Welcome to Academy
The third collaboration between MAB and esteemed architects MCR, Academy showcases an innovative design focused on flexible, welcoming homes that elevate the wellbeing of residents.
Select from one, two and three bedroom apartments, split-level homes with large ground floor or rooftop terraces, or flexible home office (SOHO) apartments.
Academy will welcome a new society of young people, families and older residents, creating a “village within a village”.
For younger people, the one and two bedroom apartments prioritise space and flexibility with many of the designs featuring dedicated work from home areas. Families and downsizers will appreciate the spacious three bedroom apartments with large kitchens and living areas.
All apartments benefit from generous, light filled balconies that are ideal for pets and plants, providing shade in summer, yet allowing plentiful sunshine to stream through the floor to ceiling glazing in winter.
Academy offers a range of two and three bedroom split-level homes which offer the features and space of a townhouse, with the added benefits of elevated views, convenient lift access to basement car parking (two spaces) and up to the spectacular rooftop garden.
Split-level homes at the ground level on Abbotsford Street feature private street entries with separate living and bedroom zones. The upper floor split-level homes feature large private rooftop terraces with incredible views across the city. These innovative designs provide a range of choices for downsizers and families.
Academy’s innovative ground level home office (SOHO) apartments are a response to Melbourne’s changing work patterns. Comprising a two bedroom apartment with a connected office studio (that can be separately tenanted if preferred), these spaces are perfect for small businesses and have the ability to accommodate up to 12 staff in a creative, inspiring inner city community.
Haines Street Townhouses
The architecture of the Academy Haines Street townhouses is thoughtful, locally sensitive and future focused, combining the character of North Melbourne with contemporary design in this limited collection of seventeen homes.
Thoughtfully designed in terms of scale, layout and finishes, each four bedroom townhouse is practical and flexible, while remaining beautifully serene. Large kitchens and living spaces open onto ground floor courtyards. At the upper levels, separate zones for adults and children, multiple bathrooms and the space to work from home, will accommodate households of all ages – ensuring that these are homes to grow with, not outgrow.
Driven by intelligent design, the interiors at Academy feature practical, useable spaces combined with contemporary interior palettes that are both durable and beautiful. With a choice of four different interior schemes, purchasers can customise their home to create the living environment that resonates with their lifestyle.
