Featured Project Description:

Hanover House is located on a busy intersection in a commercial part of Melbourne. It is also situated within walking distance from the National Gallery of Victoria, ACMI and the ABC studios - among other cultural institutions. It is visible to commuters, workers in neighbouring buildings and pedestrians walking to and from some of the cultural attractions within close proximity. The aim of this work is for it to exist as a new rendering of an existing, and likely overlooked, part of Southbank.
