This three-building complex demonstrates how well considered architecture can elevate a project to the status of urban place-making, with positive consequence for the precinct in which it is located. These simple box-like masonry structures address King, Lawrence and River Streets and quietly reinforce the streetscape and urban fabric of this historic neighbourhood without the need for superfluous design features.
