    Robinson Road House in Melbourne by Steve Domoney Architecture

    AwesomeArchitecture Dec 5 '12 2

    Two defining notions drove the design for this new home in Hawthorn.

    Firstly, the recognition that the street is currently in transition with the post war brick bungalow style dwelling giving way to more recent contemporary dwellings.

    Secondly, with the establishment of a larger family home on the site than currently exists, the need to balance the perception of openness from within against a heightened need for privacy with the greater intensity of development now surrounding the site.

    In addressing the transitional quality of the streetscape, attention is given to how a new building will fit into a likely new streetscape rather than the existing one. This rationale is evident in the resulting and somewhat ‘self confident’ presence of the new home, awaiting the tide of new developments each of its flanks.

      WOW! I like it. ;D I like modern houses. They're great! :)

      Stairs are perfect. :) There's a swimming pool - super! :)

      I don't like only one thing. - Almost every wall is white. I prefer bright, peach colour. ;) But in this house, it doesn't matter. :) Even white is great. :)
