Kerstin Thompson Architects

Description

A guided walking tour that includes four Kerstin Thompson Architects (KTA) multi-residential projects located in Fitzroy. Each project is different in terms of size, scale, number of dwellings, and complexities. This walking tour provides a brief insight into KTA residential projects.

What's On

The tour will begin at Kerr Street Residences and will take you to George Street Residences, Church on Napier, and finally Napier Street Housing. Each project has its own unique story, and during the walking tour, you will learn about key design moments, insights and learnings. The tour will be led by a KTA team member, and questions during the walk are encouraged. There will be a brief overview given from the main street approach for each project.
