Turkish Consulate Residence
Turkish Consulate Residence, Toorak, Melbourne
The Turkish Consulate Residence in Toorak, Melbourne is both a home and a cultural representation of the Republic of Turkey. The design achieves a sense of cultural style while being respectful of the local area's architectural dialogue, and the building's modern form is contrasted with subtle ornate details, referencing a Turkish aesthetic. Precast concrete and glass compose the structure, each material subjected to a decorative or textural treatment: the concrete has a repetitive engraved pattern while glass provides a palette for exquisitely hand crafted tulips.
