ID_Land’s latest Brunswick development, Canvas offers residents “a blank canvas, ready to be decorated with all the colourful strokes of community life.”

Take a look at 10 things we love about this project, here at Urban.

1. Delivered by an award-winning developer

Developed by the award-winning ID_Land, Canvas offers residents reassurance in knowing their future home has been delivered to a high-quality.

While maintaining a commitment to sustainability and innovation, ID_Land has a proven track record of delivering successful developments across Brunswick.

2. Its sculptural façade

Paying homage to Brunswick’s industrial past, Canvas’ sculptural façade fits perfectly into Barkly Street. Its industrial form, framed by geometric concrete grids, reinterprets the industrial regeneration of Brunswick.

3. Hecker Guthrie designed interiors

Contrasting against the industrial exterior, interior designers Hecker Guthrie create a synergy between modernity and warmth with Canvas’ neutral interior colour palette and timber floorboards.

Interior features of the luxury development include its functional floorplans, practical storage space and floor-to-ceiling windows. The homes feature open-plan living and an abundance of light.

4. Rooftop communal space

Located on the building’s rooftop sits a variety of communal spaces providing residential amenity and green spaces, with views of Melbourne’s city skyline and parks.

The project boasts a communal lounge area, kitchen and entertainment dining, providing work from home space or a quiet corner for a good book.

5. It’s 100% fossil free and sustainable

With forecasts revealing property investors are increasingly concerned with environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials, ID_Land’s Brunswick development matches the increased environmental awareness of Melbournians.

“Sustainable living is no longer an option, it’s a prerequisite”, said ID_Land’s Matthew Belford. With no gas connection to any apartment, Canvas is 100 per cent fossil fuel free.

All communal areas in the complex make use of solar technology and the rooftop garden collects rainwater for greywater harvesting.

6. Designed by Rothelowman architects

ID_Land’s collaboration with Rothelowman blends rough and smooth materiality and culminates into a beautiful expression of modern architecture.

“We want to engage with the rich tapestry of built form which has shaped Brunswick into the suburb it is today”, Rothelowman architect Stuart Marsland said.

Designing a building offering a collection of 62 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Rothelowman has placed families, couples and individuals as the foundation of their design decisions.

7. On-grade car parking and bike parking

Situated on the bustling Barkly Street, Canvas provides absolute convenience with private and secure access to an on-grade car park, with no car lifts or parking stackers.

Each apartment also benefits from at least one bike space and on-site bike maintenance facilities are available.

But if walking or cycling isn’t for you, Canvas boasts an impressive walk score of 97/100, located less than a minute from nearby shops and just three minutes’ walk to the nearest tram stop.

8. The modern kitchen

For those who enjoy cooking, Canvas’ modern kitchen will be a welcome treat. Hecker Guthrie incorporates European oak joinery, Terrazzo tiles and matte black tapware to keep in touch with the residences’ industrial design.

Each unit has Fisher & Paykel induction cooktops and functional built-in storage design, perfect for entertaining.

9. Vibrating with Brunswick’s dynamic energy

Canvas lies in the heart of Brunswick’s vibrant community, amongst retail hotspots, diverse eateries and bustling bars.

“The Brunswick community is so richly diverse it should be its own city”, ID_Land’s Jeff Garvey said.

Located in close proximity to the Melbourne CBD, amongst universities and a walk from Princes Park, Canvas residents are spoilt for choice, whatever their day brings.


10. First home buyers can save $10,000

Eligible first home buyers may be eligible for the $10,000 First Home Owners Grant, as well as no stamp duty. Other buyers may be eligible for a 50 per cent reduction in stamp duty, subject to purchaser eligibility.
