It's a shame to lose one of the liveliest sections of this part of La Trobe Street for this - as a model for "activating" previously dead spaces, the fantastic little Tokyo style plywood cafe here is the perfect piece of improvised urbanism. Can the new building incorporate something as great? ... of course not.

That lobby is embarrassing. Not as bad as the graphic panels on "You and I" in Collingwood, but embarrassing whitebread crass commercialism nevertheless.

Interesting, thank you. I looked at this site the other day, after I took a shot of 42, and wondered how it was going.

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

Late last year Urban Melbourne was invited for a tour of the new offices of CAPI in Windsor and a chat with its founder Pitzy Folk.

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
