Albert Park Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects

October 27, 2013 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.

From 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. A glazed walkway crossing the pond invokes a sense of fusion and transparency through the spaces. The rebuilding of double storey heritage stables used for accommodating vehicles and as a separate guest quarter corresponds with the Victorian street context to the rear of the site. This project was complex at every stage. Initially, during the design stage we had Heritage Victoria, local council, site constraints and an ambitious client brief to consider. The construction stage also presented difficulties due to excavation of pool and basement in a relatively confined area. The result is a complex yet permeable series of spaces that are rich in contrasting both the period and modern detailing. ”
