Port Melbourne house
The architecture by Michael Ellis was largely resolved when we entered this Port Melbourne project. The client wanted to make sure the internal spaces worked for her family of five. The laundry, ensuite, bathroom and WIR were reconfigured, and the kitchen joinery was designed to complement the curved form of the external structure. Joinery was added to the upstairs study area and to the living area. A rich paint colour was chosen to add depth and allow the prominent positioning of the television to disappear into the wall. Brass handles in the kitchen contrast with the soft blue/grey tiles and with the richness of the living room wall and the golden tallowood floors.
