Six Degrees Architects to Design Beulah New Brunswick Townhouse Project

Award-winning Melbourne-based developer Beulah has appointed Six Degrees Architects to design an eco-responsible townhouse project on a newly acquired property in Brunswick. Located at 17-23 Hodgson Street, the well-maintained 3,700m² site has two expansive street frontages totaling over 120m.

Expanding its footprint into the city center, Beulah aims to offer a collection of 25 eco-sustainable low-rise townhouses whose design seeks to retain the existing heritage facade while incorporating biophilic elements and sustainable materials. The Brunswick site joins Beulah’s growing portfolio in Melbourne’s inner north, including Fitzroy and Northcote.

Strategically located near the famous Sydney Road shopping district including Barkly Square Shopping Center and Union Square Shopping Centre, the site offers quick and easy access to some of Melbourne’s popular parks such as Royal Park, Princes Park and the Zoo from Melbourne, as well as the picturesque Temple Park.

“Brunswick is a thriving, creative and environmentally conscious pocket of Melbourne and we look forward to working with the local people and community to bring justice to the site,” said Beulah chief executive Jiaheng Chan.

“We are thrilled to be working with Six Degrees Architects to deliver a collection of raw, heritage warehouse style townhouses that are environmentally sustainable, designed to be low density, unique and environmentally friendly.

“Our goal is to attract like-minded people to this fantastic place, with the opportunity to experience and breathe all the wonderful things Brunswick and its people have to offer,” Chan added.

Six Degrees Director Peter Malatt looks forward to working with Beulah to transform the historic warehouse compound into 25 outstanding Brunswick townhouses.

“We are an architectural firm with a strong connection to Brunswick and a passion for its uniqueness and history. We appreciate his sense of community and we love his stories,” he said.

After completing the park and townhouses on Heller Street, as well as the Spanish Cellars apartments on the adjacent streets, Malatt sees the Beulah project as an opportunity to leverage their local knowledge and play to the rich history of the site.

“Beulah and Six Degrees is a natural collaborative partnership and we are really looking forward to working together on this fantastic project. Our vision of transforming spaces, creating experiences and a sense of community is strongly aligned. We have a shared passion for creating 25 exceptional homes as well as an authentic and meaningful neighborhood that is strongly connected to Brunswick.

The eco-friendly approach of the Brunswick townhouse project follows Beulah’s most innovative residential project to date, The Wilds, which is set to become the first carbon-neutral single-family housing development in central Melbourne.

Located on Cunningham Street in the desirable Westgarth area of ​​Northcote, the development aspires to set a benchmark for environmentally sustainable design principles, with all homes incorporating a solar panel and running on 100% electricity, allowing homes to run on fossil fuels. -without fuel.

“The Wilds reflects our continued commitment to quality, sustainability and eco-responsible practices and this has been very well received by buyers. We intend to leverage this research and experience working with Six Degrees Architects to create a thoughtful design for Brunswick that considers people and the planet,” Chan concluded.
