Burnett Lodge, nice garden

Repost 2019:

Looks like 30s #creambrick #earlymodern flats in #StKilda – but actually it’s 1959 ! #BurnettLodge in Burnett St. Thanks to whoever did the wiki page on #MordechaiBenshrnesh, I can see that most of his projects pick up the ideas of 1920s European avant-guard, very plain rectilinear unadorned, I guess from his training in Tel Aviv in the early 30s no doubt by recently arrived architects from Germany etc. This block has a great common garden in front, which I remember as just open lawn, now it’s all lush, you’d want one of the flats address it, rather than one of those that screws the side – though that’s north. Plain inside, but there’s a communal roof !
