No Two The Same

Winner Multi Residential Design

Designer: Melbourne Design Studios Pty Ltd
Builder: H Daniel Constructions
Photographer: Peter Clarke Photography
Location: Richmond, VIC

Few projects achieve the outcomes of excellence in areas of design criteria; this, however does just that. The winner of this year’s multi-residential award combines the skill of great site planning, well-resolved layout design, beautiful interiors, and well thought-out use of materials inside and out. The clever use of screens to form elements of the external façade creates an integrated façade to the laneway approach. The garage doors hide behind the timber battening which seamlessly reads as part of the external timber cladding. The clean-lined interiors are filled with light from the internal courtyards, and the north-facing gardens which allows light to be drawn into the living spaces. All aspects of this design have been well crafted and beautifully executed.
