North Melbourne

This house occupies the site of a former cheese factory in the inner city suburb of North Melbourne. The home is surrounded by an eclectic mix of buildings: to the east is a three storey 1950s cream brick apartment block; to the west a two storey Victorian terrace house; the eastern boundary is a mixture of brick warehouse buildings, and opposite is a 1860s bluestone church. It is fitting, therefore, that the mixture of domestic and industrial design engages with all of its neighbours.
