The Rathdowne development is 4 inner city town houses built situated over two oddly shaped pieces of land separated by a lane on a disused petrol station. It is an iconic form proposed in a significant heritage area of Carlton overlooking the Exhibition Gardens. The concept was for four separate volumes that create houses rather than apartments. The two story form of each house is interwoven with the next maximizing the site’s triangular shape. The proposed materials of patterned brick integrate the modern form into its 150 year old neighbours.
