“Piccolo House by Wood Marsh charms with its façade in autumnal tones”
“The multi-use building’s unique island site allows its architecture to be expressed along all its faces. Apart from housing private tenancies within, the original Victorian terrace building that addresses Dorcas Street was restored and reinstated as an active commerce centre contributing to the streetscape, connecting with the neighbourhood.
“The Charles Street laneway references Richard Giblett’s paintings on the contemporary metropolis and reinterprets it into physical urban art using the materiality of Corten and various shades of steel. By night this intervention becomes illuminated, drawing similar ideas to the artwork of Dan Flavin, by painting the street surface with light. The illumination of Charles Street also creates a sense of safety through passive surveillance,” says the firm.”
