Our Cloud in the Sky – Debney Housing Estate

For most of Wellington Street, looking towards the east you can see a huge white/blue ‘cloud’ structure on top of the Holland Court Housing Commission block. This is a third lift, completed in 1995 by Ashton Raggatt McDougall architects as a small replica of Oscar Niemeyer’s St Francis of Assisi cathedral in Brazil, and is meant to ‘suggest real recreation functions such as a swimming pool, a gym, or even a restaurant.’ Since being built in the 60s, the Housing Estate, adjacent to Debney’s Park, has enhanced the multicultural mix of Flemington.
