Colony Ridge

pb060331pb060332pb060333pb060334This is a housing development in Leederville, Architect unknown, but it is a delightful set of houses, probably late 60s I imagine. Strong forms, with bold roof lines, and prominent windows, set off by sculptural mouldings around all openings, bagged brickwork and great corbelling details. The letterbox is one of the best features, the cut away filled with hedge is excellent.
