Burwood Road Apartments - 93 Burwood Road, Hawthorn
Adding to a heritage-listed building in a contemporary manner requires skill and imagination. This ‘knitting together’ of architectural styles has been successfully achieved with these four apartments. Nestled above a row of 1880s Victorian shop fronts, Droo Projects designed an additional two levels without impacting on the preserved heritage streetscape. The façade of the apartments has been carefully orchestrated with angular timber fenestrations that animate the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Having this concertinaed arrangement also creates a dialogue with the original Victorian buildings’ lavish window and parapet mouldings.
