231 Napier Street, Edition Office for Milieu
12 Fitzroy Apartments
This is Milieu’s third project on a leafy stretch of Fitzroy’s Napier Street. It sits within a coveted neighbourhood pocket cupped by Gertrude, Smith and Brunswick Streets, where a particular residential character is created by historical built forms. Edition Office, in their first collaboration with Milieu, take a considerately experimental approach to the architecture. In an homage to design lineage, process and craft, Edition Office offers a contemporary interpretation of Fitzroy’s architectural typologies, and a celebration of both the past and the future of this quietly atmospheric golden triangle.
Handmade v. Hyper-machined
Model-making with Edition Office
In their reverential approach to the craft and assembly of buildings, Edition Office strips back embellishment and foregrounds raw, textural elements. The result is ultimately found in the built form, but first, materiality and the way the building will feel is explored in the integral stage of model-making.
Their process marries the hand-made aspect of architecture with precise, hyper-machined methods. The outcome is a sculptural object that expresses the key elements of Napier Street’s form: a hard concrete outer shell, a softer timber inner skin and a central volume enriched with stone.
