A respectful alteration and addition to an existing heritage facade on Armadale’s prominent High Street, this project crafted the headquarters for a family business.
Its design is a nimble and sensitive response to a heritage street context. Set back from the original Victorian-era facade with the inclusion of a roof terrace, the new roofline mimics a traditional saw tooth construction. It is reminiscent of traditional warehouse building techniques of the same era, whilst maintaining the strong graphic line of the original brick front.
The top-most level opens up onto a roof terrace to the north, with expansive views of Melbourne to the north west and more intimate views of the Malvern Town Hall immediately to the east.
