Whitlam Place, Fitzroy
Whitlam Place is a series of homes with distinct personalities, conceived as a solid form resting on a podium of light-filled transparency.
Designed by Freadman White Architects in collaboration with Anon Studio, both the building and the homes were guided by a rigorous process of reflection, and an aim to make a significant contribution to the streetscape.
The exterior is finished with copper oxide to create depth and tonal variation, while the layered vertical greenery offers textural contrast and acts as a counterweight to the building’s solidity.
Designed for owner-occupiers, the homes were thoughtfully crafted to accommodate individual lifestyles, with floor-plans modified during development to suit residents’ particular needs.
