Kew Villa is a transformation of a single-bedroom villa unit into a light-filled, three-bedroom dwelling to accommodate the growing needs of a young family. Located within a group of ten units, it boasts the features of a much more substantial home and demonstrates that comfortable and private family living can be achieved in unexpected places. Save this picture!© Emily Bartlett PhotographyThe purchase of a modestly sized and underutilized yard adjacent, from the owners’ corporation, enabled the extension.Consideration of how the interior and outdoor spaces would work together to maximize the sense of outlook and openness was critical to making the home feel generous. The previous design wrapped around a south facing courtyard. This courtyard was retained, but bolstered by the addition of an opposing deck space to create a band of outdoor space that bi-sects the home and provides wide views out. A natural fall of the land was exploited to create a sunken living with a greater ceiling height, transitioning seamlessly down to the surrounding garden. Extensive glazing and doors open out to the deck which acts as an outdoor room, with a built-in bench, planter box and a retractable awning for comfort in summer. Save this picture!© Emily Bartlett PhotographySave this picture!Proposed PlanIntegrated cabinetry maximizes efficiency by enabling multipurpose circulation spaces. A corridor that provides acoustic separation to bedrooms from the living areas discretely incorporates a study nook, book shelving and laundry hampers. The owners’ love of books inspired a long low-height bookcase that defines the entry from living area while also functioning as a balustrade between the split-levels.Save this picture!© Emily Bartlett PhotographyResources harvested include solar energy returning power back to the grid and rainwater to service the toilets. Existing brickwork that was demolished was reused to build some of the brick walls, with recycled brickwork utilized elsewhere. Save this picture!© Emily Bartlett PhotographyTo maintain the consistent appearance of the 1960s development, the front façade was retained and the prevailing building height was kept. Materials were selected to both sit comfortably amongst the existing textures, and quietly to allow the appreciation of space. Honest timeless materials such as recycled brick, blackbutt timber and plywood work in harmoniously and are both classic and contemporary.Save this picture!© Emily Bartlett PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessTwo Hói’s House / 85 DesignSelected ProjectsDes Érables Residence / NatureHumaineSelected Projects Share Kew Villa / McManus Lew Architects ArchDaily CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Melbourne, Australia Area:  124 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Australia “COPY” 2018 CopyAbout this officeMcManus Lew ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsMelbourneAustraliaPublished on February 07, 2019Cite: “Kew Villa / McManus Lew Architects” 06 Feb 2019.
