This is the delightful Wandana flats in Subiaco, designed by Krantz and Sheldon in 1953. It is public housing and  it is beautiful, and showcases so many of K+S design ideas. the floating balcony balustrade panels, of contrasting colours are so well done, and a signature of the practice. The rhythym achieved through the fenestration, and repetitive elements are fantastic, and create a large monumental  building. The entry statements are all so strong, and such pure expressionist modernity.I love the lettering, the open spaces, it all works so well.
