Markham Avenue wins at the Victorian Architecture Awards

Markham Avenue has won an Architecture Award in the Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing category at the 2024 Victorian Architecture Awards.

 

Each year the Victorian Chapter celebrates design excellence across the state. We’re honoured to have been recognised for a pioneering state government project that has delivered critical social and affordable housing to the community.

One of the first projects to be delivered under Homes Victoria Big Housing Building, Markham Avenue has set the benchmark for quality, well-designed social and affordable housing. The universally accessible, equitable and socially sustainable precinct has created 178 welcoming new homes, which are already creating positive outcomes for renters and the surrounding community.

Highly considered master planning has protected the site’s established trees, maximising retention and integrating with the riparian character of Gardiners Creek. The mature landscape settles the new apartments into their home with a sense of permanence and belonging. 

An exemplar of durable design – robust brick detailing was used to create texture and personality within a classic and elegant arrangement of form and space.

Congratulations to all the outstanding entrants in this year’s Victorian Chapter Awards. A special thank you to Homes Victoria, Mala and our talented project team for their incredible commitment to designing and delivering a precinct that has already had a significant and positive impact on its residents and the local community.

Markham Avenue is also shortlisted for ArchitectureAU’s Social Impact Award.
