Kensington Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects

Kensington Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects

From Architects : ” An industrial backdrop provides an inspiring location for this refined, full width extension to an existing triple fronted Victorian. The existing house was demolished beyond the front four rooms and a large 15m wide extension spanned nearly the full width of the site. A palm tree placed in the central Castlemaine stone walled courtyard beside a 12m lap pool provokes a sense of oasis and escape from the industrial context. This residence forms part of a larger development that consists of boutique office suites and apartments that were constructed within the grounds of the previous residence and adjoining warehouse. ”

South Melbourne Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects

South Melbourne Residence

From Architects : ” This new building was created on a compact infill site in a business zone. This allowed NMA to discard the usual constraints associated with development in residential precincts. The 3-storey residence is built to all boundaries with the living/entertaining areas placed at the highest level to provide occupants with a sense of outlook and ventilation in a built-up area. The floating plywood lined roof is up-lit at night, providing a warm lantern effect that is highly visible from its surrounds. ”

December 17, 2009 By: Category: Modern House Design

From Architects : ” The site is close to mass transit and community services. The plan allows them to gracefully age without having to move or remodel. The kitchen is laid out to promote a better diet. Storage is designed to decrease waste and over-consumption. And, of course, everything in the building is the most energy efficient possible. ”
