Jolson’s curvilinear architecture is defined by a discrete, receding podium and layers of solid, natural materials which root the form to its garden surroundings, and to the area’s lineage of iconic heritage and modern architecture.
East Melbourne represents one of the oldest residential areas in the city and its iconic, tree-lined streets carry a legacy of culture, commerce and civility that endures today. Surrounded by gardens yet poised at the CBD’s edge, this small pocket of Melbourne affords residents a rich and balanced lifestyle that has been cherished since the city was born.
In an eclectic sample of the state’s architectural development, East Melbourne’s wide boulevards house some of the oldest Victorian terraces beside Federation-style institutions, Art Deco masterpieces and modernist landmarks.
The heritage-listed landscape of Fitzroy Gardens is a quiet oasis beside the city. Layers of greenery change with the seasons, tree-lined paths wind through luscious garden beds, fountains, and grassy parks in a verdant public space beloved by Melburnians for over 150 years.
