  • Sophisticated Simple Living

    Nishi is Australia’s most radically sustainable mixed-use building and apartment complex and represents the third and final stage of the NewActon precinct and responds to our more communal, more cosmopolitan and more world-wise ways of being. Nishi is the new beacon for more responsible, sustainable living in Canberra because it brings together the notions of community and environmental positivism in the one place.

  • Make Your Move

    NewActon South is the striking centrepiece of NewActon precinct; a sensuous glass, steel and concrete curvilinear apartment tower that transcends the everyday through its quality of thought, exacting craftsmanship, distinctive materiality and ever-present integration of contemporary art.

    Strings in the Salon

    Canberra Symphony Orchestra String Ensemble play Felix Mendelssohn’s Octet in E Flat Major, Op 20. This is no small work, laced with Goethe's Faust and written by Felix when he was 16 for four violins, two violas and two cellos... Very nice.
