Architecture Melbourne Query

Query: who was the architect?


I am trying to find out who the architect was for this white building at 54 Anderson Street, South Yarra,¬† located behind the Melbourne Botanic Gardens and opposite Guilfoyle’s Volcano at Gate C.

Does anyone know? Please use the reply below to let me know.



And there’s a review of the new landscape work on Guilfoyle’s Volcano¬† – click here

  1. I’m guessing you found the answer to this question long ago, but just in case you didn’t, the architect was Barry Patten of Yuncken Freeman architects. I have been researching the same building myself..

      1. Actually I believe the architect was Roy Simpson. Simpson, like Patten, was a partner at Yuncken Freeman (the firm had a number of names) but Patten was more involved with commercial projects. Simpson won a Royal Australian Institute of Architecture Gold Medal for his contribution to architecture..
