Development a jewel in Carlton's crown

The former Queen Elizabeth home for mothers and babies is a series of houses and outbuildings built between 1861 and 1951 clustered together on a large, irregularly shaped site. Architect Daryl Jackson, in consultation with Heritage Victoria, has been charged with the redesign and redevelopment of these buildings and the result is 20 residences, some large enough to be family homes, others more townhouse or apartment size suited to empty nesters.
