The flats called #Banff in #FitzroyStreetStKilda, very interesting #creambrick, almost #Bauhaus lines (side wall more decorative). Built 1940, architects S & MC Nelson, who I’ve never heard of. It was all painted off white for maybe decades, but the smart body corporate stripped it all off about 15 years ago and it still looks great. More recently they’ve added the glass balustrades, new standards I suppose. The front flats very spacious, great views, the ones behind, not so much, but access via the lush garden is nice. And in a real innovation for 1940 it includes built in car parking ! Only pre WW2 example I know of. And it’s always had a Cafe as well. Photos 22 August 2019.
