Blyth Street, Melbourne Australia - If Architecture

"This ultra-modern townhouse is set on a tight 12.95m frontage in Altona. The minimalist architecture includes custom features such as mechanical louvres to the north façade, a 2.5 wide pivot front door, a double height void and laser cut screens. The high-end detail and finishes called for an uncompromisingly contemporary interior design treatment and the judicious selection of a highly individual collection of furniture and fittings. Bold shapes and colours throughout the living spaces are highlighted by elegant timber joinery and a unique custom-made concrete floor light and studio-style lighting fixtures. A mixture of classic and contemporary furniture - an amalgam of leathers, velvet, woven cord, wool and chunky knits - contrasts with the hard lines of the built form. For the furnishings and fabrics, we chose cool neutral tones to suit the interior finishes, while adding variety in texture. We also advised the client on what artworks to purchase: vibrantly coloured, graphic, geometric. In the kitchen and dining spaces, strong furniture lines contrast the dark American oak floors and the near-white Calcutta marble benches, adding detail and depth. The overall impression is edgy, individual, minimal and masculine. A home that manages to be both a homage to style and a serene space for resident and guests." - if architecture
