Kew courtyard house

Located in the leafy Melbourne suburb Kew, is a forever home for a creative couple. The house supports their mutual love of entertaining, art, gardening and mid century architecture. The site was a previously subdivided in to a narrow and challenging plot being only 7m wide yet over 45m long with north following the long side of the site.
The brief was to create a two bedroom home with a generous study, two bathrooms and a sunny kitchen & dining with a separate living room, so planning was key.
Designed by Drawing Room architects, a central courtyard needed to be carved out to allow the living zones to take advantage of natural light and garden views, this courtyard would be the lungs, green and light lantern to the ground floor living areas. The study is also located on the ground level also with street views. The two bedrooms occupy the first floor allowing for private leafy views over surrounding rooftops.
