Three buildings are nestled into the landscape and have been assembled to reduce the scale of the built form and to fit more in keeping with its natural surroundings. The gentle curves of the precast and the separation between the buildings enable sightlines to Studley Park. The project is recognisable for its use of board-marked precast panels, large glazed window apertures, copper screening and extensive landscaping. As the building is cut into the Studley Park cliff face, access and sequencing the works was a significant challenge, requiring a tower crane for a large portion of the works. The materials chosen for the building have been selected to ensure that this building requires little maintenance and will stand the test of time. This will provide long-term benefits to its owners.
The home has some really well-thought-out, high-end features that are showcased throughout the home in such a unique way. Every main room has a statement feature piece incorporated into the design. Externally a combination of high-quality products have been used to complement every aspect of the front façade, from hardwood timber feature battens around the entry area to the San Selmo Corso Livenza Italian 50mm feature bricks wrapping around the corner of the home. Internally you can see the quality and craftsmanship. It features such as 3.3-metre ceilings, a timber feature wall separating the entry hallway, a gorgeous high-end kitchen, and a butler’s pantry.

The stylish interior renovation and external works of this double fronted Victorian home in Port Melbourne is testament to what can be achieved with some creativity and good old-fashioned know how. The works consisted of the partial demolition and refurbishment of the home as well the installation of new Hardie weatherboards on the facade and an extensive backyard makeover. Space and light were the key driver; to achieve this, large beams were installed in the ceiling space to open the rear floorplan and create open-plan living areas. New steel French doors were added to let in copious amounts of natural light. A new kitchen and bathroom complement the new spaces.
Located in the heart of Caulfield South, the semi-detached home was awaiting a makeover. Through the entry and passing two bedrooms, a new home office and study space is cleverly added. Continuing on to a bathroom of high ceilings and eye-catching design, to the addition of a full laundry and second toilet. One step down to the polished concrete floors and the true masterpiece, a kitchen, open dining and living. Timber clad raking ceilings, high windows, floor-to-ceiling doors, a space that feels as amazing as it does large, all while on a very modest footprint. The flow of the home leads all the way out to the backyard further enhancing the entertainment capabilities by opening to perfectly blend the outdoors and rear addition.
This project was designed to revive, modernise and extend a heritage-listed home and create a new double-storey extension, which complemented the original period home while introducing a touch of modern elegance. Elements from this period home, like the gables, stained-glass windows and fretwork, all needed to be replicated or restored with care. The home includes luxury comforts such as hydronic heating underneath the floors, a fireplace, strategically placed skylights and a large pivot window in the living room to guarantee ample light and air flow uninterrupted through the home. This home is a harmonious combination of old meets new, and the timeless design will surely last this family for generations to come.
As is typical for renovations to heritage buildings, the façade, front two bedrooms and hallway have all been retained and restored, while the extension and the addition of a second storey are set back from the street to minimise visibility from the front. The home takes a creative approach in maximising the space at the rear and has achieved a lot within the small confines of the property. Natural light was the guiding principle and was achieved by re-orienting the rear and adding new windows and skylights. A durable and tactile palette of materials runs consistently throughout the home, with pops of steely blues in the kitchen and living areas and soft greens in the bathrooms.
This project is lovingly described by the architect as The Little House That Could. Its location is flanked by beautiful old worker’s cottages and terraces and, through a thin veil of trees and shrubs, the busy sterile industrial precinct. The existing cottage sits centre-stage, expertly restored and already settled in. The new addition is visible only over the top of the existing façade, respectfully set back and designed to come alive at night, casting warmth outward from the home. The second expression is that of being open, light, and spacious – these qualities are rare to find in a Victorian cottage and are revealed in the generous and impressively engineered rear extension.
This project involved a major renovation to the existing Federation period home, including part demolition of the existing structure and constructing a two-storey extension. The extension was a combination of masonry walls and lightweight timber framing which were built on a substantial footing system. The floor was constructed in traditional bearers and joists opposed to a concrete slab, as this worked with the existing ground levels. The subfloor in the existing part of the building was completely replaced. Much of the plasterwork in the existing building was either restored or replaced with great care as to maintain the age and era of the existing building.
