Restrained yet lush

“On one of the largest single residential sites in this bayside suburb, this project sought to restore and rehabilitate an expansive single level dwelling in a generous garden as well as provide additional accommodation.  The high level heritage status of the existing house and the visibility afforded by a corner site prompted us to design a sober and refined pavilion, sited to preserve the large swathe of garden and clad in weathered copper shingles and bronze shutters to reference both the hawthorn bricks and slate roof of the existing dwelling. “

Love the restrained interiors. Love the lush garden (by Eckersley Design). Love the connections between the two. Love the separation of public and private spaces and the luxurious material palette. Bayside Manse by Melbourne-based architects Kennedy Nolan.
