Reinterpreting industrial heritage

George Corner

Located in Fitzroy’s industrial heartland, the architecture reinterprets the strong Victorian façades of the neighbouring warehouses, typified by buildings with defined parapets and punched openings. At street level, a café and home office tenancies provide activation and create new boltholes for residents of the Fitzroy backstreets.

The compact apartments have been designed to maximise liveability within a small footprint and with an emphasis on amenity. At the same time, the covered balconies provide a natural extension to the living areas and a year-round extension to the internal living areas.
