Great architecture, expertly resolved and well located has the potential to calm, to inspire and to shape life for the better. Each space, material, and outlook at Ruskin Elwood has been designed with a deep commitment to enhancing quality of life.

Each residence at Ruskin Elwood has a large northern frontage and is nestled among the canopies of some of the neighbourhood’s most significant heritage-listed trees. These are homes from which to embark on an exciting new journey and embrace the benefits of considered design and a highly efficient, fossil fuel-free future.

Better living for a better future.

It is a beautiful, yet increasingly rare occurrence, when a new home and its living spaces reflect the values of those who inhabit them.

The HIP V. HYPE Sustainability team has ensured that each residence will achieve exceptional environmental performance and ease of use. A 7-star minimum NatHERS rating target has been set for the project. Each Ruskin Elwood home will be run almost entirely off renewable power with onsite solar panels, electric heat pumps for hot water, hydronic heating and Tesla Powerwall batteries.
