With views across Northcote rooftops and towards Melbourne’s CBD, the Northcote residence creates a setting that accommodates for the clients’ passion for cooking and entertaining.

Faced with the challenges of a sloping, south-facing site, but presented with the opportunities of magnificent city views, this 4-bedroom family home focuses on maximising natural light – its Australian materials palette setting the scene for its owners’ lifestyle.

  • Nestled amongst an eclectic mix of immaculate Edwardian houses, mansions of yesteryear and new complexes, we were conscious of the need for our house on the hill to complement the neighbouring streetscapes.

  • The new form is subtle and unassuming with restraint exercised heavily throughout to allow for moments of simplicity, with panoramic views given the space to speak for themselves.

Inspired by the veranda-fronted vernacular of the existing structure, we responded with a humble low-lying street frontage in which soaring, light filled living spaces are cleverly concealed beyond the front door.
