The final release in Richmond’s highly successful A place to live precinct makes a strong architectural statement for Biowood on the corner of Burnley and Victoria Streets, opposite the famous ‘Little Audrey’ Skipping Girl Vinegar sign.
Designed by SJB, built by Hamilton Merino, the building’s curvilinear forms create a graceful and distinct silhouette. Flowing external ribs partner with Biowood architectural shiplap low maintenance facades and glass to frame private open spaces, connecting the tranquillity of the Yarra River and William Reserve parklands with Richmond’s bustling streetscape.
A place to live appears to float above the ground. The fluidity of the building’s form, its contrasting façades and transparent entrance level actively engage passers-by. The dynamic, striking design of A place to live makes it a timeless addition to the vibrant skyline of inner Melbourne.
