3 Railway Ave, Amardale
Situated on the traditional lands of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, this six townhouse development draws upon the architectural character and materiality of post-war multi-unit developments in the surrounding suburbs.
Its prominent street frontage is activated by hit-and-miss brickwork, which not only provides screening to ground floor windows but also acts as a textured backdrop to street activity. At night, this becomes a patterned illuminated facade. The upper levels are screened from the western sun via operable timber shutters.
