Last week, C.F Row received an award for Multiple Housing, Residential Architecture in the prestigious Victorian Architecture Awards hosted by the Australian Institute of Architects. The awards recognise the most excellent and innovative projects from a shortlist of 108 entries across 14 distinct Categories.
In Fitzroy, one of Melbourne’s oldest inner-city suburbs, a former furniture warehouse turned housing reflects its unique working-class history. The elegantly crafted multi-residential building features 43 apartments and seven townhouses that have redefined urban living in the heart of an iconic street and neighbourhood.
Award-winning architects, Woods Bagot, have drawn inspiration from the history, the built context and the dynamic culture of Fitzroy to create a stunning collection of contemporary residences. The 1686 square meter site contrasts a residential complex’s contemporary, lightweight aluminium, spacious interior by the heritage buildings original façade, inviting current and prospective residents to immerse themselves in the unique bohemian culture whilst paying homage to its rich blue-collar history.
The stunning collection of contemporary residences were completed late 2017 by leading Melbourne property developer, Dealcorp, and is a landmark project nominated for various design awards.
C.F Row will now progress to compete in the National Architecture Awards, the shortlist will be released by the Australian Institute of Architects in the coming months.
