Project
16 Apartments with Basement Car Park and a Shop. Includes the Renovation and Extension of Three Existing Old Style Flats above Six Shops on Lower Heidelberg Rd.
Completion
2012

The design of The Burton project was influenced by the Art Deco style which is quite common in the Ivanhoe area. A 1940’s group of 6 shops, which has three old style flats above them, hides this new development from a busy Lower Heidelberg Rd. The new development is four levels high inclusive of a partial basement car park. The new building links with the existing shops and flats and provides a smooth visual transition from old world to new. The development comprises of 16 apartments and a shop on the ground floor which is now a bustling café. The apartments are a mix of one and two bedrooms with generous spaces in the living and kitchen areas. The scope of work also included the renovation and addition of the three old style flats above the shops which resulted in the flats gaining a third bedroom, larger kitchen and living areas, along with extra-large external deck areas. This was all done whilst the shops were still operating. The Burton is a beautiful example of a new building that comfortably blends in with its existing old world streetscape.
