Napier Street Church, Fitzroy

Bilby's picture

There is a fascinating new development of the historic Napier Street Church and Church Hall now underway in Fitzroy. The developer is currently engaging in a community consultation process with local heritage and resident groups, residents and council. There is also a website up and running with information about all aspects of this very innovative development. See it here:

It's quite a remarkable and unusual commercial project for Melbourne at the moment. The transparent solar glass roof tiles to replace the historic north facing slate roof are unlike anything I've come across, amongst other interesting aspects of the design - well worth spending a bit of time to investigate the website.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.
