The brief was to create an exciting family home on this expansive, sloping property in one of Melbourne’s premier locations. The challenge was to design a house conducive to large-scale entertaining that maintains a welcoming sense of warmth suitable for more intimate gatherings and family life.
The dramatic impact experienced upon arrival is heightened by the water features and multi-leveled terraces that surround the home. Careful placement of the outdoor facilities, including a tennis court, swimming pool, pool pavilion and formal gardens create vistas from every aspect.
The floor plan purposefully separates the sophisticated living areas from the more casual family zones without diminishing the sense of flow throughout the house. Consistent throughout is the use of the highest quality materials and finishes.
Thomas Hamel of Sydney created the timelessly elegant interiors and soft furnishings.
