Assembly Apartments in Melbourne
Modern Residential Development in Victoria, Australia – design by Woods Bagot, Architects
23 May 2017
Architects: Woods Bagot
Location: North Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Assembly was conceived as an assemblage of four individual buildings on an elevated site akin to a village on the hill to create a medium-density residential community.
Dividing the built form into a collection of small-scale buildings created a more human-scale environment, with a focus on community and connection to nature.
Responding to North Melbourne’s rich urban fabric, a playful composition of zinc metal angular pitched roof forms that extend seamlessly to become walls take cues from the surrounding heritage neighbours pitched roof vernacular.
The individuality of each building is sculpturally expressed as a carved block through the use of machine crafted metal and zinc cladding, curated window openings defined by a metal extrusion providing shading and privacy, and together with exposed concrete produces a light-industrial aesthetic with a strong contemporary edge.
