Tailor-made living in Brunswick East

Drawing from the site’s historic use as a fabric mill, Seamstress weaves strong architectural statements across the building’s facade and into the crafted interiors. Industrial applications of exposed concrete, natural timber floorboards and slider cabinetry provide a refined rawness which connects with Brunswick’s past and sets the scene for a long future. Seamstress offers a range of one, two and three bedroom residences to suit every lifestyle. That’s seen in the abundant storage, flexibility of space configurations and in the generous terraces with room for outdoor dining and herb gardens.
