Ferrars & York
HIP V. HYPE with Six Degrees Architects and built by Ironside
Enabled by HIP V. HYPE, designed in collaboration with Six Degrees Architects and built by Ironside. Ferrars & York in South Melbourne presents best practice in climate resilient design and construction and is one of the most sustainable apartment buildings in Australia. Ferrars & York comprises twenty-two 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments with an average energy rating of 8.6-stars and the highest performing apartment achieving 9.3-stars (out of 10). At ground level, a retail space is jointly occupied by HIP V. HYPE’s Ferrars & York Collective; a workshare space for sustainably minded businesses and Bike Gallery; a specialty bike store. Across its six levels, Ferrars & York fosters a vertical community. Open walkways create an active skyline and a visual connection to the wider community, whilst a communal roof yard with BBQ, fireplace and landscaped arbour provides a space for residents to enjoy views across the city and South Melbourne Market.
In an established suburb where families are increasingly priced out of standalone dwellings and supply is considerably short of demand, Ferrars & York provides families with housing choice. With proximity to amenity, services and employment critical for families of all ages, Ferrars & York supports the necessary future of urban living.
Ferrars & York provides a proof point that all-electric, carbon neutral living can be more than just a pipe dream but a reality.
