Heller Street Park Brunswick – a new model of inner-city housing
Just wanted to share a great piece last week from our friends at Assemble Papers on the Heller Street Park and Residences by Melbourne architects Six Degrees.
It’s quite a unique project for a number of reasons. Although perhaps the core of its success is summed up best by Heller Street Park resident and urban planner Damian… “often the criticism in living in medium density housing is that the design isn’t well considered and that it’s yield based and developer driven rather than design driven. I think the secret here has been that the design is something that has bought like-minded people together who in turn have wanted to cultivate and improve or maintain it over time.”
Look out for the next installment in Assemble Papers next week…
