Albert Park is one of Melbourne’s more prestigious suburbs. It has that iconic lake as well as a palm-fringed beachside boulevard and is most famous for being the home of the Australian Grand Prix. The architecture in Albert Park is a mix of Victorian and Edwardian terraced, semi-detached and freestanding housing, with a few apartments and new homes. Albert Park has some of the most stunning properties in Melbourne.
We have helped update or transform many beautiful terraced homes using plantation shutters, roller blinds and blockout curtains. As the blocks tend to be smaller than some more suburban blocks further from the CBD, we commonly use folding arm awnings to extend the indoors by creating outdoor rooms. All of these options are available with motorisation for the ultimate convenience.
