Toorak Residence | Architecton

This four bedroom private residence rigorously pursues a balance of elegance and relaxation. The formal refinement and spatial fluidity propel the living spaces to the height of luxury and repose. An urban oasis in the heart of Melbourne’s most prestigious address. The client’s brief was for a minimal yet welcoming home with fun, quirky elements. The architectural design needed to ensure to creation of a beautifully striking residential address. Architecton approached this project with a strong belief that the design needed to generate a dwelling with drama and excitement through the use of scale, volume, elegant materials and clever design solutions. The Toorak Residence maximizes the potential of the site whilst remaining sensitive to the existing streetscape and the socio-economic character of the affluent Melbourne suburb. The outdoor area was designed to accommodate a large pool that fits beautifully into the marble tiling. The use of outdoor greenery and an all whitecolour palate gives the outdoor space the impression of an exotic oasis located in inner-city Melbourne. This architectural gem is defined by a free-flowing living space. Shades of concrete, wood and metal clash magnificently within this room providing it with an overall sense of grandeur. While Architecton have created a clear differentiation of living space, with several distinct zones, the open plan nature of the design allows these spaces to link and the visual generosity of the entire space is revealed. The controlled monochromatic palette for the interior decoration throughout ensures that there are no jarring visuals and that the eye can move seamlessly across the space. From Archello: Read More
