Late Modern in St Kilda Road

A fine bit of #latemodernism, probably early 1980s, just slick aluminium panels and mirror glass windows. I think if it was in the CBD, it would be better known and appreciated, but here in B class office land, you just go past. No 468.

I kind of admired this one on St Kilda Road ages ago for its interesting angled cut outs/ legs in the corner, but actually apart from that it’s just a big box. And there’s the annoying canopy stuck on later that’s tries but fails to match. Relatively nice taut aluminium/glass curtain wall, making it much more Late Modern than Postmodern. By #MeldrumAndBurrows, 1983. This is one of the tallest/biggest from the 80s, when not that many went up the full permitted 60m / 16 storeys. Thanks Simon Reeves for the info.
