The brief

Our clients approached us with a specific request for an architecturally designed home that would command a strong street presence, with echoes of the suburbs architectural heritage. A family of four, they had resided on the prominent East Ivanhoe site for an extended period and sought a substantial improvement for their new residence. Their vision encompassed a home with versatile spaces designed for relaxation, work, entertainment, and to accommodate their shared passion for music.

Our approach

The residence comprises four bedrooms and four bathrooms, including an opulent master ensuite complete with a sauna and a freestanding bathtub. The combined kitchen, living, and dining areas showcase a corner landscape gas Moda fireplace with a polished concrete render accentuating the feature wall. Throughout this space, Arte Domus Faustus Marble is elegantly featured, with a stunning waterfall island bench serving as a focal point for gatherings with family and friends.

For avid cooks, a well-equipped butler’s kitchen was deemed essential, equipped with a Fotile professional automatic rangehood and dual Siemens Gas and Induction cooktops.

Responding to the client’s specific needs, a fully provisioned lower ground office space with a dedicated street entrance was incorporated to accommodate their accounting business. This adaptable area has been thoughtfully designed to easily transition into a multigenerational living space in the future.

The expansive music/formal living room boasts a soaring 5-metre cedar ceiling, providing an acoustically pleasing environment for the featured baby grand piano to harmoniously resonate within the space.