Boasting many features, this home has a spacious wine cellar, gym, pool, theatre room, lift, five fireplaces, underfloor heating and skylights throughout to allow natural sunlight into the home. Materials include imported stone from Italy, imported roof tiles from Spain to match the existing roof tiles, and recycled bricks to maintain and match the heritage facade. The property features state-of-the-art home automation that can be controlled via mobile, including a surround sound system around the pool and the theatre room. A concealed pool equipment room in the basement is hidden by a concrete render and curved wall.
With the housing market becoming increasingly challenging for first homebuyers to get a foothold on, the design team at Eight Homes wanted to help first homebuyers realise their dream of home ownership by creating the ideal first home that was attractive and stylish – yet affordable and functional. The 27.51 square s FIVE features four bedrooms and two bathrooms on display at the Highlands estate. The home offers homebuyers even greater choice by coming in three similar designs, all with additional floorplan options to better suit the buyer’s needs.
The Eight Homes design team created a spacious home with all of the amenities to cater for growing families in the s FIVE. The modern-day entry-level homebuyer market of the s FIVE comprises couples and young families who seek both togetherness and solitude, and the s FIVE delivers both in spades. A large open-plan meals/family zone is where everybody comes together at meals and relaxation times, while a separate living area and rumpus room invite peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of family life. The 29.9 square s FIVE features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three living zones, and an alfresco on display at Atherstone Estate
Flawlessly designed and meticulously appointed to inspire the classic and traditional residence, this home rests in beautifully landscaped gardens. Sitting on 507sq m, with its raised front porch façade with pinewood timber lining and brick veneer construction with the front of the house being fully rendered in Casper White, the Yang Display features four spacious bedrooms, three lounges, a double garage, a study, alfresco area and a spacious kitchen and butler’s pantry. The house was designed with an open-plan concept with a wainscotting feature all throughout the walls of the house, complemented by the hardwood floors with herringbone installation.
The Portsea is filled with astonishing features, generous walk-in wardrobes, oversized butler’s pantry, oversized Laundry, conveniently located study or workstation and the ultimate surprise of a second fully functional ensuite located off the second bedroom. All the living areas are quite spacious and well-balanced. The Kitchen offers many working options for any modern family, and the theatre room is tucked away yet still just as generous in size as any other room in the house.
The Miami 420 has efficiency in its design but does not comprise its style and grace. The home is the total package with five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms as standard, coupled with three living areas and a gourmet kitchen. Incorporated into the design is a magnificent void with 180-degree views across the house and ground-floor living areas that open simultaneously to the rear outdoor garden space. The oversized master bedroom, complete with a line of site privacy, is well supported by both its elegant ensuite and generous walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom is situated such that it can easily have internal access as a nursery should the owner desire it. Powder rooms, Laundry and storage, are all turned towards “blind spaces” so as to not interrupt the flow of the home.
At the height of luxury, the Malvern Grange 52 design is not one to be forgotten. The stunningly designed double-storey home oozes elegance that showcases excellence and premium style. This show-stopping double-storey features not one but two spectacular double-storey voids, bringing space and light to the Kitchen, family and dining areas downstairs and through to the generous lounge room upstairs. It features an open floor plan that is filled with functional spaces where families can flourish and enjoy a zoned layout. With four well-proportioned bedrooms, four bathrooms and four living areas, it boasts excellence and luxury in every corner. Downstairs features a multi-purpose room, and the upstairs living area is the perfect retreat for parents and any additional company.
Carefully designed to work with the cross fall of the site and focused around maximising the outlook to the beautiful oak tree in the central courtyard, this double-storey masterpiece showcases Latitude 37’s custom design capability and construction quality on a grand scale. The incredible outdoor entertaining area, which features a show-stopping horizon edge pool, spa, sauna, gym, covered barbecue, and outdoor seating area, has been carefully designed to be viewed from every part of the home. Juliet balconies in several areas contribute to a seamless indoor/outdoor flow. Latitude 37’s award-winning, in-house interior design team have set a new benchmark for modern urban living with striking textures of polished concrete and timber finishes and luxury fittings and fixtures throughout, all centred around the sculptural feature spiral staircase that greets you upon entry.
