Melbourne Architectural Walking Tours

Melbourne Architectural Tours can focus on traditional buildings, contemporary buildings or both. The Melbourne Architecture Tour can be an introduction to the city’s main buildings or can be based around your group’s specific interests. We are happy to accommodate your needs and interests on our Victoria Architecture Tours.

e-architect can provide basic information to assist your programme preparations, for example on geographical areas in Melbourne and building types, ahead of your tour. For example a group interested in Melbourne office buildings could be provided with information before their visit to Victoria.

For older people who live independently in their own homes, maintaining relationships with their community is vital. When Jewish Care engaged DesignInc Melbourne to develop their new Anne and Eric Smorgon Active Living Centre in Caulfield, Melbourne, the brief sought a ‘connection centre’ that would enrich the lives of their community.

The Monash School of Biological Science project embraces our environmental responsibility to adapt existing building stock and in doing so addresses the question of what it means to re-skin an existing 1960’s modernist building in a contemporary manner. The project was undertaken as a collaboration between Kosloff Architecture, artist Callum Morton and Monash Art Projects (MAP).

Melbourne Buildings

Galleria Apartment Tower building designed by Plus Architecture:
Galleria Apartment Tower Melbourne Australia
image : Tom Roe
Taking the form of a cluster of buildings, the architectural structure of Galleria features sinuous curve forms that interconnect and loop – creating a dialogue between the building form and seeking to reduce the visual bulk of the development from the pedestrian point of view.

Flinders St Station Building designed by HASSELL (Australia), Herzog and De Meuron Architects (Switzerland):
Flinders Street Station Melbourne

The Australian/Swiss design team of HASSELL, Herzog and De Meuron won the Flinders Street Station Design Competition. A pairing of Herzog & De Meuron + HASSELL was always going to produce some magic, although the shortlist was very strong this combination of major architect studios stood out for me from the start. I think the city has made the right decision here, the design is both innovative and appropriate for the space.
