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
Worl 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.

Cheers,
R
