Graffiti-Inspired Architecture in Melbourne

By - Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

This apartment building is the first in a series of “Hip Hop Buildings” designed by Zvi Belling of ITN Architects. It is a joint development by the architect and his neighbor Melbourne graffiti writer Prowla of the Rock Da City graffiti crew, both of whom now reside in the building. The name of the building, “Hive,” appears built into the facade. Designed from the outside in, the angles of the letters determine some of the wall shapes and interior spaces. Gaps between letters create small windows which let light into unexpected places, while sliding panels conceal rooms.
