Incredible Prahran House in Melbourne

The Prahran House in located in Melbourne, Australia and was designed by Nervegna Reed in collaboration with PH Architects. The brief of the project was based on the client’s wish to live in a contemporary home that hosted a gallery and a studio for artists’ meetings.

Here is more on the structure of the residence from the architects: “The house extends over 3 levels; the entry is on the middle, ground level, where all the living spaces flow around a courtyard, which is a slice of a circle. The dispersed placement of objects, materials and functions on this level works much like a layout of a pinball machine, each surface hinting at a multitude of possible routes that one could take through the building, sometimes encouraging a certain movement, sometimes not. The front study with adjoining bathroom is for visiting artists. Downstairs is a basement gallery, indirectly lit by a concrete light shaft / skylight which also functions as a seat and a sculpture podium.”

We appreciate the original approach to this contemporary living project, as well as the indoor-outdoor design similarities.
