Rockingham Townhouse 2

Chris Briffa Architects as Architects

Spaciousness and a sense of grandeur define this new 3-level family home in Kew, Melbourne. Close attention to detail throughout achieves an overall feeling of co-ordinated luxury and elegance. Externally, the sandstone cladding and bronze detailing to the windows are a reference to the great 1930’s buildings Melbourne is renowned for; the banks and grand apartment buildings of that era. Bespoke interior design, inclusive of furniture selection and artwork and the subtle use of the client’s favourite colour blue lend an individuality and cool sophistication to all internal spaces. Architecturally, the living area features a double height volume opening to courtyard garden with swimming pool area allowing an abundance of natural light into the open plan kitchen, living and dining areas. An internal elevator will allow this home to remain viable as the owners age. Built to last, it is a ‘forever home’ in every sense of the word.
