This renovation was performed â€“ somewhat atypically for Melbourne â€“ at the front of the property. The owner wanted a garage that would double as a painting studio and entertaining space that could be opened out onto the garden and pool within the property. Additionally, the new structure was to stand out visually from the existing house, and control views between the neighbouring buildings and the private open spaces.
The result is a little black box that nestles in between the surrounding houses and foliage. Crisp lines and clean junctions were achieved through meticulous detailing.
