Garden and landscape are paramount features of the extension of this heritage-protected Victorian mansion. The additions involve a 6-car basement garage with terraced gardens built over plus the addition of a new kitchen, dining, living and laundry which extend from the old house on the ground floor. Landscape elements continue above with a master bedroom suite extension and adjoining rooftop garden, providing occupants a further link to the outdoor garden elements.

An extension to an unassuming rendered single storey house in a leafy Elwood street aims to capture as much light as possible through utilizing the orientation of a south facing property. Instead of the traditional backyard, the living spaces are intertwined with two courtyards that create different atmospheres and uses depending on the time of day; voids and skylights capture Northern light where possible. A reduced palette of materials consists of reclaimed brick, timber and metal screens. The inclusion of a perforated staircase and mezzanine also aids in creating an open and spacious home despite the small building footprint.

This four-bedroom residence is located on the outskirts of Healesville and has been designed to enjoy the benefits of modern living through the simplicity of its plan and interior. The floor-to-ceiling view to the outdoors helps to capture a spectacular aspect of the Yarra Ranges National Park. The rectangular prism form is punctuated by a series of courtyards that alter the scale of outdoor spaces. The courtyards are also carefully located to capture natural light and frame specific aspects of the landscape and sky.

Our in-progress Shoreham residence is a grand 6-bedroom pavilion house over two levels. Monolithic stone walls connect house to landscape and intersect the floating horizontal roof plane. Below the roof is a glass envelope open on all sides with views of ocean and country; from Point Leo to the olive groves of Shoreham. Natural and robust materials for the coastal environment such as zinc, concrete and locally sourced grey granite define the architectural form. These materials are offset internally by luxurious finishes of marble, brass and refined dark timbers.

This heritage project involves restoration and additions to a heritage listed bluestone manse in Williamstown. The 1856 manse will be restored to its previous glory and form the foreground to the new monolithic 3-level concrete residence to the rear of the property. A glass link will connect the new building to the old, giving space to the transition between, and open up the interior to views of garden and pool beyond. The new building will be constructed predominately from in-situ off-form concrete walls, with upper storey clad in stone to reference the heritage house in front.

Nestled into the side of a gently sloping rural landscape, this family retreat opens itself up to the tranquility of a secluded dam and forestry beyond. The spaces within the house are divided over three separate pavilions, distinguished by their differing floor levels, yet united by one continuous roof plane. Various outdoor areas have been thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of the climatic conditions no matter the time of day. Internally, two large fireplaces are the focal points of the communal living areas, warming the building on cool winter nights from the inside out.

Set within a 12 m wide property, this 4 bed family house is designed around a series of double storey parallel walls, juxtaposed with extensive glazing. The majority of the house is contained between the two predominant walls that are connected by concrete breeze block screens at either end. The ancillary blade walls contain the entry, upper hallway and stair.
Aspect and connection to the exterior has been carefully considered to maximise impact and atmosphere from all parts of the interior. A glazed double height void between the rear living room and breeze block screen creates a dynamic light filled space that also enjoys a full width view of the adjacent pool.

This magnificent example of a heritage Victorian home is located on a corner block lined with Oak trees and only a stone’s throw from the beach. A contemporary gabled pavilion containing the main living and entertaining areas is sympathetically linked to the existing house, providing understated luxury and modern functionality. Carefully considered landscaping by Jack Merlo will seamlessly integrate outdoor living and poolside leisure, creating a beautiful private oasis for the family to enjoy throughout the seasons.

We designed a new little studio and terrace to inject new life into this three bedroom family home’s backyard. The clients have a busy lifestyle and are avid art collectors, so the extensive green roof will function as a sculpture garden, whilst requiring a low level of maintenance.
