DKO Architecture creates a series townhouses in Melbourne’s Preston, to set out the propose an affordable, attainable and architectural housing offer within this bubble, to move the market forward in its aspiration for middle Melbourne.
The facade of the eight architecturally designed homes is a playfully modern take on the classic Melbourne townhouse with generous and sun-drenched interiors to match. Four townhouses and four apartments were developed, with all residences having immediate access to the park through a central walkway.
In terms of the interiors, a sleek, minimal palette was used, with a careful use of natural materials. Blonde timber floors are contrasted against stainless steel Ilve appliances and white cabinetry and walls, lending the residences an expansive feel. For both DKO and Milieu, there was a heavy focus during the design process on ensuring that the living spaces were sophisticated and livable – perfect for young families to grow in.
