South Yarra 2
Designed by Susi Leeton Architects, this grand residence has been transformed into a sophisticated urban oasis and family retreat.
Sinuous curved white walls wrap the exterior of the modern extension, contrasting dramatically with the solid grandeur of the existing Victorian dwelling.
Tall glazed steel doors and windows afford extensive views of lush garden spaces wrapping the building. In a nod to modern and ancient Italian design, hand crafted geometric marble flooring extends to a private courtyard and overlays a casual seating area.
Bronze clad kitchen cabinetry and a Japan Black oak floor contrast dramatically with light family spaces whilst complementing adjacent living rooms in muted colour. There is a high level of attention to craft and detail in every element of the build, whilst reverence for the heritage fabric of the home is reflected in the creative marriage of old with new.
