In this densely populated South Yarra street there is a broad mix of architectural styles, ranging from traditional pitched-roof weatherboard terraces through to flat-roofed rendered block-work apartment buildings.

Plots of land are narrow and as such buildings sit snugly side-by-side along the narrow one-way street.

The aim of the project was to provide the client with a residence that would not only make a statement within the eclectic streetscape, but would also afford light-filled and spacious internal spaces, which maintain strong connections to the exterior of the building and the home’s multiple courtyards.

The methodology employed to meet these aims included focusing on the implementation of voluminous forms, building to the site perimeter wherever possible, installing glazing to multiple and varied planes, and applying colour to engage the viewer and provide continuity between both internal and external spaces.
