Modern single household residence designed by Pleysier Perkins, situated in Melbourne, Australia.
Description by Pleysier Perkins
A two storey extension to a basic Edwardian villa in Malvern East’s heritage Gascoigne Property, which features a double storage, open plan dwelling space and main bedroom on the bottom degree, with a research and visitor retreat on the primary flooring.
The north dealing with dwelling ‘pavilion’ consists of full peak glazing and an adjoining loggia characterised by a round void and have marble wall that gives a focus from the unique entry corridor. A zinc fascia caps the pavilion and wraps over the primary flooring visitor retreat and terrace in a robust formal gesture that architecturally ties the 2 ranges collectively.
Whereas fairly constrained, the fabric palate performs on robust textural contrasts and consists of zinc, concrete blockwork, marble and bluestone, at the side of a white inside and timber flooring.
The toilet and ensuite are function rooms – beneficiant zen areas with expansive views to lush personal gardens.
Designed in collaboration with Jack Merlo Design, the backyard areas embrace a plunge pool, garden, vine clad partitions and quite a lot of planted courtyards that combine seamlessly with the structure and contribute to a up to date dwelling setting that unfolds unexpectedly upon entry into the unique Edwardian villa.
