From the architect: The Strathmore Residence is a bold and unashamedly modern addition to this suburban street. Its proudly austere frontage allows the quality of materials, workmanship and detailing to shine, surpassing the need for unnecessary setback or adornment.

A meditative water feature flanks the enticing entranceway, providing subtle articulation to this frontage. The material palette to the front is beautifully restrained yet not without intrigue; thanks to the natural patina of the zinc, coupled with the linear, yet arbitrary patterning of the cladding itself.

The natural and sustainable palette of zinc, timber and stone allows this home to sit proudly on its site. It is rich, both visually and texturally; understated, yet beautifully elegant. Most importantly it encapsulates family living, providing inspiring spaces both internally and externally.
