ratio: is excited to have been involved in Fieldwork’s latest development, located in South Melbourne. The eight storey office building includes a ground level food and drink premises.

This contemporary design used solid brickwork at podium level to anchor the building, and to provide a nod to the industrial history of the precinct.

The site is covered by a complex Design and Development Overlay (DDO) that Council was essentially treating as mandatory. In this application the Tribunal agreed with the proposition that whilst the DDO provided criteria that would meet the design objectives of the control, a contextual response could also be applied to consider something different.  

We look forward to this building coming to fruition.
