Nestled between Victoria’s vibrant Upper Fort Street and Cook Street Village, 1120 Burdett is an infill design that integrates elegant contemporary urban architecture among a classic Victoria streetscape.
Award winning Low Hammond Rowe Architects have thoughtfully redesigned 1120 Burdett to enhance the street’s urban fabric. The design team has expressed each façade in a unique way to integrate the experience with the neighbouring context, as all elevations encounter unique conditions. Articulating parapets along the Burdett façade exemplify the personality of high ridges on the avenue's character homes. The prominence of the walkout townhouse styled units with a recessed facade connect to the current streetscape. Highlights of warm cedar soffits express the southern elevation in a mix of texture and materials, to develop a familiar rhythm along the street. Depressed and projecting forms are distinguished at corners and transitions, reminiscent of the character defining devices used throughout the neighbourhood.
