Evolving Port

Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend continue to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new forms of housing take their place. Port Houses records some of these changes.

Boundary St, Port Melbourne

April 2019

This striking, site responsive house on the Port Melbourne side of Boundary St was recently written up in HomeWorldDesign.

It responds well to its brief which was "to design a striking, modern house that made the most of the small site and yet responded to the neighbouring urban fabric and location."

Chan Architecture's response was "to start with materials and forms that were prominent in the Port Melbourne area and combine them in a unique manner. Strong, angular lines were used in conjunction with recycled brickwork that made reference to the warehouse aesthetic and the metal cladding and rectangular forms related to shipping containers."

The recycled bricks are warmed by the autumn sun - April 2019
The recycled bricks continue the brickwork theme down Boundary St.
