The suburban Hue Apartments project imagined by Melbourne-based studio Jackson Clements Burrows floods an industrial scene with a serene and private atmosphere. Rising in between brick warehouse buildings surrounding it from three sides and opening towards a row of residential yards, the modern structure in the Richmond suburb of Melbourne reshapes its surroundings.
Focusing on creating a diverse “hybrid” building with a customized floor plan and beautiful glass louvres and timber walls, architects beautified the whole block. Elegance and openness towards the hard earned sunlight make these Melbourne apartments a community united by the same wish for privacy. The interiors were splashed with color under different forms: furniture, artwork, pillows.
Visual creativity unifying suburban apartments
Dark stained cedar cladding dresses the building in a visual sumptuousness, while the facade book-ending the building displays piercings of light. These rounded windows create a visual connection to the circular concrete planters below. A beautiful building deserves a beautiful street facade.
