The Architect's Notebook

What A Year! What A Project!

The awards keep rolling in for 2017!! The family home I mentioned in my last post has won another award and was also a finalist in two others!

The house in Glen Iris was once again, built by the team at Neumode Design & Construction and it picked up the award for Best Custom Home $1.5M – $2M in this year’s Housing Industry Association of Victoria “Victorian Housing Awards”.

With the extensive use of natural timber throughout , the house was also selected as a finalist in two categories at the 2017 Australian Timber Design Awards. Metroworks finished in the top six for the “Residential Class 1 New Buildings” category and top four in the “Timber Cladding” category. Pitted against buildings all around the country, this was a tough one to get through!

As I mentioned in my previous post, this house was inspired by the client’s holidays in Bali & Thailand, and was designed by Melissa in a pavilion style. It includes a dramatic 4.5m high roof line over the living area and a beautiful central swimming pool – visible throughout the ground floor level of the house.  If you’d like to read more about the project and check out the photos, CLICK HERE.
