Meat Market, North Melbourne
Built in 1880 to the design of architect George Johnson – now a grade one heritage-listed building. Noted for it’s character-packed, ostentatious architecture with decorative ram head sculptures dotted throughout. Today, it’s fully preserved thanks to the Bracks government and now used as a performing arts space. George Johnson also designed other notable buildings including the Fitzroy Town Hall and St Kilda Hall.
Edgewater Towers, St Kilda
Australia’s first multi-residential apartment complex, designed to bring the Miami-style living to St Kilda. Designed by émigré architect Mordechai Benshemesh and completed in 1961, it’s the perfect time capsule of Mid Century Modern architecture in Melbourne.
RMIT Design Hub, CBD
Completed in 2012 to house RMIT’s School of Architecture, Design Hub’s minimalism architecture is designed to inspire the students to explore solar energy and environmental factors in their work.
