The brief

Our clients from Kew East approached us with a clear vision of finding their forever home, one that would perfectly accommodate their family of five. Emphasizing a sleek and modern style, they were keen on creating a contemporary living space that would reflect their vibrant personalities and also cater to their love for entertaining guests. With three children, it was essential to design a home that could comfortably accommodate their family’s needs while also providing a stunning backdrop for their social gatherings and memorable moments together.

Our approach

This beautiful North facing block offers a private rear access to bike paths and parkland. The design includes a semi-sunken garage, allowing for a raised north facing open plan kitchen, living, and dining area. The impressive room overlooks the entry atrium, pool, and alfresco, creating a sense of grandeur to the home. To maintain privacy from the street, the living space is elevated atop the semi-sunken garage, reminiscent of brownstone terraces, and privacy is enhanced with vertical battening.

We aimed to create a courtyard living ambiance by wrapping the home around a grassed alfresco and pool area, beautifully framed by the rumpus room and the open plan living space, offering a seamless indoor-outdoor flow.
On the lower level, you’ll find a guest bedroom with an ensuite and a separate powder room for convenient access from the pool area. The Master suite is thoughtfully positioned at the rear of the lower level, with its private rear garden space. It boasts a unique feature—an ultra lift tilt-down ceiling mounted TV that cleverly hides away when not in use.

For sound insulation between the floors, we utilized Hebel flooring, effectively minimizing sound transfer between the levels.
Moving upstairs, an inviting formal living space is accessible from the atrium and features an exterior reflecting pool, which not only brings in natural light but also serves as a luxurious talking point. The children’s bedrooms are thoughtfully placed on the upper floor, along with a shared bathroom and an additional ensuite.

The basement garage offers ample space and is well-equipped with a gym, laundry, bike racks, and an additional storage room, ensuring convenience and functionality throughout the home.
