Blake Residence in Melbourne, Australia by FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

This original 1970’s home was transformed into a striking modernist home totally unexpected in the more conservative Caulfield area.

A combination of Dado Render and Woodform Timber Batons on a curved wall creates the first impressions of this property, a far cry from the original façade that was dominated by a tin shed and a driveway.

A pivot door opens to the welcome area with curved walls that guide you to an impressive corridor with high ceilings and a gigantic view of the sky. All the doors off the corridor sit flushed against the wall, hung with pivot hinges and negative detailing surrounds. The bespoke timber circular door handles has an irresistible tactile quality that adds warmth to the space.

Located in Melbourne’s leafy suburb of Ivanhoe, this once traditional family home has been transformed by the Studio into a modern interpretation of a Hamptons’ style of living – an aesthetic that combines a relaxed sophistication with airy elegant living.

To meet their requirements, we designed a spacious open-plan home that embraced the abundance of natural light, to not only make it welcoming but also visually impressive and highly functional.

Alfred House in Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

In a Nutshell

Alfred House is an addition and reconfiguration of an existing two storey, two bedroom terrace, with a tired lean-to that had little relationship with the exterior space. The client wanted us to replicate one of our previous projects, Vader House, as they liked the idea of a centralised courtyard.  It was an interesting idea for us to revisit and to evolve, as we were able to push the concept further due to the property’s connection with the laneway. The big challenge was that Alfred had less than half of Vader’s budget.
