Introducing 2135 Point Nepean Road, coming soon to Rye

Winning Council’s approval for a significant new mixed-use development on a prominent coastal site is never a small feat. Between responding to various planning controls and mitigating local residents’ concerns, all the while designing sensitively toward people and place, there is a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes to get a project off the ground. ⁠

So, we are especially thrilled to announce that our design for this new Curtis York development in Rye has officially been approved!⁠

Nestled in the heart of Rye, 2135 Point Nepean Road is a pioneering new mixed-use development, designed by Cera Stribley for Curtis York. Inspired by the Mornington Peninsula’s surrounding natural landscape, the building explores the union of timeless design and natural beauty, contextualised by an enviable coastal setting. A pioneering addition to the area, the design proudly and sensitively heroes its surrounds, synthesising distinct natural elements of it’s locale.

“The building’s façade draws direct inspiration from the Mornington Peninsula’s coastal environment, echoing both the texture of sand dunes and the fluidity of waves. Strong horizontal breaks continue to draw on the ripples in the sand and sea, reiterating the strong relationship between the design response and its site,” says Cera Stribley co-founder and managing principal, Dom Cerantonio.

Stay tuned for more on this exciting project in 2024.
