Wireframe Architecture is a boutique architecture firm located in Melbourne.
With a focus on providing design services to support Meydan Group’s growing number of commercial and residential property developments, Wireframe has successfully delivered large projects with its team of design architects, site construction architects and interior designers.
Founded in 2013 and based in Melbourne, Meydan Group identified a need to vertically integrate and own in-house the capability to develop and deliver commercial and residential projects. Rockland Construction Pty Ltd is the result of that decision.
Tom Fagan was appointed Rockland’s Construction Manager at its inception and works closely with the Meydan Group advisory group from project selection through to completion. The Meydan Group’s approach to development is to acquire properties and enhance these by obtaining appropriate permits, completing the requisite planning, and then undertaking the development itself.
Rockland has completed several large multi-residential and mixed-use developments, including Belford Apartments, St Kilda and Purnell Apartments, Northcote, with new projects scheduled for development every year.
The Purnell Apartments on Arthurton Road in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote is a signature residential development project for the Meydan Group.
Acquired in 1999, the property was always earmarked for development. The building on the site was originally a shoe factory and was constructed during the 1960s. Since purchasing the property, the Meydan Group progressively undertook to obtain the necessary permits to develop the site.
Purnell Apartments is a five level building, incorporating ground floor retail space, 49 residential units, and a communal open space area, now considered an essential element of comparable developments.
The property settled successfully in February 2017. It was delivered on time and within budget, transforming the building from a dated and unattractive shoe factory to an iconic retail and residential development.
