Nestled on the outskirts of Melbourne, in the quiet, leafy suburb of Park Orchards, sits this beautiful family home. Positioned on a spacious block, the existing pool and garden look to be sparked back to life through a playful, contemporary design concept, which draws on the stunning natural environment of the local surroundings.
The connection between the architecture and outdoors is re-energised through the entertaining areas, creating spaces that immerse and flow across the property. Natural stones, architectural concrete, soft timbers and an array of plant life has helped tease the existing landscape into this brilliant new space, which has been designed to be enjoyed throughout the four seasons.
The out of ground swimming pool tackles the sloping land, ensuring a visual continuity beyond and into the backyard, and provides its residents with effortless views when swimming, or sitting back and relaxing in a warm spa.
An expansive alfresco zone provides as a modern, functional entertainment space, featuring an outdoor kitchen and a carefully considered fire pit nook. In its secluded-ness, the home feels removed from suburbia, and yet through a highly refined and detailed approach to its landscaping, a contemporary comfort is felt.
This project is an exciting opportunity to add to what is already an enviable home, now adorned to flaunt a big wow factor. The design has successfully crafted a uniquely responsive outdoor space that listens to its landscape intuitively and emerges to be the beating heart of the home, all year round.
