Kew Pool House

This beautiful Post War home was renovated to restore the qualities of the classic interiors and to add more contemporary spaces for everyday living. Boasting an amazing view over the Yarra River and Studley Park, our Kew project enabled our practice to deliver a high quality outcome that took advantage of these views whilst adhering to local planning policy.

Opportunities were found in capturing views throughout the house, and then back into the house. The original features were restored and add elegance to the more formal areas, including deep cornices and skirting boards; whilst the kitchens and bathrooms hold the same elegance but in a more contemporary style.

The final product explores the mix of new and old, and incorporates elements of natural materials to help the home blend into the dense vegetation in the area. Including a pool and exterior lounge area has made this home truly impressive.
