Carr has been shortlisted in this year’s Design Anthology Awards for Bruce Street.

A finalist in the Commercial Spaces category, Bruce Street is an eight-storey building that is the first development of scale in the precinct.

An established authority on design in the Asia Pacific, The Design Anthology Awards showcases and celebrates design excellence across the region.

Bruce Street is a finalist in the Commercial Spaces category, which recognises excellence in architecture and interior design and realisation of spaces such as offices and co-working spaces.

Nestled between North Melbourne and Flemington, Bruce Street is uniquely placed to rejuvenate Kensington’s historical industrial wedge. Defined by its streets of red brick warehouses, towering grain silos and the Younghusband woolstore dating back to 1901, the new commercial building designed by Carr is the first development of scale in the precinct.

Delivering both the architectural and interior design elements, our architectural and interior design responds to the vernacular of the existing fabric of Kensington and nearby warehouse buildings.


The winners of the Design Anthology Awards will be announced in Tokyo on Monday 23 October 2023.