The Wollert project involved constructing a single-storey family home for a matured, close-knit family to host and entertain their extended family and friends. The design of the project concentrated greatly on open-plan living areas, which was achieved by having the living room, meals and Kitchen all adjacent to each other. The 240.0sq m home includes two living room spaces, a large alfresco and a double garage as well as a study nook catering to the members of the family who are still in school. This project also consists of four well-sized, cosy bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and close proximity to the main bathroom. Extensive amounts of effort were put into the charmingly designed landscaping as well as the grand aggregate steps leading towards the feature timber front door with integrated glass panels.
Originally an Art Deco style home, the decision was made to knockdown rebuild after working closely with the client and architect. The clients’ brief was to create a stunning family four-bedroom home. With a limited block size, the floorplan is simple yet effective and opens with a large Kitchen and living area to the rear. Recreating the Californian bungalow facade was paramount to fit into the neighbourhood character, but to the rear, there was a bit more creativity and play with more modern architectural elements. The conventional centred hallway with rooms off to either side was the most effective use of space. The advantage of the property backing immediately onto a playground and reserve meant the home could occupy more of the block, making space for an elevated alfresco.
The project is nestled in the heart of the popular coastal town of Inverloch. The builder combined with a local sustainable draftsperson, Derek Ashby, to create a home with quality craftsmanship, sustainable building methods and design. Built over two levels to maximise space with a small footprint, it includes two living zones, three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a double garage, European Laundry and a downstairs open-plan living zone which faces north and opens beautifully onto an outdoor entertainers kitchen, lounge and pool area. The home is a modern contemporary design and sits beautifully in the coastal environment of Inverloch.
The project involved constructing a double-storey family home for a large, mature family where they can express themselves in their own individual spaces and entertain their extended family and friends with multiple living areas and open spaces. The project is a six-bedroom home to suit the clients and their children to have their own quiet space with minimal distractions. This 455.9sq m dwelling contains a double car garage, a colossal alfresco with timber feature posts, and a state-of-the-art theatre room with a timber raised floor for elevated seating. The dwelling includes an open-plan living with the living room, meals, and Kitchen all adjacent to each other. This was topped off with a fully equipped butler’s pantry consisting of a double stainless-steel sink, four burner stove top and refrigerator, providing additional storage and the chance to prepare meals away from the main Kitchen.
This project begun on an empty property for a modern family holiday house. The house design is minimalist, which lets the construction and building design elements showcase how precision and accuracy can elevate a project. Features of this home include brick and timber cladding “barn style” silhouettes, Colourbond Matte surfmist roofing, polished concrete floors, extensive timber cladding to joinery and internal timber walls to provide seamless door reveals and natural features. Shou Sugi Ban cladding in the alfresco ceiling with a freestanding fireplace on a burnished concrete base. This home provides a place of rest and sanctuary for a busy family.
The northern aspect of the home is the main feature of the design, which has been resolved to capture the natural light and create a feeling of space and volume while still offering protection from the elements via the counterbalanced roof structure, which forms an eave. As this home formed part of a subdivision, living areas and spaces were carefully resolved, so there was a feeling of privacy between the dwellings. To help the home blend in with the landscape, the materials selected played a big part. Split face block work alongside a natural timber cladding helps create a feeling of texture and softness as it sits in among the landscape.
The client knew what they wanted to achieve, and the builder’s task was to make sure it was interpreted and executed without fault. In essence, it was to build them a home that they would be proud to spend their golden years. The home is a single-storey brick veneer with a tiled roof that is expansive and well-zoned to suit their way of living. The full-height windows and three-meter high ceilings allow for a light-filled luxurious home that captures views of the magnificent garden that complements the home's natural facade tones and materiality.
