Mirvac are continuing to raise the bar within their residential communities. 

This time, the Australian property developer has collaborated with a group of pioneering Australian consumer brands to deliver an innovative ‘Future Ready Display Home’ at its $350 million community, The Fabric in Altona North

Like all homes at The Fabric, the 7-star NATHERS rated Future Ready Display Home is designed to use 27 per cent less energy annually to heat and cool compared to a standard 6 Star rated home. 

With the additional inclusions of energy efficient, fully electric appliances and rooftop solar panels, the home is estimated to deliver substantial savings to customers on energy bills with the opportunity to choose renewable grid power and have a fossil fuel free home.

Set to open this weekend, the Future Ready Display Home is part of Mirvac’s ambition to drive environmental and social sustainability and will explore how small choices in the home can have big impacts on the planet. 

Partnering with over 16 Australian brands, Mirvac have engaged interior designers, Without Studio to curate and style the 155 sqm display home, which will showcase a townhome ahead of its time, according to Mirvac

Visitors to the Future Ready Display Home will have the opportunity to explore and learn more about sustainable furniture, appliances, fashion, cleaning, bedding, beauty, personal care and more, with Mirvac’s sustainability collaborators including Boody, Carlotta & Gee, Community Bike Hub, Go for Zero, Great Wrap, Harvey Norman, Jardan, Joshua Space, Koala, Outland Denim, Pleasant State, Plyroom, Rocc, Sans Beast, Smeg, The Dirt Company and The Plant Society. 

Mirvac’s General Manager of Residential Victoria, Elysa Anderson, said that Mirvac hopes the home will provide an opportunity to educate existing and future homeowners on the benefits of sustainable living. 

Mirvac is at the forefront of driving change in housing sustainability initiatives and we understand that home efficiency is more important than ever to homeowners. The Future Ready Display Home is part of our long-term goal to improve our residents’ lifestyle by reducing their energy bills and environmental impact,” she said. 

“Our partnerships with this amazing group of Australia’s most innovative sustainable consumer brands will allow us to collectively connect with and educate our community on how sustainable products can positively impact their daily lives.”

In addition to each fully-electric townhome in The Fabric achieving a minimum 7 Star NATHERS energy rating, the homes will also be built to achieve the Livable House Australia (LHA) Silver Design Certification to meet the changing needs of occupants across their lifetime.

Located at 188-198 Blackshaws Road, over 60 residents across 30 homes already live at The Fabric. Upon completion The Fabric will be home to circa 1,500 residents across more than 500 two, three and four-bedroom townhomes and future mid-rise apartments. 

The 11.5 hectare masterplanned community has been designed to enhance the health and wellbeing of future residents, with a strong focus on creating green, landscaped public and private garden spaces set within a dynamic, family-friendly urban village. 

At its heart is the newly opened 4,000 sqm Patchwork Park, complete with spiral slide, climbing structures, musical elements, herb garden and barbecues and picnic shelters for residents and the local community to enjoy. 

Mirvac has also partnered with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Foundation (SAKGF) to further strengthen sustainable living solutions at The Fabric. The partnership will see SAKGF advise on the design and delivery of the planned community garden and kitchen facilities, as well as helping to educate families to form positive food habits for life. 

The creation of The Cook’s Patch program will allow residents and the wider community to come together to learn, participate and celebrate food education based on the principles of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing. 

Limited opportunities currently remain to purchase within The Fabric’s highly anticipated Jacaranda Precinct, which is ideally located adjacent to The Lawn - planned to provide a range of active spaces for the community, including a half basketball court.
