Albert Park Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects

October 27, 2013 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design

Designed by Nicholas Murray Architects, Juxtaposing heritage materials and form with a post-modern language can be challenging. In this project an honest approach was taken by restoring the front four rooms of an Italianate Victorian double fronted house and returning it to its original splendor. A full width linear pond marks the transition to the modern more informal living spaces which flows onto the garden and lap pool.

The steepness of the rectangular site has resulted in a verdant and mature landscape consisting of a mixture of native and exotics, which created the opportunity to place the house within a rich landscape environment.
