I instantly fell in love with the Sirius Apartment buildings in the Rocks and had the good fortune of walking by them several times while we were in Sydney. It turns out that these Brutalist apartments were designed by Tao Gofer in 1978 as experimental low-income public housing. The units apparently all have roof gardens, the roof of one unit becoming the garden of the unit overhead (a concept BIG utilized its in Mountain Dwellings in Copenhagen).
