Queens AvenueHawthorn VIC Australia
Located in Queens Avenue, Hawthorn backing onto the railway line and Auburn Village shopping strip this development transformed a former industrial site into a high-quality mixed use building. A café activates the street at ground level, and 70 apartments over 7 levels have been carefully configured to maximise opportunities for outlook and resolve the awkward L-shaped site.
The project went through a robust planning process to achieve permission which includes extensive communal roof-top facilities beyond the preferred height limit for the area. The building design by CHT Architects provides for a high-quality architectural response that engages well with the public realm and will age gracefully over time.
