Marne Street Apartments

45 Marne St is a bold contemporary concrete form sitting amongst Melbourne’s Heritage fabric. A lively and layered connection between the street and the apartments creates a sense of refuge and prospect. Circulation through the building has been amplified to form a double height “street” looking west. Peter Cole wall lights sites precious stones left by the street excavation. Internal plans are a careful study of contemporary inner city living.  Photographs by Shannon McGrath
