Design for Urban Living

Park House

I love this home Melbourne home, as it has the great mix of materials, fluid spaces and light. Designed for clients with a love of horticulture, each level has an landscape element, thereby providing an intimate connection to nature in this crowded residential neighborhood. This sculptural building of 3500 sq ft provides a lot of visual impact.

Check out the integral hand rail and painted metal balustrade.

Curved wall in the ground floor family room allows light to flow uninterrupted, without a harsh shadow line. Curves of the rug and tables echo the wall.

Poured terrazzo floors and wood ceiling add visual comfort in this minimal space.

I love the glass and metal vitrine in the dining room.

Green walls provide color, texture and a touch of nature to small urban homes. I’m a fan!

The shelf of the living room continues out into the garden, providing visual connection and seating in the two spaces.
