Rowena Pde, Richmond
Construction featured in Grand Designs Australia, September 2013
This luxury residence was designed for a young family of 3 and includes 3 bedrooms, each with their own ensuite, casual and formal living spaces, along with basement level theatre, gymnasium and garaging for 2 cars. Access to all levels is either via a timber staircase or a lift, which terminates spectacularly on the roof terrace, where 360degree views are provided. An additional ground level, external space includes bbq facilities and a feature in-ground pool, with direct acess from the casual living space, allowing easy entertaining in the privacy afforded by the inward looking site. The unusual, tight, infill site, accessed via a narrow laneway, provides the occupants with privacy and exclusivity. However during construction, these conditions required high levels of co-ordination by Domicile to ensure the challenges of the site did not impact on the construction timeframes and quality.
