A tale of old meets new

Luminess is a collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes that honours Essendon’s rich heritage. 

Inspired by the quality of the suburb’s red brick buildings, John Demos Architects has designed a new landmark that features a rare level of craftsmanship and timelessness. 

The façade, comprised of glazed brick columns, a curvilinear band of brickwork and glass walls, references the adjacent church and old buildings of Russell Street. 

This traditional foundation contrasts with a more contemporary material palette above, creating an elegant differentiation of form. At street level, an activated retail precinct interacts with the community along Russell Street and the surrounding area, creating a vibrant new hub for Essendon.

The interiors of Luminess are designed by the acclaimed Kathy Demos who worked in close collaboration with her brother, John Demos, in crafting the building as a cohesive whole. 

Each space is carefully considered for those who will occupy it, with large open floorplans providing the flexibility for an ever-evolving way of living. 

The upper storey balconies offer impressive views out over Melbourne, while the lower level terraces overlook the bustling streetscape — perfect for entertaining guests on a warm evening.

A textural palette creates a multi-dimensional canvas that is highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows, and the subtle use of colour invites residents to inject their individual style into a home of refined beauty.
