South Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Ivy Home is residential architectural project designed and built by Seidler Group and located in South Melbourne, Victoria.
Ivy home is about bringing new life to a Victorian heritage home. The clients sought light, transparency and space in their traditionally narrow South Melbourne Victorian home.
Seidler Group’s solution combined landscape architecture and clever fabrication to create a spacious oasis of white and green, within the confines of the narrow block. A custom designed floating staircase maximises the outlook through a glazed southern perimeter overlooking an Ivy garden, offering a green backdrop against the adjoining boundary wall.
The interior is bright and airy with raw, neutral colour palate. Each space is open and filled with light, giving this home fresh new life. The styling was undertaken by the clients themselves who have added beautiful furniture pieces and injected each space with colour and character, giving a real sense of style to the home.
Exposed timber fins direct views from the upper entertaining room into a lush backyard complete with a floating weatherboard bathing box, a further extension from the original home.
The garage extensions timber façade references coastal tones injecting warmth into the outdoor entertaining space complete with a spa.
