From the outside-in, architecture and design are in constant conversation in the delivery of built form that embodies a natural and functional harmony. Designed by Hecker Guthrie, and intended to echo the building’s refined exterior; the interiors are an example of understated quality at its best. Resonating with the rhythm of daily life, a natural palette of tones and textures provide a calming foundation from which to go about the day to day.
Defined by authentic materiality, careful craftsmanship and a minimal, restrained sensibility, the external form of South Yarra House is intended as a respectful gesture to the historic neighbourhood. Designed by SJB, the Art Deco inspired tower provides an architectural landmark that promises to age gracefully in place for generations to come. Detailing the facade, tactile hand laid brickwork is used to create textural, intricately stepped edges, fluid archways and circular detailing, eloquently echoing the suburb’s natural rhythms.
