The clients came to our office with the intention of moving into property development. The common ground was that they were focused on presenting projects with high design content, supporting a different visual approach. In the early design phase we were looking to create an open, more interactive street presence, which led to a very different design response.

The house sits lightly balanced on angled steel posts again reminiscent of the stereo cabinet legs, which affords the house the appearance of floating out across the land.

Silvertop Ash timber has a unique ability to assimilate into the surrounds, offering a very different visual affect. To the North the timber is still evident but only on the third story – as from this vantage point we wanted the upper level to appear as a tree house. ExoTec Façade Panel System was the other main material used because it offers a refreshing contrast to the timber.

The interior begins with a flat veneer wall on approach. Its intention is to create the feeling of being at the base of a huge tree. Practically, it houses the cloak, powder room, cellar and on into the integrated kitchen. It’s all achieved with hidden doors that, when opened, offer an unexpected surprise.

The cantilevered box on the street facade internally houses the day bed and library, which interacts with the study space. Chosen for its ability to reflect the outer landscape, a glass splash back wall was placed in the study space.

The classic Calcutta Marble has been used in the bathrooms, while the kitchen has Caesar stone bench tops and a preparation cube at the end of the main island bench.Save this picture!© Robert HamerProject gallerySee allShow lessSCI-Arc Fall 2011 Lectures & ExhibitionsArticlesUrban Reserve 22 / Vincent Snyder ArchitectsArticles Share Area:  321 m² Photographs Kew House / Vibe Design Groupcenter_img Kew House / Vibe Design GroupSave this projectSaveKew House / Vibe Design Group ArchDaily Australia Architects: Vibe Design Group Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Robert Hamer+ 19 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeVibe Design GroupOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasMelbourneHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on August 15, 2011Cite: “Kew House / Vibe Design Group” 15 Aug 2011.
