Bird de la Coeur Architects has built 151 Toorak Road in Melbourne, Australia.
151 Toorak Road is a 6 story office building with a ground floor restaurant occupying the corner of Darling Street on a restricted site in an inner-city suburb of Melbourne, on Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Country. It responds to its heritage neighbours with an innovative Flex Brick second-skin facade over a traditional brickwork base. The design is drawn from careful analysis of the brick patterning on the former 1890s South Yarra Post Office opposite, coupled with the need to protect the west facade from heat load, while maintaining views and a connection to the street.
