O dear dont like it - there should be a 3-4 storey podium / streetscape to provide a good context for the rare little 1850s terrace house to avoid the squashed look. The 5m setback is good but should start much lower, dont min dif they just delete the 2 flats at the front on levels 4-9. The cantilever over much of the rear compounds the problem, but if starts quite high, and setback from street enough, then ok. And then theres the quality of the design ........

A slightly modified proposal was refused by council last night - plot ratio too high, setbacks not enough, saddleback bedrooms not good enough, driveway on lonsdale street too wide.....

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.

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

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.
