Napier Street for Milieu

Freadman White

Napier Street is a collection of 14 individual owner-occupied apartments. A stone’s throw away from Fitzroy’s Brunswick Street, it sits adjacent Whitlam Place Apartments.
Existing materials common to the area include brick, concrete, render and timber. Our reinterpretation of this materiality and historic urban fabric has not been a literal prosaic response, rather drawing on a collective memory of forms and materials, layered through subtle shifts of formal play, articulated with soft planting, timber, steel, brick and concrete.
