When Chard first approached the team at MCMP Architects to design Escher, it was with a clear vision: to design a building that would push the boundaries of modern architecture in Victoria and redefine what owners have come to expect from a new downtown home.
Drawing on Chard’s long history working with both owners and the city itself, MCMP produced a building as modern and dynamic as it is welcoming.
At 10 storeys and 84 suites, Escher’s bold lines and eye-catching mix of charcoal brick, metal, and high-efficiency low E windows are balanced by composite panelling and a grand but inviting two-story entrance. The effect is metropolitan, sophisticated, yet notably approachable—a striking portrait of the city which surrounds it.
“I think buildings should be of their time, and in the case of Escher, we wanted it to be a pioneer for Victoria. Forward-looking, modern in both design and materials, a bridge between Fairfield's quiet residential streets and the downtown core."