This family home has been designed to be respectful of the natural beauty of its bush surroundings in the Bellbird area of Blackburn. The floorplan was designed around the retention of all 41 existing trees, making use of the footprint of the demolished existing house with large setbacks to preserve this area of natural habitat. Natural shading and tree canopies became a key driver for the project - internal sightlines direct views to treetops above, flooding interiors with daylight. Angled roofs reach to the canopies, black timber cladding makes the greenery a focus. With a contrasting light palette internally, the house is centered around an open-plan kitchen/dining/living space, arranged to provide spaces for the family to share and spaces of solitude for individual pursuits.
The house’s material palette is a mix of rammed earth, Weathertex, polished concrete, Cemintel and Russian birch cladding seamlessly connected. The sweeping curve facing north starts on the eastern side, capturing the morning sun and completes its formation to the west. The northern façade is the soul of the house with the curved rammed earth walls and internal fireplace. The finishes are highly refined. Intricate tile work, well-crafted plaster, and the complete integration of the curved surfaces assure a rich experience for the residents. The Curved House hosts a variety of sustainable strategies, including an array of solar panels, hydronic in-floor heating, thermally broken windows, abundant natural daylighting and views to the surrounding landscape from almost every room.
Multi-faceted down to every small detail, this family home reflects architectural excellence through beautifully composed depth and vibrancy. With a striking palette of mixed resources throughout the home, this build echoes dimensional intricacies and character whilst balancing elements of minimalistic elegance. Unlike many other minimalistic modern homes, this home needed to feel light, airy and spacious; the design integrates plenty of natural materials, such as the Blackbutt timber flooring on the first floor, that gives each area a feeling of warmth. The client required plenty of room to play and grow and also includes a wine cellar, home cinema and six-car turntable garage. Achieving the perfect balance of sophistication and liveability, this home was designed with the entire family in mind, particularly the kids, with a full rock-climbing wall designed as part of the kid’s bedroom.
The design brief was to create a low-maintenance, modern family home that was intimate for the client as a couple but also spacious enough for them to enjoy with their adult children and guests who will stay for extended periods of time. There were three main elements to the brief - the design must provide for multiple living zones, which connect visually and physically with the outdoor spaces, so they could entertain small and larger groups, the home must accommodate four bedrooms, with the master suite feeling spacious and uncompromised like a luxury hotel suite, and that garaging was uncompromised. On a more specific level, the house needed to incorporate a home theatre room, a gym, and a work-from-home study.
This project included the demolition of the existing dwelling and the construction of a new residential house with a basement and three levels above ground. The basement includes an eight-car garage, store room, gym, sauna, services room, wine wall, wine tasting area, hidden theatre, Laundry, Bathroom and guest suite, which includes a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. The unique shape and contour of the site enabled a curved ground, first and second-floor plan, with a three-faced infinite/wet edge pool and spa on the ground floor located five meters above ground. The ground floor was broken into three zones – the east wing consisting of living, dining, Kitchen, a central helix staircase, powder room, study, coat room and the west wing, an entertainment room, curved bar, in-and-out Bathroom and outdoor Kitchen and dining. The first floor houses a second and third bedroom complete with ensuites, and the master suite with walk-in wardrobe and curved ensuite with a feature bath. The second floor consists of a store room, powder, kitchenette/bar and large rooftop deck extending towards Melbourne CBD.
Located in a leafy South Melbourne street, these glamourous corner apartments stand proud. Distinctive horizontal lines and curvaceous corners convey the area’s Edwardian to Art Deco heritage through contemporary architecture. Comprising three, three-bedroom plus study apartments, each occupying an entire floor, with rooftop living/dining and two small pools, the building offers a welcoming urban environment of great amenities. Each apartment further caters for an expanded lifestyle with independent access to a two-car garage, storage, water tanks, waste bins and bike parking. The top floor apartment’s pool incorporates acrylic floor panels that look through to the apartment’s dining room below.
