Ascot Vale

Ascot Vale House Melbourne Victoria
photo : Derek Swalwell
Mt Eliza House
Built by hand by the original owner, this 1940s period home in Ascot Vale is a labour of love. With all the grandeur to be expected of an art deco dwelling, the former building itself was quite modest in its construction, with just two bedrooms in the efficient arrangement.

Xavier House Hawthorn

Xavier House, Hawthorn Property
Located at the end of a dead-end street, Xavier breaks away from its neighbourhood context by eliminating a front fence – a simple gesture that allows the site to spatially appropriate well beyond its title boundaries. The house then, in this context, becomes the physical barrier between the public and private realms – a layered, folding screen.

The response to the Malvern East House design was to provide a distinctly different design to the existing heritage dwelling to identify the old from the new. It allows the heritage to stand apart and be recognised for what it originally was, a single storey bungalow. Sight lines and setbacks were essential from a heritage perspective.

POP-UP House, Essendon
POP-UP House attempts to counter the status quo of a new family home in a predominantly heritage setting. A common approach with new homes is to occupy most of the site whilst retaining a minimal front setback with a fortified sheer built form that shuts itself off from the public realm interface.
