Unassuming Aesthetic of Humble House: A Refined Living Experience in Melbourne

FeaturedUnassuming Aesthetic of Humble House: A Refined Living Experience in Melbourne

Humble House, a two-storey house designed by R Architecture located in Berwick, Melbourne, Australia, is a contemporary house with timeless finishes and low-maintenance living.

With the precision and foresight of a sculptor, this project chips away at the stifling ‘nice to haves’ of homelife, leaving behind only the essentials of elegant, functional living — the result is a sloping form that echoes the natural elevations of its site, strategically carved into three geometric pavilions. A stone’s throw away from Wilson Botanic Gardens, Humble House brings the outdoors in at every opportunity. Drawing on the client’s cultural heritage, the concept embodies key traits found in traditional Indian homes and offers a refined, though unassuming aesthetic that advocates for the joys of stripping away excess and living simply with ease.

Autumn House: A Victorian Terrace Transformed by Studio Bright

Autumn House: A Victorian Terrace Transformed by Studio Bright

Introducing Autumn House – a stunning Victorian terrace house situated in Melbourne, Australia. Designed by Studio Bright in 2021, this property features a careful new layer stitched into the existing architecture and an 80’s renovation by architect Mick Jorgensen.

This project offers the perfect balance between the original Victorian elements and the addition by Studio Bright. It offers northern sunlight, raw-timber-lined ceilings, red brick floors and an outlook to the elm tree. The new work forms a series of curving and angled moves at ground level, and the exterior is defined by a mesh-screen clad wedge. It is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Melbourne city, offering a secret garden bursting out over the brick wall.

Discover Alto, a stunning house in Melbourne, Australia designed in 2022 by Jolson Architecture Interiors.

Nestled in a heritage cul de sac, this house has been thoughtfully renovated to meet the needs of a modern family while retaining the features that bind it to its neighbors. Step inside to appreciate the double height void and the interplay between existing and new, the generous swathes of linen and the muted tones for a soft backdrop, the sculpted firewood tray and the brush of skin against a bush hammered bench.

Alto celebrates the nuance of architectural renovation and its harmonious blend of modern and traditional style.
