Coral.

Celebrating Mid-century Modern architecture within the inner-city suburbs of Melbourne with bright coral accents. 

The bold facade takes cues from Mid-century modern architecture which strips away unnecessary ornament and highlights the design gesture with clarity. Featuring multiple operable screening of clean white lines, minimal decoration and a simple material palette of light cream bricks and bright orange elements, the interest and pattern are introduced through the connection to the landscaping and paving. 

This double-storey dwelling is designed with reverse-living, where the living room upstairs extends out onto a north facing balcony enabling activation of the streetscape, and the living downstairs sprawls out to the front garden having direct access to an outdoor entertainment area.

The house features 3-bedrooms on the ground, with 2.5 bathrooms and study. The coral colour is carried through inside with the kitchen's interior complementing with blue and green joinery that make the orange pop. This is paired with the simple white small format square tiles, balancing the bright colours.  

Project value: $1,150,000 including GST, design, consultant and authority fees, factory and site based construction. Panelised building system.
