Retaining local heritage

This new apartment project in the growing suburb of Coburg was built behind and above a heritage listed, art deco façade. A car park was also included under the existing structure.

The complexity of this design was due to the need to maintain the integrity of the existing heritage form. The new section features a mono colour scheme, which was selected to minimise distraction from the fully restored façade. In addition, existing windows were removed, while openings were used to form private courtyards and individual balconies.
