1–3 York Street Prahran
Behind the vibrant hum of Prahran’s thoroughfares a sedate network of backstreets and laneways foster a more subdued pace within the inner city. Located in this neighbourhood are the residences of 1–3 York Street, a domestic retreat moments away from many of Melbourne’s liveliest locations.
98 Chapel St, Windsor
Hawker Hall channels the fervent energy of Malaysia and Singapore’s energetic street food cultures. The sprawling interior, and equally extensive menu and beer list, evokes the clamorous energy and diversity of its inspiration.
PRAHRAN AQUATIC CENTRE
41 Essex St, Prahran
The best kept secret for open air swimming in town. Prahran Pool is the ideal retreat in summer for both mid-morning sunbathers and squads. Noted to have the most polite lane-etiquette in the South.
89 Albert St, Windsor
In the depths of every Melbourne suburb quietly beats a heart in the form of a pub. The social workhorse that is the Windsor Castle meets the most basic needs: a cold drink and a plate of food, be it in a sunlit garden in summer or by a crackling fire in winter.
MELBOURNE BOWLING CLUB
138 Union St, Windsor
As the first bowling club in Australia, established in 1913, the Melbourne Bowling Club has lived by the values of competition, comradeship and courtesy. Seasoned pros and amateur punters alike will quickly embrace this philosophy whiling away an afternoon with a beer, a BBQ and a bowl.
163 Commercial Rd,
Prahran Market rightly takes its place as one of Melbourne’s finest destinations for fresh produce. Behind its vast bounty of goods and specialty items is a roster of traders with unparalleled knowledge and enthusiasm.
For over a century, the five acres of Victoria Gardens have sat quietly behind High Street. Several paths wind through the gardens’ flowerbeds, rose gardens, fountains, statues and vast expanses of lawn, offering respite in the form of green at any time of year.
1 Chapel St & Dandenong Road, St Kilda
Film buffs and the less discerning alike will both feel at home in Windsor’s historic Astor Theatre. The generous and diverse annual program offers it all, from Wesley Snipes slaying vampires to Catherine Deneuve slaying hearts.
162 Greville St, Prahran
The impeccable wood-fired pizzas that emerge from Ladro ovens are known on both sides of the river. Ladro is a local favourite in two suburbs, known for its casual sophistication and unfussy approach to robust Italian fare.
Conceived by Outline Projects, and designed by Object Subject Architecture, these eleven townhouses provide the finest standard in living and easy access to the area’s bustling cultural and commercial hubs.
The façade of the residence is composed of uniform timber cladding that evokes the refined simplicity of contemporary design aesthetics. Off-form textured concrete and black steel framing the windows contrast with the warmth of this timber, nodding to the area’s industrial heritage. The angles of the structure offer an understated dynamism and touches of greenery gracefully soften the materiality of the building.
Clean lines and the simple elegance epitomised by Scandinavian design characterise the interiors of these townhouses. The subtle patternation of stone and terrazzo provide calm points of textural interest and add dimension to the refined materials of the spaces. Soft wood detailing speaks to the timber lined exterior and crisp white finishes maintain uniformity throughout the interior. Timeless amenities and fittings by Rogerseller adorn bathrooms and kitchens are equipped with the finest quality Miele appliances. Each three bedroom home has access to two secure carspaces. A landscaped courtyard and generous roof terrace take full advantage of these spaces while maintaining privacy. Two bedroom homes each offer one secure parking space, and an individual balcony provides access to the outdoors, extending the living space from inside to outside.
The residences of 1–3 York Street are an ideal retreat from the busy urban environment that surrounds, creating a fine balance between amenity and sanctuary.

Object Subject is a practice concerned with the design and delivery of thoughtful, considered, and critical architecture. Based in Melbourne and led by directors Michael Barraclough, Dennis Prior, and Stephan Bekhor, we approach each project with a sense of curiosity, rigour, and enthusiasm.
We are sensitive to the ambitions of our clients and work collaboratively to develop creative responses that exceed expectations. We are committed to contemporary design and innovation, and believe architecture has the potential to make a significant contribution to culture and the environment. Our work spans a range of scales, budgets, and typologies, but is always driven by a pursuit of beautiful form (objects) and the transformative power of ideas (subjects).
Jack Merlo’s vision finds its origins in the landscapes of the mind. His practice navigates stylistic and functional considerations with poise. The combination of distinct references forms the basis for design work that is grounded in simplicity and elegance. Unique outdoor spaces are created with conceptual rigour and executed with precision. Designs are composed of natural and manmade elements, which are finessed to work together harmoniously. In his work, Jack understands that the rhythm, form and character of the landscape will have an indelible impact on a resident’s relationship to their home.
At the beginning of the design process, a site and the characteristics of a location will always form a foundation for conceptual development. A collaborative approach ensures that a design appreciates and works within overarching architectural intent.
Outline is a property developer determined to deliver projects of enduring value. We aim to inspire the imagination and encourage collaboration at every stage of the development process. From the finest of details to the broadest context of space and location – from the technical to the visionary – consideration is applied in equal measure to ensure quality on every level. This approach is as important to those who choose to invest as it is to those who wish to occupy. Because it is this sense of scale, this commitment to balance, that will allow us to consistently produce projects of excellence.
Years of experience engender an understanding of the unique nuances of a location. 1 – 3 York Street exercises a keen eye for contemporary living and aesthetics, expressing the quality and precision of Outline Projects’ approach.
