The brief

Our client is a family of four looking for a warm and welcoming home with space for a pool and alfresco on their narrow block. The client’s are medical professionals with busy lives and two young girls so space for the girls to grown and play as well as spaces for shift working parents to find rest were important in this design.

Our approach

The East Ivanhoe home’s narrow site played a crucial role in creating a home with a distinctive flow. A private study is tucked away off the entry hall allowing a professional space for work and study. The kitchen, living, and dining areas open up to the alfresco and rear garden while sheer window finishes and a large storybook window provide picturesque views of the pool area.

Upstairs, the family can retreat to a spacious rumpus area that separates the children’s rooms from the parents’ quarters. The master bedroom boasts a stunning city view from its feature window, and a roomy walk-in wardrobe and dressing area offer privacy for those who work night shifts.
