A rare history

Sitting just a stone’s throw from Parliament House in Forrest, 11 State Circle’s rarified position is steeped in political history.

Purchased by Sir Cyrus Lenox Simson Hewitt (Sir Lenox) in 1962 for £100, the piece of land would soon become home, as he balanced his role of owner-builder with that of secretary of the Prime Minister’s Department during the Gorton Government. His blue 1935 Chevrolet was a familiar sight to locals as he travelled State Circle between the building site and work in Barton.

Keggins will continue the narrative of 11 State Circle, building on the history of the iconic piece of land, with the past influencing the present. The site’s original structure, built by Sir Lenox and a crew of tradesmen from across the world, was designed with a European aesthetic to evoke memories of Geneva, which the Hewitts had once called home.

This global flavour lives on in the work of renowned Melbourne architects Parallel Workshop. Like its predecessor, the new development of nine expansive residences will incorporate sustainable, people-centric design with family and a strong connection to the local area at its heart.

It’s a fitting next chapter for such a rare piece of land.
