Interwar Beaconsfield Parade

A nice probably 1930s set of #SpanishMissionStyle flats in #BeaconsfieldParade – at least they would be nice if not for that clunky added ‘matching’ floor. Seems to have happened just after 2010, found a before image. Don’t know how it was allowed, since Port Phillip #heritageguidelines say additions should be under a line taken from the opposite side of the street (or under an 18* line in diverse streetscapes and the design is ‘contextual’). Seems completely rebuilt with more flats than before, some interior details retained – and a penthouse with views, you can see how much pressure there would be. But this one better if it was flat roofed and dark coloured. And what the hell happened next door ?? Only big applications actually go to council meetings so we don’t know what officers are thinking.
