Pine Avenue
Elwood, Victoria | 2017
The distinctive façade of Pine Avenue by Cera Stribley draws reference to art deco through its curved brickwork and balanced details.

Throughout Elwood you will find a lot of Art Deco-inspired buildings. That comes from architecture in the 20s and 30s. Pine Ave has a bit of that flavour. Each house is planned to be as spacious as possible with openings at each end to allow cross ventilation and views from one end of the townhouse to the other.

Circular forms were a big part of Art Deco movement, so bringing that in was important – we’ve done that by curving the entrances. They are made up of white brickwork – another feature that was integral to the movement.

We have implemented a void over the entry, which means it’s actually a double height space as you walk in. The ability to communicate three levels and those feelings of space and light coming through from the top.
