54-55 Queens Road
Melbourne

54-55 Queens Road is a 195 unit apartment development that overlooks Albert Park Lake and surrounds a heritage-listed, grand Italianate Victorian mansion. The development echoes the undulations of the surrounding parkland, essentially drawing the landscape into the built environment.

The building consists of a series of staggered, fluid forms that step down from the high-to medium-rise scale of St Kilda Road to the east, to the lower scale of Queens Road. On the southern side, the lowest levels are set back and the higher levels step forward to create a ‘notch’ in the façade, which acknowledges the presence of Grosvenor mansion. A three level podium provides interaction with Queens Lane, and also reflects and acknowledges the scale and masonry construction of the historic house.
