An extensive mixture of architectural styles characterizes this densely populated South Yarra street, from traditional pitched-roof weatherboard balconies to flat-roofed made block-work apartment structures. Narrow structures sit tightly side-by-side across the one-way street.
Light-filled spacious internal spaces maintain strong connections to the outside of your building and also the home’s multiple courtyards, clouding internal/exterior limitations.
Concentrating on volume, colour and sun light admission, instead of on applying costly materials, positively influenced the project budget. Use of colour towards the built form encourages the occupants to understand more about further implementation of colour through furnishings and artworks.
Financial restrictions avoided inclusion of basement vehicle-parking. Architect and interior designer labored collaboratively use a home with integrated internal and exterior spaces. The project website is north-south oriented, necessitating a design that minimises sunlight transmission yet maximises admission of sun light. The very first-floor ‘box’ is cantilevered within the rear courtyard, supplying fixed shading from direct summer time sun towards the open plan family room and kitchen. Upstairs its northern border facing retreat home windows are recessed back inside the orange volume, developing a balcony with built-in shading. The abundance of sun light combined with installing electricity-producing solar power panels (that also supply electricity to the power grid) serves to lessen the home’s energy consumption, and double glazing home windows and fully insulated walls minimise warmth loss and gain.