The vision for Edition, Toorak was to create three individual residences with a level of opulence and a feeling of a large Toorak home, not a typical suburban multi-unit residential development. These were envisaged as homes in the sky that also blended seamlessly into the surrounding Toorak built environment. The result is a unique threesome of bespoke homes, each with its own take on elegance while retaining a consistent palette of materials. Each of the residences celebrates light and openness in its design, taking cues from the nearby Yarra River for the curved walls and staircases they each share. The façade features a tonal palette sympathetic to the brick of the local area by utilising Krause bricks, each handmade and laid for the project. Internally high ceilings celebrate the openness, and large windows ensure that every room is light-drenched. Bespoke finishing detailing coupled with high-end appliances and fittings ensure that quality is always front of mind.
Fenwick is a residential project in the most exceptional location in Kew overlooking Studley Park. The site deserved a building that embraced and enhanced its location. The project consists of three separate buildings (containing eight apartments and one four-level townhouse) located to capture views over Studley Park and situated over a substantial two-level basement. The project is recognisable for its use of board-marked precast panels, large glazed window apertures, copper screening and extensive landscaping. The three buildings are nestled into the landscape and have been assembled to reduce the scale of the built form and to fit more in keeping with its natural surroundings.
The Aspendale, Lowe Living project delivers a unique and premium seaside lifestyle just 30 minutes from the CBD and 20 minutes from the Mornington Peninsula. Four boutique buildings are interconnected, cultivating a sense of community and offering absolute privacy, security and direct beach access. With the relaxed ambience of a flowing indoor and outdoor lifestyle, this selection of 27 residences includes eight townhomes and 19 apartments, including ten beachfront apartments, redefining coastal living with large floorplates and considered robust materials that respond to the location.
This project embodies understated luxury; the internal space is softly defined using a curve motif, visible in the island bench and bar, whilst a restrained approach to materiality sees stone and a George Fethers wooden floor exist in delicate harmony. Mancini Made combines light dove grey joinery with silver ash stone and a darker floor, establishing a nuanced colour palette of surprising warmth. By using azure blue inside the amenity bar in the Kitchen – another unexpected element – a dynamic colour contrast is added to the entertainment space. Featuring high-performance appliances by Fisher & Paykel, the residence is adapted to the rhythm of domestic life.
The Kitchen has been designed for significant use as the owners are passionate cooks. Boasting an industrial theme - the Kitchen includes a black, white and concrete colour scheme with timber floor to tie in with the rest of the house and a continuation of the entry area. The minimalistic design features pop-up power points, a window splashback looking out to the garden area, and the island bench with black steel supports. The Kitchen is centrally positioned with a full view of the meals, living area and outdoor living areas.
Unconventional building methods are found throughout this project. Verde’s building methods greatly exceed today’s standards and the technical experience of Verde’s leaders and team is exemplary. Utilising finely detailed and tactile materials, fittings and finishes, each Verde project is defined by an obsession with quality, expressed through attuned junctions and an effortless flow and series of transitions throughout. Drawing on a classical approach in proportion and form, each project is conceived through a timeless lens, where an honest engagement with materiality, light and orientation ensures individual style and influence can be expressed while retaining a sense of legacy across generations.
Bringing the coast to the suburbs, this spacious and modern Bathroom has been re-invented and given a new lease on life. The brief was to create a stylish, coastal bathroom with textured subway tiles to be the main focal point while ensuring the room showcased a spacious, open plan. The use of matt cloud burst tiles on the walls and floor creates a contrast against the gloss, herringbone subway tiles assisting in reflecting light within the space. The luxe, oval mirrors give off a subtle ambience, while the modern softness of the curved, oak wall-hung vanity exudes style and sophistication. Brushed gold fixtures and an open, frameless shower screen complement the style.
This modern Bathroom was designed to complement the Kitchen. As with the Kitchen, this space required lots of light and needed to be open with a good flow. Being an apartment, the design includes an abundance of storage and maximises the available space. The Bathroom is open plan and includes a European laundry that can be closed off and hidden away easily. A completely modernised space with “wow” factor.
The project is a high-end luxury display home that showcases the design and execution of a Verde contemporary home. Constructed from the highest quality materials and finishes, each space is intended to flow effortlessly into the next, and through moments of pause, an open graciousness is felt throughout. The project was designed and constructed to showcase an example of what can be created for discerning clients looking toward their final and forever home wanting quality and lifestyle at the forefront.
