Trilby, located at 466-482 Smith Street, has been specifically designed to respect and enhance the important heritage values of Smith Street, with a fashionable collection of outstanding lifestyle apartments that have drawn inspiration from the very best of the old and new Collingwood; an evolving inner city suburb which has grown from its early industrial heritage to now become one of the most Melbourne’s most surprising, inspiring, appealingly unpredictable and vibrant cultural centres.

Located on the edge of the City of Melbourne, and only 3kms North East of Melbourne’s CBD the proud inner city suburb of Collingwood is the perfect location to take full advantage of the very best that Melbourne has to offer. Tram services and major road networks provide immediate access to the heart of the CBD and surrounds, whilst the Copenhagen-style bike lanes now under construction on Wellington Street, will soon provide cyclists with safer routes when cycling to and from the City.
As one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs, perhaps what’s most appealing about Collingwood is its rich industrial, manufacturing and retail history.
Collingwood in its early industrial days was a suburb that was revered as the millenary, boot-making and textile capital of Australia and many notable historical buildings from that period including 19th century factories, warehouses, dwellings and shops still exist and are in use today.
Years ago you’d have said Collingwood could never be tamed, but these days it’s a sought out suburb filled with inventive bars, interesting people, vintage boutiques, street art and eateries of virtually every description.
Externally, Trilby presents with a modern architectural appeal, yet on closer inspection has carefully fused a selection of surface and material treatments that have a semi-industrial and heritage aesthetic. With its industrialised warehouse facade, Trilby takes inspiration from the early industrial heritage of Collingwood, which is reflected in the architectural exterior and design approach to the internal residential spaces.
This aesthetic is highlighted by darker, sophisticated exterior tones and a combination of exterior finishes including bronzed glass, exposed concrete and metal structural elements that present with the look of weathered copper.
