About Assemble

Assemble is dedicated to housing and shaping the culture of living closer together. Assemble is an end-to-end property development and management company with a close, long-term relationship with each community we help build. The launch of the Assemble Model marks a new chapter for the team as they go deeper into building well-designed and more accessible housing in Melbourne and beyond.  

About The Assemble Model

The Assemble Model is a new housing model that bridges the gap between renting and owning your home. The idea is simple: lease your home while you save to buy. Your rent and purchase price are fixed, giving you stability while you save. All while having the freedom to leave the lease or decide not to buy. It's our response to the very real challenge of housing affordability in our much-loved city, Melbourne.

About 393 Macaulay Rd, Kensington

Assemble’s next project located at 393 Macaulay Rd, Kensington will be the first delivered under the Assemble Model.

At the heart of the design is a landscaped, open-air walkway that will bring cross-flow ventilation and dual aspect natural light to all homes. The entire community will be connected through communal spaces on the upper and ground floors: space for work, eating and leisure, together. Identified as one of Resilient Melbourne’s Resilient Communities (an initiative of 100 Resilient Cities pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation), 393 Macaulay Rd will encourage greater understanding of how to create more connected communities that are both sustainable and financially viable.
