// 101 Maling
Canterbury, VIC 3126
/ commercial-public, multi-residential /
Maling Road has a rich and eclectic mix of historic buildings and styles that provide a diverse pallet of textures and materials throughout the precinct. The building forms are essentially decorated geometric volumes that are divided into small groups that continue the character of the precinct, with each having the historical language, ornamentation and narrative of existing architectural examples found along the Maling Road strip. This language alludes to the prospect of ‘the past’ being Maling Road, and ‘the future’ being the proposed building. These historical building typologies are represented through ornamental treatments to the façade, but simultaneously create an additional contemporary layer that provides a dual architectural narrative of the past and future.
