Whitlam Place
by Freadman White and Anon Studio

Gavin Green

Freadman White and Anon Studio teamed up to design Whitlam Place, a residential complex in Melbourne.

Whitlam Place has been conceived as a solid form resting atop a podium of light-filled transparency; balancing material weight against structural lightness.

Inspired by the classical proportions of the nearby Fitzroy Town Hall, the housing complex features fluted Corinthian columns and rich architectural detail.

A copper oxide finish applied to the concrete exterior creates depth and compelling colour variation, as green and bronze tones subdue the material's solidity, aided by the textures of layered vertical greenery.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
