Too contemporary, South Melbourne

Original post 22 May 2020

I dont hate it but I don’t like it much – a new thing in Coventry Street #SouthMelbourne opposite the market – a lack of imagination and relationship to context, I mean this black brick and the pierced brickwork, it’s just 60s revival popular, they could have had fun with bricks given the polychrome number next door. But then I suppose most people don’t have much imagination, everyone buys the same clothes, the same cars and kitchens don’t they ? Update : it’s a heritage area, @cityofportphillip said no (I think), it went to VCAT, Council didn’t have a heritage expert there but the developer did, and it was approved !
