1009. Stanhill 34 Queen's road, Melbourne

Dear Roy,

German architect Frederick Romberg was born in 
China and trained as an architect in Switzerland. He established his professional practice in Australia where 
he lived for more than 50 years until his death in 1992.
His masterpiece Stanhill Flats located in South
Melbourne, Victoria, was designed in 1943 and 
postponed due to the World War II until it was finsihed 
in 1950. Although this building is highly functionalist quickly became an architectural local landmark because of its wonderful expressionist design that resembles a colossal ship with its cantilevered balconies.
