A collaboration between Cera Stribley and Melbourne-based property developer, Outline, Fifty Eight Porter Street reflects the neighbourhood’s industrial background and its celebrated energy and personality. It’s sophisticated, authentically green and decidedly local.
Since c.1800s, the architectural fabric of Prahran has been a rich tapestry of industrial and residential buildings. Fluid in form and elegantly stitched into its surrounds – through sophisticated use of pattern, texture and colour – the design for Fifty Eight Porter Street draws inspiration from the locale’s history as a thriving fashion and textile precinct.
Situated just a short stroll from the historic Prahran Market, Grattan Gardens and Chapel Street, the development comprises two lower levels of retail and office space and 51 generous apartments above.
The curved design of the building allows for the inclusion of planting and green space and a material palette of warm concrete tones, brick and steel nods to the area’s industrial character while confidently establishing its contemporary credentials.
The refined and considered entrance experience is immediately calming, complementing the greenery of the neighbouring park. Within the residences, steel detailing highlights bold colour scheme options, everyday elements make statements, integrated storage is abundant and generous balconies connect with open plan living areas to accommodate a life of shared experiences.
The design and amenity of the apartments is a fitting addition to the fabric of the neighbourhood, establishing Fifty Eight Porter Street as an enviable property in a prized postcode.
