3 Railway Ave, Armadale
Situated on the traditional lands of the 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.
