A typical block of 1960s Melbourne flats, each typically comprising a living area, a bedroom, a bathroom and kitchen. These ageing buildings are often derided for being unattractive, utilitarian and cheap. But these buildings also have design features we have come to celebrate: narrow footprints that allow cross ventilation, flexible floorplans, minimal use of shared walls, low-maintenance design and a modest human scale. We seldom find these features in apartment developments today...

GOTHIC

This mosaic features the former English, Scottish & Australian Bank (now ANZ ‘Gothic Bank’) at 382-392 Collins Street (north-east corner of Collins and Queen Streets). This edifice is considered to be the finest secular Gothic Revival building in Australia. It was erected as the head office of the ES&A Bank in 1883-87. The top two floors were the residence of George Verdon, general manager of the bank, and an enlightened patron, who commissioned noted architect William Wardell, and together they created this masterpiece.

The flat stone exterior is punctuated by delicately elaborated openings, those of the first floor porches in Venetian Gothic tracery. Inside, the banking chamber is a tour-de-force of rich Gothic imagery and 19th century technology – the columns, ribbing and sculptural capitals are all made of iron. Verdon’s residence above remains substantially intact (also lavishly ornamented), and was occupied by the women only Lyceum Club in the 1920s. The bank expanded in 1922 to occupy the adjacent buildings on both streets, and the banking chamber was seamlessly extended into the former Stock Exchange.
