In 2017, Melbourne-based architects Joseph Toscano and Dino Pezzutti acquired the prominent Collingwood site at 93 Wellington Street, with a goal of catering to market demand for spacious 3-bedroom homes. With a vision in mind, they founded Duke Ventures and embarked on their $11 million residential development, Duke Apartments.

Fast-forward to today, the team have commenced construction on the luxury project, and have released an exclusive selection of lavish full-floor apartments for sale. 

The Duke Apartments residences

Duke Apartments feature nine three-bedroom palatial homes, which boast 2.8-metre stylish concrete ceilings, elegant parquetry flooring and range in size from 158-185 square metres, with each home featuring an expansive balcony.

Natural flow-through ventilation throughout each apartment lowers the reliance on mechanical cooling systems, significantly reducing electricity bills and promoting resident health and wellbeing. A VRV air-conditioning unit is also included within each home to compliment the natural airflow, ensuring optimum thermal control and heat distribution year-round.

All residences include exclusive access to a private elevator and personal lobby, providing residents with the perfect transition from the thriving bustle of Collingwood, into their calm home sanctuaries. DP Toscano Architects have carefully considered the layout of each space within the homes, making allowances for special features including spacious “study nooks”, lavish butler’s pantries and large open-plan living and dining areas.

“Our building design responds to contemporary life and, in particular, to our society’s changing expectations to residential living within an urban context. We seek to present apartments of a size, layout and quality that make a significant contribution to this inner-city area, and which also form a key part of our commitment to an integral sustainable development model.”

The interiors have been styled with a muted tonal palette to give buyers the flexibility to customise their home to their taste. Buyers will also have the option of choosing a furniture package upgrade from STYLECRAFT, making the moving process seamless and their home liveable immediately.

Duke Apartment’s sustainability initiatives

The design is set to attain a 6.5 Star NatHERS rating for the home's thermal performance and energy efficiency. Duke Ventures are also planning to purchase carbon offsets, install ample bicycle parking, invest in rainwater harvesting, solar power and renewable energy sources to ensure the development complies with the company’s environmental targets. Residents can also buy with confidence knowing that their home has been built using materials which contain low embodied energy and low VOCs where possible.

“Our project team is committed to achieving a building outcome which responds to community expectations for Environmentally Sustainable Development.”
