Located in the leafy suburbs of Melbourne, this spacious family home has a unique street presence that's tough to beat

The home is situated on a leafy street in Melbourne's suburbs


Architect: Bryant Alsop

About the project: The owners brief required a new family home to be built on a relatively flat site in Melbourne's leafy eastern suburbs. They had always wanted a rendered house, and were looking for a clean, sharp design. The block runs east south, so a C-shaped plan was developed to catch the northern light.

A central, double height space sits adjacent this courtyard, allowing light to flood in to all parts of the house. The plan is zoned with older children having a self contained living space and bedrooms on the first floor to the rear of the property. Bryant Alsop Architects worked closely with Mil Constructions throughout the construction stage to achieve a high quality and resolved outcome.
