Adding yet another beautiful modern home to their portfolio, Melbourne-based architecture practice Jackson Clements Burrows contributed a stunning facade for the suburban aspect of Middle Park, Melbourne, Australia. The Harold Street Residence was designed to become the perfect home for a couple with university age children. Set in a neighborhood landscape dominated by single story Victorian terraces, this contemporary residence explores a detailed engagement with the street, as well as a seamless connection between the garden and interiors.
You might remember the architect’s Elizabeth Street Residence, a home as sculptural as this one, with an eye-catching design. The architectural studio addressed the corner lot placement by creating a translucent cut into the architecture, exploring the private/public connections. The more private northern half of the site was adorned with a garden, creating continuous indoor/outdoor interactions. Pressed red brickwork defining a dynamic contemporary architecture are showcased as playful punctured detailing across the corner property. Although it seems like an artistic building, the modern construction acts as a comfortably elegant family home.
