For Toohey Miller founder Nick Couloumbis, No.1 Onslow Place fulfils the promise of his grandfather’s eponymous architectural practice, first established in 1955. Toohey Miller helped shape the fabric of inner Sydney, and spent much of his life living and working in the streets of Elizabeth Bay. Today, his grandson Nick is taking Toohey Miller’s legacy into the future, delivering residential
and commercial developments that embody architectural excellence. Focusing on Sydney’s most exceptional lifestyle neighbourhoods, he curates the ideal designers, consultants and architects to reimagine the potential of the built and natural environment. No.1 Onslow Place is Toohey Miller’s flagship project for the inner east, and will be a local landmark for generations to come.
A well-renowned Australian architectural studio, Tzannes is known for its long-lasting collaborative relationships, with a shared commitment to deliver sustainable and enduring design. Its clients demand the highest standards of design, and the practice responds with creative ideas for residences built to endure, and designed to enhance the experience.
This is evident in the masterful design for No. 1 Onslow Place, which enriches the heritage character of the neighbourhood while providing contemporary residences flooded with natural light and space. Unexpectedly long harbour vistas have been expertly created by bending light and space through the curved building form and activating light access throughout.
