is something completely different to today’s market, yet perfectly in tune with how Collingwood locals like to live.
The double height loft residences of The Workshop offer a living experience not generally available in today’s apartments. Unlike split-level apartments, which are sometimes mistakenly described as lofts, these are true Brooklyn style homes with five-metre high ceilings in the living areas set against bedrooms in an upper level.
The Workshop is created by people who live and work in the area. The architect lives two streets away from this location, while the engineers and designers work nearby. They all share a passion for the area and are committed to keeping the character of Collingwood alive.
