moonee ponds residence ii

A day-lit translucent stone screen mediates between new and old forming a radiant vista from the entry hall of this double fronted Victorian home. Beyond is a an assemblage of offset but interconnected white volumes, each leading on, culminating in a double height living space which in turn lifts the eye above the jacaranda trees to embrace an adjacent church spire. Basalt, marble and limestone linings create a lustre, a serviceability and an emotive character to the spaces.
