Glen Iris | 2017
Interior Design, Multi-Residential
Domenic Cerantonio, Matt Hainsworth, Steve Woo
Located in the lush Glen Iris locale, The Rose development is two thoughtfully designed townhouses. Mindful of the sensibilities of the neighbourhood, the design intent is to create respectful, bespoke houses with a unique geometric form and crisp detailing.
Material junctions juxtapose and contrast each other, enabling the light to reflect on the different architectural elements in unusual ways at various times in the day. Throughout the design, there are pockets which highlight the relationship between the built form and its surrounding sloping streetscape, creating a desirable harmony between the two.
The simple and muted material palette highlights the power of curated material selections; both the interiors and architecture cohesively working together to articulate a contemporary outcome and emphasise the use of rich timbers and stones. A signature volume on the above level represents an opening to the streetscape, however, still warrants a relatively private street frontage and framed view. The design has also employed open plan methodologies throughout, enabling flexibility and providing connectivity between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
