Athol and Gowrie: 330-332 Punt Road, South Yarra. Melbourne, Victoria

Athol and Gowrie, a pair of single storey Italianate terraces on Punt Road, stands bastardised as an example of what happens when you denude a terrace house.  The balconies have been removed for as long as I can remember, however the trees which once obscured these terraces from the street have been removed more recently and replaced with a paved carparking area, as has the 1960s style awning which were once over the doors and the pastel blue paint which gave it the appearance of a pokey run down cabaret venue.  The plainness of the facade without the verandah is quite evident, however there is a sense of grace in its current incarnation with its simple, almost Georgian like symmetry and cream paint accentuated by the addition of an equally minimalist cream wall.
